Last night after work I had a craving for pancakes. I've maybe made them twice before, and both times I've set off my smoke detector. I'm proud to say that even though there was smoke, there was no alarm. And the pancakes weren't blackened!


1 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cooking oil


1. In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, set aside.
2. In another medium mixing bowl combine egg, milk, and cooking oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir just till moistened (batter should be lumpy).
3. For standard sized pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet.

Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each sideor till pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Makes 8 to 10 standard size pancakes.
