Vanilla Silver Dollar Pancakes

I remember first eating silver dollar pancake while traveling across county as a young child. Just about every summer our family would either get on a train or drive from California to Michigan. Sometimes it would be all of us but mostly it was my Dad, an Aunt, me and two younger brothers. Silver Dollars Pancakes were always a special treat when we traveled by car as we stopped at cafes in the midwest. You make a thicker batter than regular pancakes and make them only three inches diameter.

1 cup flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar (you could use vanilla sugar)
1 egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
cut up fruit
Sweeten yogurt or whipped cream

Use you favorite pan to make pancakes with. I have a griddle that goes across two burners.

Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Mix in the sugar. In a separate bowl beat the egg, extract and milk. Pour in the melted butter. Mix together. Make a well in the flour mixture and add the milk mixture gradually to form a batter. Drop 2 tablespoons batter on grill and cook 3-4 minutes on each side. You can tell the pancake are ready to flip when they start to bubble and seem set. To serve layer up with fruit and powdered sugar. You can also use yogurt and whipped cream.
