- 2 tablespoons to ½ cup butter (depending on preference)

- 1 cup all-purpose flour

- 1 cup milk

- 6 eggs, lightly beaten

- 3/4 teaspoon salt


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Melt butter in medium to large baking dish. (medium if you want thicker pancakes, large if you want thinner pancakes)

2. In a medium bowl, mix flour, milk, eggs and salt. Pour mixture into baking dish.

3. Bake on center rack in preheated oven for 12-25 minutes, or until pancakes appear golden brown (pancakes usually become fluffy and bumpy when they are fully cooked)

4. Enjoy with syrup, yogurt or fruit!
