1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 mashed banana, chocolate chips (optional)
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Make a well in the center of mixture and set aside.
Combine the egg, milk, and oil; add egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture.
Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy); add additional milk to thin batter if necessary.
For standard-sized pancakes (the ones I made), pour or spread about 1/4 cup of batter into a 3-inch circle onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or frying pan.
Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry.
