1.  Fit the Cuisinart® Oven Central® with baking pan if desired. Preheat to 350ºF with the top heater off.

2.  Whisk the egg, milk and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth; reserve.

3.  Combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a 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 pancakes will be tough.

4.  Once unit has preheated, fill a ¼  cup measuring cup halfway and pour batter evenly onto the hot pan. Repeat to have 4 pancakes. Cook pancakes until bubbles form, about 2 to 3 minutes; flip and cook until done, about 1 to 2 minutes longer.

5.  As you finish each batch of pancakes, keep them warm by placing them on a baking sheet and in a traditional oven set to low (200ºF). Repeat until all the batter is used.

6.  Transfer to warm plates to serve.
