I tried a simple recipe that I found at allrecipes.com for pancakes.
The recipe is included below although I changed one measure — the salt. The original recipe says add 1 teaspoon salt but I found that one teaspoon is too much. I’d suggest trying 1/2 teaspoon salt and if you want a little more flavor add a wee bit of vanilla.
This recipe is so simple and makes quite a few pancakes so I suggest you make a large batch of the recipe and then put some away in a container for future use. No need to go out and buy already made pancake mixes.

These are fluffy and you can add other ingredients like mashed bananas, blueberries or thinly sliced applies.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well (hole) in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter. Mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. (I used butter but I’m sure a non-stick spray will work as well.) Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.
I thought 1/4 cup was too little so I added more but the batter spread quickly so I’d stick with the 1/4 cup that it calls for.
