Mix up the dry ingredients with a whisk (don't use an electric mixer). If dairy is OK you can add 2/3 c powdered milk or just use milk instead of water. Mix in the wet ingredients just until moistened. Use 1/4 c batter per pancake. I cook them on a non-stick griddle on my gas stove on medium. I add apple chunks or frozen blueberries while they're cooking to accomodate my picky eaters. Makes 11-12 4" pancakes.
