You have found my best pancake recipe. Say goodbye to Aunt Jemima after you taste these babies. The family will be asking for pancakes from scratch for now on.
Homemade pancakes so fluffy and delicious - just add a bit of fruit (frozen blueberries are wonderful), for a real treat.

(frozen blueberries are wonderful), for a real treat. Or you can add
1/2 tsp of cinnamon and top them with apple pie filling. Yum.
If you want, mix up the dry ingredients in advance and give as a gift with instructions. You can also store this so on the weekends it's "almost" ready to go. Great way to save money; now on to my easy pancake recipe.
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE PANCAKES FROM SCRATCH
1 cup all purpose flour
1 TBS granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
3 TBS butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl and set aside. Whisk the egg into with the milk then add the cooled melted butter. Stir this wet mixture in with the dry ingredients until just combined. Do not over-stir.
Heat up a pan to medium and add some butter (or oil) after the pan is hot. To make a test pancake: add 1 tablespoon of the batter into the hot pan. When browned on one side, flip over. Now you are ready to make regular sized pancakes. Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the hot pan after it has been sprayed with oil. When bubbles form on the top, flip it over. Repeat until batter is gone.
I really enjoy the strawberry jam instead of syrup and have been eating them this way for years. When I use a little bit of almond extract and cook them in butter - I just eat them plain or sprinkled with powdered sugar, they are that good. Enjoy.
You can add:
Use the recipe above and follow the directions until it is time to test with the first pancake. Melt some butter into the pan.
Pour one tablespoon of batter at a time into the pan and when the edges begin to harden, flip over with a fork. It only takes a minute or two on each side to cook. Remove from the pan and place in a bowl. Drizzle with syrup. Dig in!
Again, follow the instructions above on making the batter. Melt some butter in a heated pan and pour approximately 1 cup batter into the pan. Begin to mix it around like you would making scrambled eggs. Place on a plate and drizzle with syrup or sprinkle with powdered sugar. Saved you some time didn't it?
