Pour 1/3 cup batter onto your skillet and cook until both sides are golden brown. And it's done!
If you're going for a classic breakfast/brunch, serve the pancakes hot with butter and pure maple syrup. If you like all the fixings, go crazy with blueberries, peaches, chocolate chips, bananas, peanut butter or nuts. Add the fruits, chocolate chips or nuts to your batter before you cook your pancake. The peanut butter is spread on the pancake when served.
Hungry sweet-toothed eaters will appreciate the peanut butter and chocolate chip combo.
