Heat pancake griddle to 375° F. Lightly grease griddle.
Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Do not overmix. Let batter stand for 2 minutes.
Pour slightly less than ¼ cups batter per pancake onto griddle.
Cook 1 to 1 ½ minutes per side. For light and fluffy pancakes, flip only once
when tops bubble and bottoms are golden brown.
Serve drizzled with maple syrup and topped with whipped cream, if desired.
