Pancakes. Who doesn't love them? Hot, steaming, right off the griddle, doused in syrup and butter. What could be more delicious?
Meanwhile heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Brush the skill with oil.
Ladle batter in scant 1/4 cupfuls into the skillet, taking care not to crowd them. When the underside of the pancakes is nicely browned and the top starts to bubble and looks set around the edges, 2 to 3 minutes, flip them. Cook until the second side has browned. 1 to 2 minutes more.
Serve warm, with syrup and and fruit and whipped cream and butter. Lots of butter.
