2.)  Preheat griddle or large skillet over medium heat.  When hot, grease griddle with butter.  Pour in 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto hot griddle, forming 4 pancakes.  Cook pancakes until bubbly in the center and dry around the edges, about 2 minutes.

3.)  Flip pancakes with a spatula and let cook for another 2 minutes on the other side until golden brown.  Remove to a serving plate and repeat with remaining batter.  Sprinkle with pecans, maple syrup and a dusting of powdered sugar.
