  2. Combine egg and next 4 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring well, add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup batter for each pancake onto a hot, lightly greased griddle. Cook pancakes until tops are covered with bubbles and edges appear cooked, turn and cook other side. Serve pancakes with warm maple syrup and, if desired, bacon.
