Makes 12.

Note: Use less liquid for thicker batter and pancakes, more liquid for thinner. You’re the boss. From James P. Dewan.

• 2 c. all-purpose flour

• 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

• 1 tsp. baking soda

• Pinch salt

• 1 1/2 c. milk

• 3 eggs, beaten

• 1 stick (1/2 c.) butter, melted

• Butter, unmelted, as needed

• Maple syrup, as needed

• Sautéed apples (see recipe)

Directions

Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, combine milk, eggs and melted butter.

Pour liquid into flour mixture, and combine with a rubber spatula or whisk until just blended. Do not overmix.

Pour desired amount of batter onto a greased hot griddle or cast iron skillet and cook until bubbles form on top and just begin to pop. Flip pancakes and cook on other side until done, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately with butter, maple syrup and sautéed apples.
