Dave’s Very Good Pancakes!

Apparently the volcano is key.

1 1/3 cups flour

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 tblsp sugar

mix that all and make a volcano shape

then separately mix:

1 egg

1 1/4 cup milk

3 tbslps vegetable oil

1/4 tsp vanilla

and pour the wet into the volcano’s center, so it explodes over the sides and you can pretend you’re at Pompei.

Mix it up, but not too much, and cook ladlefuls in butter over medium heat.

Mix ingredients in the order given
Drop by large spoon into pan prepared with margarine for frying.

Keep warm in ovenproof dish and serve with
powdered sugar, syrup or preserves as accompaniment

Or (preferably) serve with fresh, stoned, lightly stewed prune plums*
