INGREDIENTS:
1.5 cups Plain Flour
1 teaspoon Salt
3 tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 or 2 Eggs
3 tablespoons melted butter
1.25 cups Milk

Sift all the dry ingredients together.
Combine the Milk and Butter.
Lightly beat the eggs, then mix them into the Milk mixture.
Mix the wet and dry ingredients together, getting a fairly smooth consistency. A few lumps won't seriously affect anything, but it should be fairly smooth.

Heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium to med. high heat until water bounces and evaporates when dropped onto the surface.

Slowly pour the batter onto the surface... a pancake around 3 inches across is reasonable size.

When the top surface of the pancake is full of little air holes, and appears to be a bit dry at the edges, carefully flip it over.

The second side will cook in around half the time as the first.

Only flip it ONCE!!

Place the hot pancakes on a piece of tin foil, with a paper towel lining, until they're all cooked.

Cover with butter and maple syrup, and ENJOY!!!

NOTE: For those with dietary restrictions, you can substitute wheat-free flour, soya milk, and margarine for the appropriate ingredients!

Hey now, Dan... pancakes aren't political! That's where you have the problem with 'perfect' and 'American'! :tongue:

I have to say I never tried Canadian pancakes, either... but I would assume (and I'm sure Canadians would argue!) that they'd be pretty much the same as my American pancakes! (Maybe the maple syrup would taste more expensive, though!)

You pays your money .... Tate& Lyle flavoured syrup cheapo; but it takes 40litres of the runny stuff from a Canadian sugar maple tree to make 1 litre of the real thing, so I spose it's got to cost

Too true, Teapot! Me being a naturally frugal New Englander, I've developed a fondness for the cheap American imitation syrup! (Which was a popular addition to my cheap, American pancakes last weekend!)
