My recipe is similar to Gadzook's, but is a tad difference, as you will see. Both recipes will deliver light pancakes. I changed mine because the oil used in them makes them supremely tender and very moist, without being gooey.
Goodweed's World Famous Pancakes:
1 cup All Purpose flour (white or whole wheat)
1 tbs. double acting baking powder (I like Clabber Girl brand)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbs. sugar (I use Splenda instead of sugar as I'm diabetic).
1 extra-large egg
3/4 cup milk
3 tbs. cooking oil
Whisk until all ingredients are wet. Leave small lumps in batter to make sure you don't over-mix. Place three tbs. batter on lightly oiled, hot skillet for each pancake (skillet is hot when drops of water skitter accross the pan surface) and cook over medium heat. Carefully flip when bubbles begin to appear on the top. Cook for about two more minutes. Serve immediately with your favorite syrup, jam, jelly, or honey. You can even dust them with powdered sugar if you like. Enjoy.
