My kids complained that the pancakes were not sweet enough (I thought they were great without sugar). Adding 1 Tablespoon of sugar got the thumbs up of approval from my kiddos.
In a skillet, on medium high heat, grease the pan and pour 2, 4 inch diameter pancakes at a time.
When the pancakes start to bubble and the bottoms are slightly brown (about 1-2 minutes depending on the heat setting of your stovetop), flip the pancakes and let them sit another 1-2 minutes.
You will want to grease the pan between every set of pancakes to keep them from sticking to the pan.
