1.5 cups flour
3.5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1.25 cups milk
3 tablespoons melted butter
In a mixer or a bowl, sift together the flour. Sifting is where you put the flour in a colander and shake the colander from side to side until the flour has fully fallen through into the bowl. Or you can do it my way and just dump the flour in the bowl. Your choice.
Add into the same bowl the baking powder, salt, and sugar. Stir it together with a whisk or one of those wooden spoons. Or you can use a fork. There's probably no wrong way to do this.
Make a hole in the center, if you want, where you pour in the milk, egg, and melted butter. Or you can just dump them in like with the flour. Then mix until smooth. You might have to scrub extra at the bottom. Recently was making pancakes and realized there was a quarter cup of just pure flour at the bottom. Don't be me.
Heat a frying pan. Once heated, add in a dab of melted butter. The amount that a dab is, is completely up to you. Your chaos or your precision, either way I'm sure it'll be fine.
Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan using about 1/4 cup for each pancake.
The trick is to wait until the bubbles begin to pop up top. Not one or two bubbles popping, but at least 6-10. Then you can use a spatula to flip it to the other side. After that, I have nothing to tell you to make sure you don't burn the bottom. There's no more bubbles so it's purely your own skill at this point. I wish you luck.
Once done, put the pancakes on a plate. I recommend drizzling some blackberry honey on top, maybe mixed with some butter! Absolutely delicious.
