My mom use to make these all the time for us and I just thought I'd share this wonderful recipe.
*To make sour milk~ pour 1 tsp of white vinegar into a cup of regular milk and use as directed.
Sift flour, measure, resift twice with the next 4 ingredients (old cookbook directions, who does this anyway?), the last time into a 2-qt mixing bowl. Beat egg, stir in milk, add all at once to flour mixture. Beat with egg beater until just smooth, add shortening and beat until blended.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto ungreased (I use a little melted butter) moderately hot griddle. Bake until golden brown on both sides. I flip when I see the edges starting to dry and bubbles on the tops. Serve with butter and syrup.
I sometime sprinkle some blueberries or some chopped up banana right after I pour the batter in the pan.
