Warm, buttery and sweet smell flow through the air as hot pancakes are lifted from the pan. Butter is slowly sliding down the pancakes, leaving a light yellow trail behind it. The coolness of the syrup and heat of the pancake complemented one another perfectly and simply served to bring out the subtle flavor of the pancake itself. A thick coat of sweet maple syrup covering pancakes like a delightful tasty blanket that makes your mouth water with each bite.
A burst of raspberry gives even more refreshing flavor as it reaches your taste buds.
Either way, you call them; Pancakes, Hotcakes or American pancakes, these are fluffy and delicious and they certainly make one amazing start of the day.

In another bowl mix wet ingredients; eggs, vanilla, melted unsalted butter, and milk. Add wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined. It is alright it the better is a bit lumpy.
Brush nonstick saute pan or the griddle with oil or butter and drop about 1/3 cup or for large pancakes 1/2 cup of the batter on the hot griddle/skillet/nonstick pan. Allow pancakes to cook until golden brown and bubbles begin to form on the surface. Flip and continue to cook until golden on the second side and cooked through, about a minute or two per side.
