Put these ingredients in a blender in the order I have written them. If you don't have a blender, use a big bowl: 2 large eggs 2 tablespoons cooking oil 2 cups BUTTERMILK 2 teaspoons of baking POWDER 2 tablespoons of sugar 1/2 cup of water 2 cups of SELF RISING flour
Turn on blender and mix well or mix well in bowl. Let set for 5 minutes. Stir . Make your pancakes on Pam sprayed griddle. Turn over when bubbles show on the top . My recipe . The best pancakes EVER.
1. Electric skillet, NOT stove-top. Skillet must be *level* - test with butter after skillet heats to 275. Do not skimp on the butter if the skillet isn't non-stick...use it freely to avoid sticking. 2. Pancake mix - made-from-scratch takes 10 times longer and ain't worth it. 3. Sift pancake mix once (if you can) onto wax paper before measuring. 4. Combine mix with liquid ingredients as per box instructions SLOWLY...just a little bit at a time will avoid clumping. 5. Pour pancake batter from center - do not move pouring container around. If the skillet is level (step 1) the pancakes will be perfectly round. 6. Watch for bubbles in the pancakes on the skillet - when they appear, flip 'em. 7. Wait for 2 minutes, then take off skillet. Best to put on a plate that will be eaten immediately. If not, put in a dish that can be kept warm in the oven (set at 200) 8. Butter, cover with maple syrup, and die from heavenly bliss!

Not all pancake mixes in a box are the same try a few and find your favorites. My favorite one you just add water. Also cook slowly on a medium hot griddle to hot it will burn the out side and raw inside. Flip only once and only when the top is bubbly and dry. I agree with the statement do not over mix small lumps are good to have in the batter. Hungry Jack "Just add water" is my families favorite.
Don't over beat them! Small lumps are good, they will cook out! Gently stir, don't whip! I like to steal the idea from the back of the Bisquick box for light and fluffy pancakes...add baking soda, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla extract....OMG! So good!
