In memory of Ralph

Well anyone who remembers Ralph's pancakes,  made in an outdoor kitchen in a clean 5 gallon pail and mixed with a giant beater attached to a construction drill  will by now be sighing with nostalgia for fine times gone by. Alas I  could never duplicate the quality. Today I came close.
This recipe makes 10 small pancakes. About 3 people.
So then for every 10 pancakes you want to produce:
In  a bowl preferably with a pouring spout

1 1/4 cup flour
1 T sugar
1 T baking powder, level
A bit of salt

Mix it up and pour in
1 1/4 c milk
1 egg
2 T oil

Whisk it together. Lumps are ok.

Fry on greased griddle.

Cook the pancakes on medium heat (you will have to play with temperature adjustments until you get it right) on the first side until the bubbles break and hold little holes in the batter all around the edges. Then flip it before it gets too brown.  They are done when you tap the center gently with your finger and it springs back. Great with pancake syrup and even better with homemade raspberry jam.  Not rocket science.  Follow the instructions on the pectin box.  And if looking to save money buy no name.  Just as good as Certo.
