Making American pancakes is a simple and delicious way to start the day. To make American pancakes, you will need the following ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup milk, 2 tablespoons butter, melted, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
To begin, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg, and vanilla extract until combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over mix.
Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Grease the pan with butter or oil. Once heated, spoon the batter onto the pan in 1/4 cup portions. Cook the pancakes for about 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Serve the pancakes with butter, syrup, whipped cream, or your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
