Delightfully Delicious Pancakes!

So, the other morning the hubby and I woke up and were deciding what we were going to have for breakfast (like we do every weekend morning). I suggested pancakes since I had been having mad cravings for them lately!!! I get up and go straight for the pantry to grab out the Bisquik! I opened the box and to my dismay what did I find???? BUGS!!!!!! Eeeeeeeks!!!!!!!! So, what does any wonderfully amazing wife do? I put on my thinking cap and decided to make them from scratch! I knew we had everything to make pancakes, it was just a matter of putting all the ingredients together. Davey said that I didn't have to go through so much effort for breakfast....but how much effort does making pancakes take??? Not a whole lot!  Besides, it was a very valid excuse to use my oh so loved KitchenAid Stand Mixer! ;) Love that thing! LOL! I busted it out, all like, 50lbs of it...(I know, an exaggeration, but it feels like that at times) and started mixin' away. I mixed 2 different recipes together to make them a little extra special...and that they were! They were the most delicious pancakes I have ever eaten! IDK if it was just cuz I had been craving them, or if they really were that awesome, but the hubby loved them (which is not common for him to say he loves a food) so all was good in my book!!!!

I didn't get any pix since I made them before I decided to start my bloggin' journey, but here is the recipe for Amy's Delightfully Delicious Pancakes!

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I highly recommend Pillsbury, not a store brand name. I have had bad luck with store brand flour for some reason)
3 1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 TBSP white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 TBSP butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all ingredients together any way you like.
Heat a skillet on medium heat and melt the butter in the skillet.
Pour 1/4 cup batter into skillet. Heat for about a minute and a half to 2 minutes, then flip.
Pancakes are done with golden brown on both sides.
I like to wipe the old butter out of the skillet and melt fresh butter for each pancake.....but BEWARE.....skillet IS hot (duh) so don't burn yourself! ;)
Serve with butter, syrup, and/or jelly......or any pancake toppings your heart desires (powdered sugar, bananas, fresh berries.....)

Hope you enjoy!!! :D
