Simple Pancakes

Sometimes I'm amazed at how some people still think they have to buy bisquick or pancake mix in order to make pancakes or waffles. When all the mixes are, is simple ingrediants we already have thrown together in a box along with a whole bunch stuff I cant pronounce. This recipe is from The Joy of Cooking by Irma S. Rombauer and her daughter Marion Rombauer Becker.


Makes about 14 4in. cakes(or 8 of "my family size")

1 1/2 Cups Flour
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1 3/4 baking powder

-Sift together and in a seperate bowl beat 2 eggs lightly, to this add

3 Tbsp melted butter
1-1 1/4 cups milk

-Combine wet ingrediants to dry ingrediants and brown batter on hot griddle.

Vintage Cookbooks are for everyone who has ever wanted to bake something special and turned to a modern cookbook and realized they never seem to have all the ingredients at the same time, there're for history lovers that want to feel connected to the past in a way that's missing in history books, there're for the people that love that musty old book smell and laugh at kindle's, they're for people that feel like we as a society have gone a little too far, a tad off course with life and want to get back to the simple and the real, and they're for the people that want to pay homage to all the grandma's and great aunts that did it best!
