Happy new year to all!
I used a recipe from the Joy of Cooking and thought it odd that it called for 1 3/4 tablespoons of baking powder. I read it three times to make sure I had it right – and forged ahead. The pancakes turned out great but apparently it was an error in my version of the book. It should have been teaspoons, not tablespoons according to the Joy of Cooking website.

About sixteen 4-inch pancakes
Here is the classic all-American pancake, the basis for seemingly endless variations.
Whisk together in a large bowl:
1½ cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1¾ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Combine in another bowl:
1½ cups milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
(1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract)
Mix the liquid ingredients quickly into the dry ingredients. Use 1⁄4 cup batter for each pancake.
