Electric Skillet Pancakes

The sweet smell of these pancakes is what I woke up to nearly every weekend in my childhood. Now my kids ask for Grandma's pancakes every time they head over to her house for a visit. Grandma's pancake recipe is very simple to make. They turn out golden and fluffy when cooked in an electric skillet.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 1/4 cups milk (or add enough to reach desired consistency)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil (for frying)

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, almond extract and milk.
  • Add 1 tablespoon canola oil to the skillet. Heat electric skillet to 350°F/175°C.
  • Blend the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients using a wired whisk or fork. My personal preference is to eliminate any lumps in the batter but it is okay to leave some if you desire, to avoid over-mixing.
  • Pour roughly ⅓ cup of the batter onto the skillet, leaving 1 ½” of space in between pancakes to leave room for flipping. You may be able to cook 1 to 3 pancakes at a time, depending on the size of your electric skillet.
  • Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake. Flip the pancake to cook the other side until golden, approximately 1 minute.
  • Transfer to plate or heated tray to keep warm.
  • Continue cooking the remaining batter. Serve with desired syrup and toppings. One of my favorite toppings for pancakes is sour cream and maple syrup.
