Country Griddle Cakes
A good, basic recipe for sweet milk griddle cakes, another name for pancakes.
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
3 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter, or as needed
Butter for accompaniment (optional)
Maple syrup for accompaniment (optional)
- Stir first 4 ingredients in large bowl. Whisk milk, melted butter and eggs in medium bowl. Add to dry ingredients and whisk until blended but small lumps remain. Let stand 30 minutes.
- Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Drop batter by scant 1/4 cupfuls into skillet. Cook pancakes until bottoms are golden brown and bubbles form on top, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook until bottoms are golden brown, about 1 minute. Transfer to platter. Tent griddle cakes with foil to keep warm.
- Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to skillet as necessary.
- Serve pancakes hot with butter and maple syrup, if desired.
