Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Combine bowls. Adjust the thickness of the batter by adding a little water or a little flour if necessary. It will be thick and lumpy, but should be thin enough so that when you ladel it on to the griddle, it oozes into a disk about 1/4" thick.
Fry on griddle set to 350°F. It isn't necessary to butter the griddle, but doing so will give a slightly crispy, buttery edge. Fry one side until bubbles develop. Then flip once and fry until ready.
The maple syrup flavor is subtle, but Ulysses really loves it.
The above recipe serves about three people. It's slightly larger than the Basic Pancake recipe.
