When my kids stayed overnight at the grandparent’s house, my father-in-law would make them pancakes for breakfast. On the day of his funeral, the boys asked me to make them pancakes. At first, I told them no because I did not think I would have time to make them any pancakes. I used a baking mix to make the pancakes because I did not have time to make them from scratch.
When I made it for breakfast one morning, the Wee One licked his lips when I asked him what he thought of the pancakes. He told me that licking his lips meant he liked them. So he gives his seal of approval.

- 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp. melted butter

- In a med. mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- Add the buttermilk and beaten egg. Stir to combine ingredients.
- Next add the melted butter, vanilla, and sugar. Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
- Grease your griddle or griddle pan with butter or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
