Country Griddle Cakes

No recipe image available.A good, basic recipe for sweet milk griddle cakes, another name for pancakes.

Recipe Ingredients:

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)

Cooking Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Repeat with remaining batter, adding more butter to skillet as necessary.
  4. Serve pancakes hot with butter and maple syrup, if desired.
