Ingredients

1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, slightly beaten
1-1/2 cups buttermilk or sour milk (see tip)
3 tablespoons cooking oil
Desired fruit options (optional)
Desired syrup (optional)


In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.


In another bowl use a fork to combine egg, buttermilk, and oil.


Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture.


Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).


If desired, stir in fruit.


For standard-size pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter if necessary.


For dollar-size pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon batter.


Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry.


Serve warm.


If desired, top with syrup.
