Pancakes from scratch are easy – certainly not any harder than measuring just a couple of ingredients and mixing – isn’t that what we have to do with a box mix? Measure and mix?
Pancakes from Scratch – the Real Deal!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla – optional.
Whisk in melted butter, egg, milk and vanilla until combined. Let batter rest for a few minutes.
Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly oil skillet or griddle. Pour batter into the hot skillet / griddle, about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbles appear on the sides and center of each pancake. Gently flip and cook until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Do not flatten with spatula while cooking!
Makes 12 pancakes.
