Pancakes - Plain, Simple, Good

I didn't catch any pictures of the pancakes before dinner so I'm sharing a photo of an early-blooming Iris. Do you ever make "breakfast for dinner?" It's fun to switch things up once in a while and these pancakes are a good option. The flavor was compared to the waffle cones made at ice cream stores. (I add vanilla to the recipe.)

1 C flour
1 T sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 egg
1 C milk
2 T corn oil
1/2 t vanilla*

Mix dry ingredients, then add in wet ingredients and mix with a whisk (don't over mix). Add a dollop of butter to pan on medium heat and use a measuring cup to drop a couple of pancakes into the pan. When bubbles appear on pancake flip it over to cook the other side. Repeat. Dollop of butter... etc. until you've used all of the batter. Keep the pancakes on a oven safe plate in a warm oven until the rest of the meal is ready.
