A few tips for making delicious pancakes every time:

  • Make sure that your griddle is preheated before adding the batter to it. This will help prevent sticking and burning.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup for pouring your batter onto the griddle. You can always add more batter if needed, but it’s hard to take some back off when you’ve poured too much.
  • Keep the heat at medium-low when making pancakes so they cook evenly and don’t burn on the bottom before cooking through in the middle.

Pancakes are a terrific breakfast idea. Making them from scratch is a rather simple process and they taste so much better than the store-bought ones. A recipe for pancakes is not difficult to find. But since there are plenty of different recipes, it can be difficult to figure out which one is the best one.


What makes this recipe the best choice?

Well, you don’t need any complicated ingredients to make these homemade pancakes. All you need is flour, sugar, milk, an egg, baking powder, salt and butter. This easy pancake recipe will make your kitchen smell like heaven and your family will love them! You can serve them with different toppings or even add some chocolate chips for extra flavor!

Prep time


Cooking time




Total time




  • 1 cup All-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)

  • 2 tablespoons Sugar

  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

  • 1 cup Milk

  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted, or vegetable oil

  • 1 large Egg

  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees; have a baking sheet or heatproof platter ready to keep cooked pancakes warm in the oven.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or oil), and egg. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not over mix; a few small lumps are fine).
  • Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium. Spray bottom of skillet with cooking spray.
  • For each pancake, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round (you should be able to fit 2 to 3 in a large skillet).
  • Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a baking sheet or platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm in oven. Continue with more cooking spray and remaining batter. (You’ll have 12 to 15 pancakes.) Serve warm.
  • Top with your favorite syrup and/or fresh fruit.
