Gma? What does that mean? It is short for GRANDMA! Some time ago we got lazy in our typing messages back and forth we that shortened grandma and grandpa to gma and gpa....it stuck. Even the grandkids call them that!
These are the pancakes my mom has been making since I was little kid. She always made shaped pancakes for my sister and I. This is a thinner batter so it was easy to do. At the end of cooking she always made the 50 cent size pancakes and even if we had already had enough pancakes we always had room for those. Now she makes these pancakes with my daughter and my niece. The fun part now is that she lets them add coloring. So grandpa has eaten purple, pink, green, and sometimes blue pancakes!
Gma's Featherlight Pancakes1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons oil
Mix together dry ingredients.
In separate bowl mix together wet ingredients.
Add dry to wet and mix with a whisk until smooth.
Heat griddle until warm. You can add your batter to a condiment bottle and make shapes or spread the batter around with the back of a spoon.
Let the outline cook a little bit and then fill in the middle.
Your inner part will be lighter and mine would have if I had let the outline cook just a wee bit longer.
Cook until light brown on the underside and the bubbles on top pop.
Gently flip and watch them rise!! Cook until light brown and cooked all the way through.
These are the lightest fluffiest pancakes you will ever eat!!
