This is a Recipe for a Basic Pancake mix which I use all the time... They are fluffy and thick so you don't need many to fill you up... If you happen to run out of bread they make a great PB&J or make the batter slightly thinner to make a great flavorful wrap for your favorite meat or scrambled eggs and cheese... Top them with fruit or your favorite syrup No matter what you do with them you will enjoy them... Yummy... :)

Basic Pancake Batter

1/2 Cup Milk
1 Egg
2 Tbls Melted Butter or Margarine
1 Cup Flour
2 Tsps Baking Powder
2 Tbls Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1  Pinch of ground Allspice

Put egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla into a bowl and mix well then set aside...
Mix all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and whisk or sift together add egg mixture and whisk till all lumps are gone...spoon onto hot greased skillet and cook till bubbly all over and lightly browned on the bottom then flip and cook till lightly brown on second side...

If desired you can add any fruit to the batter in quantity that you desire or add it on top at the table....

For Waffles: double all ingredients EXCEPT ALLSPICE then  add an extra 1/2 cup of milk and 1 Tbl of melted butter.

For Chocolate Peanut Butter: Double all ingredients  LEAVING OUT ALLSPICE then add 1/2 Cup Cocoa, 1/4 Tsp salt, and 1/2 bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Chips.

Peanut Butter Topping: Mix 2Tbls Peanut Butter with 1 Tbl water and microwave until melted stirring every 10 seconds for up to 30 seconds if it is still too thick add water and repeat heating in 10 second intervals until you have the desired consistency...

Top with desired topping and enjoy...
