Pancakes From Scratch


Easy Pancakes from Scratch

Who doesn’t love a big ole stack of buttery, gooey pancakes?  I have been making this recipe for several years now, and I will never go back to the boxed pancake mix again.  In fact, the ingredients have been in my head for so long that I don’t remember the original source.  These cakes are easy, convenient, inexpensive, and really good.   I bet you have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now.


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

3 tablespoons melted butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the dry ingredients.  Make a well and add the milk, egg, butter, and vanilla.  Mix till combined.  Some lumps might still be there.  Don’t over mix.

Cook on a heated griddle by adding 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake.  When bubbles appear, flip.


I like to add some chopped banana (not too ripe) and shredded coconut to give them a tropical flair.  It’s the best way to eat a pancake.

Take care!
