Perfect Pancakes

Even people who aren't fond of pancakes have raved about this recipe!

1 1/2 c. flour
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 large eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. butter, melted

In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In a smaller bowl, beat the eggs, then add in the milk and vanilla. Pour in the melted butter and add mixture to dry ingredients immediately. Whisk until batter is just formed (in other words, be careful not to over-mix so the pancakes will be as tender and fluffy as possible).

Heat a skillet over medium heat and pour on about 1/4 c. batter. Cook on first side until bubbles begin to break the surface and the undersides are golden-brown (about 2 minutes). Flip and cook about 1 minute more.

If you like blueberry pancakes, this is a great recipe to use. Just add the blueberries right before you flip the pancakes (when bubbles break the surface of the pancake). Same goes for chocolate chips!
