This recipe for pancakes is really easy to whip together. Mix together the first 4 ingredients and store for quick use later on (this is essentially homemade Bisquick). We often bring this camping with us, storing the wet and dry ingredients in separate containers, combining only when it's time to use.
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a large measuring cup, combine the remaining 3 wet ingredients and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing just to combine (the dough will be somewhat lumpy, but that's okay).
Preheat a large frying pan or griddle over medium heat. Melt a small amount of butter in the pan, and then cook pancakes until browned evenly on both sides. A good rule of thumb that I learned early on in my pancake making days - count the bubbles in the pancake dough. Once 10 or so have "popped" your pancake is ready to flip!
