I've continued the tradition of Saturday morning pancakes. This A.M. I made them for my grandsons. The second batch was on the way when this picture was taken!

½ – ¾ cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon salt
Beat the milk, butter, and egg lightly in a mixing bowl. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt and add them all at once to the first mixture, stirring just enough to dampen the flour. (Add more milk if batter is too thick.) Lightly butter or grease your pan or griddle, and set over moderate heat until a few drops of cold water sprinkled on the pan sizzle. Bake until cakes are full of bubbles, then flip. Brown the other side and then enjoy!
Here's a great list of children's picture books about pancakes to share with your young pancake lovers.
