American Pancakes

Breakfast time! What is the easiest, fastest home made breakfast? Pancakes. I have to admit that I normally make crêpes (the thin pancakes) in the evening, but for breakfast I think the American pancakes are much better.
While they cook, you can prepare a cuppa and get the marmalade and everything else ready to enjoy breakfast.
This batter is not too sweet so you can make bacon and eggs to go with the pancakes but I've had mine with strawberry jam and it was delicious. What is your favourite topping?

135gr plain flour (sifted)
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
130 ml milk
1 egg
2tbsp melted butter

Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together. In another bowl, beat the egg and milk.
Create a well in the centre of the dry ingredients: add the milk & egg mix + melted butter. Beat the mix until you get a soft batter (it should be thick though). Cook the pancakes on a medium heated pan. Eat them warm.
