This is the pancake recipe we always use from the Better Homes and Garden cookbook! Enjoy!

1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
1 Tablespoons canola oil

Stir together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients. Mix together. I use a whisk to mix the ingredients and I usually add more milk to thin the batter out. (I probably add 1/4 to a 1/2 cup more milk because I don't like thick pancakes. I do this when everything is already mixed and just eye ball the milk.) Cook in a pan with oil until lightly browned. Our family likes to add chocolate chips to the pancakes for a special treat!
