these are the most perfect pancakes ever! First, some tips – when melting butter I never melt all that the recipe calls for. I typically reserve about a third and stir that in after the two thirds has melted. That brings the temperature down, and I'm not stuck waiting for the butter to cool. Second, I think a lot of people that come to sites like this are new to cooking. If so, I suggest you follow the recipe exactly as written the first time you make it. The reason this recipe calls for 3 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder is so that the pancakes are light and airy. They were! Sifting the dry ingredients is also important. Again, directed at the new cooks, lightly beat the egg, add it to the milk, then add that to the cooled to room temp butter, then follow the recipe directions. , This is really important – do not overmix the batter! Remixing will leave you with flat, tough pancakes. After it is mixed, those "lumps "are more likely air, which is a good thing. I added about a half teaspoon vanilla, but it certainly is not necessary. These are delicious, and come out perfectly if you follow the recipe the way it is written
