next weekend. It can be dressed up by mixing in fresh or frozen fruit, or nuts
and chocolate chips.

1.  Fit the grill with the griddle plates and preheat both plates to 350°F.

2.  Put the eggs, milk and vanilla in 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, or cooked pancakes will be thin and tough – batter should be
a bit lumpy.

3.  Using a ¼-cup measure, drop batter onto preheated griddle (if you like extra buttery pancakes, put about ½ tablespoon of butter on each plate and melt before dropping batter on plates). Cook pancakes until bubbles form, about 2 minutes; flip and cook until done, about 2 minutes longer.

4.  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.
