2 large eggs
1 cup reduced-fat milk
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1¼ cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
½ teaspoon table salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1. Insert plates on griddle side. Set the Cuisinart® Griddler® Compact between Medium and High and preheat.
2. Put the eggs, milk and vanilla extract into a small bowl and whisk to blend until smooth; reserve. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a separate, medium bowl. Stir with a whisk to blend. Add the egg/milk mixture and stir until just blended. Stir in the melted, cooled butter. Do not over-mix.
3. Open preheated unit to extend flat. Using a ¼-cup measure, drop batter onto preheated griddle. Cook pancakes until bubbles form, about 2 minutes; flip and cook until done, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer to warm plates to serve. As you finish each batch of pancakes, you can keep them warm on a wire rack placed on a baking sheet in a low oven (200°F). Repeat until all the batter is used.
Chocolate Swirl pancakes: Prepare batter as above, adding an extra ¼ cup of milk. Pour about ¼ of the batter into a separate mixing bowl and whisk in 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder and ¹⁄³ cup melted semisweet chocolate chips.
Once griddle is hot, drop plain batter onto griddle using ¼-cup measure. Immediately drop dollops of the chocolate batter on top center of plain batter in 1 teaspoon amounts. Swirl chocolate into regular batter using either the teaspoon itself or a wooden toothpick to create different swirls and designs.
Cook as above, about 2 minutes per side, flipping once bubbles form and pop.
