In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in milk, egg and melted cool butter; mix until smooth. Let rest 10 -15 minutes while the griddle or frying pan heats to medium -high.  Pour batter onto hot griddle, using approximately 1/4 c. for each pancake. Brown on both sides. Serve hot .


 I love pancakes!!! Too much. I order them time and time again  in restaurants only to be disappointed by box mixes, even at my age! Pancakes and waffles are the first things I actually started cooking as a young girl, on Saturday mornings, for our large family back in Michigan. To this day, as I read this recipe and the instructions state, make a well, it takes me back to my mothers kitchen, learning what a well is in the flour mixture.
This is my favorite pancake recipe, rich and buttery. I do like a 50/50 whole wheat to white flour. I will add raisins,nuts and cinnamon.  Mash bananas and blend them in. Stack them high with fresh sliced strawberries toppling over them. I will leave them plain and stuff them with scambled eggs and topp them with maple syrup with a side of bacon. I love pancakes!
