If adding optional fruit, stir it in now just until combined.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray or cooking oil. I prefer oil for a crispier finish.

Pour 4 equal circles of batter onto the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the bottom is golden brown.
