This batter mix has gone through alot of changes. This final mix is our favorite family recipe, and it makes enough for a large family (6+ people). Cut the ingredients in half to make a smaller mix.
3 Cups Flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
4 Tsp. Baking Powder
2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tsp. Salt
2 1/2 Cups Milk
1/4 Cup Oil
3 Eggs
1 Tsp. Vanilla

Turn on skillet or griddle to warm.
In large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
Add milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla, mix well with a whisk.
If needed, grease pan, or use nonstick spray.
1/4 cup of batter makes small round pancakes, 1/2 cup of batter makes a large pancake.
Once the batter has bubbled on top, flip the pancake for thourough cooking.
Plan to have plenty of butter and syrup handy- these go fast!
