Best Pancakes

In honor of Father's Day next weekend, why not whip up a batch of light and fluffy pancakes for the Dad in your life?  Of course, because we always have strawberries in the house, I love to top mine with a whole bunch of them, but choose whatever he likes; these fluffy babies will taste great with any topping!  Throw in a dash of cinnamon, or a bit of almond extract, maybe some melted chocolate after you pour the batter in the pan and swirl it through - these pancakes are a favorite here and they are my go-to when it has been a long day and I don't have time or energy to make dinner!

Fluffy pancakes|(yield 5-6 med/large pancakes)
1 cup flour (you can use white, whole wheat or a combination)
1 Tbsp sugar
1 heaping Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp vegetable oil

Whisk together the dry ingredients, create a well in the centre & add wet.  Stir until combined and let sit for a few minutes before scooping onto grill or frying pan; this give the baking powder time to do its "fluffening" magic!
