This might seem like a classic pancake recipe, but mind you, it's actually the ultimate! What makes this recipe so good? A few tablespoons of sugar and splash of vanilla add the perfect amount of sweetness, but not too much, so you can still pour maple syrup over these fluffy hot cakes. Made in one bowl and ready in just 20 minutes, these golden stacks of pancakes could be on your breakfast table this morning.
