Pancakes
This is my favorite pancake recipe. I've been making it for years! Both girls love them and we keep the leftovers and heat them up for a snack or for breakfast the next day. Even picky Olivia gobbles these up! 
I have two versions of these pancakes - one made with all-purpose flour and vanilla extract and one with a mixture of all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour with caramel extract.
Both recipes are below!

Version One
Ingredients:
1.5 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder 
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp cooking oil
1.5 cups milk *see note below
1/2 - 1 tsp Vanilla
** For optional add ins, see note below 

Version Two (Pictured Above)
Ingredients:
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt

1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp cooking oil
1.5 cups milk *see note below
1/2 tsp Watkins Caramel Extract
** For optional add ins, see note below

Directions:
Whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a medium size bowl.
Beat egg slightly in a small bowl. Mix in milk, oil and extract. Add to dry ingredients and stir. 
Do not over mix, batter will be slightly lumpy. 
Drop batter on to lightly greased, pre-heated pan or griddle. 
When bubbles appear and edges begin to dry, flip over and finish cooking.
Serve with fruit, butter, maple syrup or your favorite pancake toppings!

*Add more or less milk for thinner or thicker pancakes. 
**Sometimes I add in fruit like, blueberries, bananas or strawberries before cooking. And on special occasions like birthdays or just because, we make 'Party Pancakes' by adding sprinkles into the batter!

Enjoy!
