My Favorite "OLD" Cookbook & Pancake Recipe

My fav cookbook is the Better Homes & Gardens NEW COOK BOOK, from like the year I was born! (seventies, maybe??!!) My mother actually used this cookbook *(see the mess on the pages & the cover? Shows it is a good cookbook, like I said!!) & it has *THE*BEST* Pancake recipe ever!

Favorite Pancakes Recipe
1 & a 1/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour (use unbleached, for health)
3 t. baking powder*
1 T. Sugar
1/2 t. salt
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk
2 T. vegetable oil
Sift dry ingedients together (which I never do).
Combine egg, milk, & oil; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until mositened.
Cook on hot griddle # When it bubbles, it is about done.
Makes about 12 dollar-size or eight 4-inch pancakes
(which is why I triple this recipe for our growing children!)

#Hot Tip:(when you sprinkle drops of water on it & they sizzle into oblivion, then it is the right temp.)
*Hot Tip:
Always use baking powder with NO Aluminum... and by the way, All baking powders in the grocery stores contain aluminum, that we have in around here,
except Rumford Brand, which is owned by Clabber Girl, which HAS alum. in it!! Go figure!
