1½ cups all-purpose flour
2½ teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup lowfat milk, 1%
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Blend flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a mixer or with a wire whip.
- In a separate bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla, and vegetable oil. Stir to mix.
- Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Stir to mix for about 30 seconds. The batter will be lumpy. DO NOT OVERMIX.
- Lightly grease or spray (with olive oil cooking spray) a griddle or heavy frying pan. Heat.
- Portion pancake batter with a 1/4 cup dry measuring
cup filled about 3/4 full (should be 3 1/3 Tbsp). Pour so that pancakes
do not touch.
- Cook until the surface of the pancakes is covered
with bubbles and the bottom side is lightly browned. Turn and cook
until lightly browned on the other side.
- Serve immediately or reheat in a covered pan in the oven.
To reheat a pan full of pancakes, place covered pan in a 350° F oven for about 5 minutes.

What are RDAs and DRIs?From 1941 to 1989, the Institute of Medicine's FNB (Food
and Nutrition Board) released the RDAs (Recommended Dietary
Allowances). The RDAs are a single set of nutrient specific values.
deliberations in the mid-1990's, the FNB decided to replace this single
set of values with multiple sets of values, including: Estimated
Requirements (EAR), Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA), Adequate
Intakes (AI), and Tolerable Upper Intake Levels (UL) for designated age
groups, physiologic states (for example, pregnancy), and by sex. These
values are collectively referred to as the Dietary Reference Intakes,
