I'm very fond of pancakes- as long as they're for dinner. My friend Jaymi and here brood were over for dinner a while ago and she was kind enough to share her perfect pancake recipe. Below is the insanely simple base which can be jazzed up any way you like.
1 cup flour (I use 1/2 whole wheat pastry, 1/2 organic white)
1 cup water
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbs sweeter (I use maple syrup)
Stir it all together, pour by 1/4 cup onto a hot griddle, flip and chow.
As pictured the pancakes contain 1 tsp vanilla, a shimmy, shimmy, shake of cinnamon, 2 diced apples and 1/4 cup of apple sauce.
