The Critical Mom's Apple Pancakes

This is a good one for weekend mornings.

You will need:  flour, baking powder, salt, two eggs, butter, milk, and apples.

In a large bowl mix two cups (the size of coffee mugs) of plain white flour.  (You can also use whole wheat flour, but the pancakes will have a heavier quality) plus a teaspoon of baking powder and a half teaspoon of salt.  To the mixture add:  two eggs, two cups of milk, and about three tablespoons of melted butter.  Mix well with a whisk or spoon--you don't need an electric mixer.  Set aside the bowl.  Get out a large frying pan or skillet and heat vegetable or corn oil in it.  Wash an apple and cut thin slices right into the pan.  You don't need to peel it--just wash it.  Pour in a ladle of pancake mixture and cook at moderate heat until the pancake begins to bubble.  Flip it over and cook a little more.  My children like pancakes really golden-brown but some may prefer them less well done.  Serve with maple syrup or powdered sugar.

P.S. If you prefer the flat, European variety of pancake, just leave out the baking powder.  I like them fluffy.
