The Bisquick post was in thanks to my friend Vanda who was commenting that she was craving pancakes but could get Bisquick in the UK.

So here's my pancake recipe for her. It's from College Cuisine by Leila Peitosaari. It's really one of the better student cookbooks that I found. Common, easy to find, relatively inexpensive.


1 c all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp baking power
1 large egg
1 cup milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil

In medium bowl, mix flour with sugar and baking powder. Make a well in the center for the dry ingredients and add egg, milk and oil in it. Stir with a wire whisk until batter is smooth. Heat nonstick frying pan over high heat for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium high and grease if necessary. Drop the batter in pan by large spoonfuls. Cook until golden brown underneath, flip over and cook the other side. Eat hot.
