Pour the dry ingredients over the wet and stir just until combined. There might still be some lumps.
Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes.
Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low heat. Spray it lightly with cooking spray or lightly butter it.
Pour ¼ cups of batter onto the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes until bubbles start to form around the edges of the pancake.
