1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
toppings (optional) – powdered sugar, maple syrup, whipped cream, your favorite jam or jelly
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Mix all the ingredients together in a medium size bowl. Whisk or use electric mixer to make sure the batter is smooth and has no lumps. Set aside.
Spray a cast iron or oven-safe pan with non-stick spray. Heat the pan in the oven for 10 minutes.
Whisk or stir the batter one more time, then pour into hot pan. Put the pan back into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden on top.
Remove pan from oven and let cool for about 5 minute. Cut and serve with your favorite topping.
