Ingredients
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees; have a baking sheet or heatproof platter ready to keep cooked pancakes warm in the oven.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter and egg. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not overmix; a few small lumps are fine).
  4. Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium. Lightly spray with cooking oil.
  5. For each pancake, depending on the desired size, scoop with a ¼ cup of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round (you should be able to fit 2 to 3 in a large skillet or 1 large.
  6. Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm in oven. Continue with more spray and remaining batter. Serve warm, with desired toppings.
