In a medium bowl, sift and mix the dry ingredients together. In a small bowl, combine the egg, oil, and milk, and mix thoroughly. Add liquid to dry ingredients all at once. Stir batter quickly and only till dry ingredients are moistened. (Batter should be lumpy.)

Use 1/4-cup measure to pour batter onto heated, oiled skillet. Bake 2 minutes, 20 seconds first side. Turn and bake 1 minute, 40 seconds on the other side (4 minutes altogether). Keep warm in oven until batter is used up.
