~ Measuring Spoon ~ ¼ Teaspoons Salt
~ Serves 4 ~ 1 Cup Milk

How to Make:
1.) Break egg into bowl and beat with either a whisk or a fork for one minute.
2.) Mix all dry ingredients in a large spouted bowl.
3.) Pour egg into dry ingredients and blend together.
4.) Add milk and 2 tablespoons margarine and beat until batter is smooth (batter should be thin enough to pour easily ~ if batter is too thick add a little milk ~ if batter is too thin add a little flour)
5.) Lightly grease frying pan with 1 tablespoon of margarine.
6.) Heat pan over low heat to the slow count of 20.
7.) When pan is hot, pour a little (like a half of a cup) of the batter into it.
8.) It will spread to form a round flat cake.
9.) When the top of the cake is covered with approximately 12 bubbles (and the edges look slightly dry) use a pan cake turner to turn the pan cake and brown the other side.
*Note: ~ Browning the second side goes a little more quickly than the first side
~ You can make variations of this recipe by adding chocolate chips or applesauce to the batter, or add cheese or jam after they are cooked!
