Breakfast squares

I found this wonderful new way of doing pancakes. No flipping pancakes on the griddle here. Just mix up the batter and bake in the oven. How easy is that? I adapted it from here.

3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg
1 tablespoon sugar
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350. 
  2. Grease a 8x8 baking dish.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the milk, egg, and  melted butter.
  4. Add sugar and gradually beat in the flour. 
  5. Stir in the baking powder and salt. 
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes. Top with butter and syrup.  Servers 4-6.
Tip: you can easily double the and put it in a 9x13 inch pan. It would make a nice brunch.
