Sharl says he loves my pancakes because I make them from scratch. I don't know why people bother to use mixes because there is ABSOLUTELY nothing hard or time consuming about making pancakes from scratch. I got this recipe from this old school Good Housekeeping cookbook my mom found at a used book store and it has EVERY basic recipe you could need.
My version has cinnamon in the batter and it serves 2 (about 6-7 pancakes).

1/2 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 cup of milk (or add more if you like thinner pancakes)
1 egg
1 1/2 tbsp melted butter

1. Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl. The mixture will be slightly lumpy, which is all good, but it should be thin enough to spread out easily in the pan.
2. Ladle portions into a hot slightly greased pan or griddle. Once bubbles form on the tops of the pancakes, it's time to flip. Both sides should be golden brown. I usually put cooked pancakes into a warmed oven at 150F until I finish the entire batch. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
