Old Fashion Pancakes

Few things are as good for breakfast (or occasionally dinner) as pancakes.  This simple, basic, old fashion recipe for pancakes fits the bill.  These pancakes are fluffy, flavorful, and filling. And they're made with staple ingredients and mixed by hand.  Nothing like going back to the original recipe to make a good ol' standby like pancakes.  Your hungry crew won't be disappointed!  Here's the skinny...
3 cups flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
5 1/4 baking powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 Tablespoons butter, melted & cooled

Mix flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.  Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.  Add eggs, milk, vanilla, and butter into the well.  Slowly stir until all the ingredients are incorporated.  Batter will be slightly lumpy.  Let batter sit for 5-10 minutes.
Meanwhile heat griddle over medium-high heat.  Coat griddle with butter or canola oil.  Pour about 1/4 cup batter per pancake on the hot griddle.  Flip pancake when bubbles start to rise to the top.  Continue to cook pancake until bottom is golden brown.
Serve pancakes warm with butter and syrup.  Enjoy!  Makes 24-26 six inch pancakes.
