  1. Preheat a non-stick or lightly oiled griddle or skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine first four ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine water, milk, vanilla, and maple syrup. Add dry ingredient to the wet ingredients. Stir just until all dry bits of flour disappear.
