Grandma’s Old-Fashioned Pancakes

1 ½ cups Panhandle Milling Organic All-purpose Flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

1 Tbsp. sugar

1 ½ cup milk or soymilk

3 Tbsp. butter or oil


  • Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl. Make a hole in the center of the dry ingredients, pour in the milk and melted butter; mix until smooth, about 20 turns.
