No Fail Pancakes

These pancakes are so yummy that you don't have to put any maple syrup on them! You can if you'd like, but they are fluffy and oh so sweet! I usually just put a sunny side up egg on top and eat it just like that! And sometimes the kids eat these without syrup!

Here is the recipe:
1 Cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon brown sugar
3/4 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 Cup of buttermilk (if you do not have buttermilk you can do 1 Cup of normal milk and add 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar, just let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted ( I didn't have butter - oops - so I substituted the butter for 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil!)
1 large egg

Get a medium bowl and whisk all dry ingredients. Then get a 2 cup measuring cup and add milk and butter or oil and mix. Add the milk mixture to dry ingredients and then add egg. Mix until just blended. Do not over mix the batter. Heat your skillet. While skillet is being heated you will start to notice your batter getting little air bubbles. That's just perfect! Brush your griddle with a non-stick spray or some vegetable oil and pour batter on griddle about 1/3 cup at a time. When surface of pancake starts to bubble, flip the pancake and cook until remaining side is browned. ENJOY!

Yields 7 5in. pancakes!
