This is my dadâ€™s recipe for pancakes. Heâ€™s made them for me every time I do something special and on random days too. Theyâ€™re the best tasting breakfast cakes you have and will ever taste. I stake my entire reputation that you will enjoy these pancakes. I could circulate a petition of everyone who agrees with me on this point, but the list would be too long to be worth the effort.
They taste much much better than Bisquick.
Mix the eggs, oil, and milk in a bowl until fluffy with the whisk in a bowl. The eggs should be totally blended in. This is the key to the fluff so be sure to whisk really well. (Whisk it. Whisk it good.)
Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a separate bowl until blended.
Pour the wet bowl into the dry. Mix with the whisk. Be sure to fluff again! Itâ€™s okay if there are a few small lumps of dry mix, but try to get it all worked in.
Pour by the 1/3 cup onto medium hot griddle/frying pan. This is the hardest part because the pan cannot be too hot. If you have a gas burner like me, it is really difficult to keep the temperature low. But this is essential. Otherwise, youâ€™ll get burnt cakes with raw centers. Disgusting.
Flip the pancake when when the top looks really bubbly. It is about two minutes. The second side doesnâ€™t cook nearly so long (less than a minute).
Eat as many as you can before you get sick.
