Old Fashioned Pancakes from Scratch

What a breakfast dilemma! No fruit, no cereal, only one egg, very little granola, but plenty of bread and milk. Since we only had 1 egg, french toast was not an option. We were also out of our trusty pancake mix, but we had some real maple syrup a friend brought down from Canada. Time to go shopping, but in the meantime we need something to eat for breakfast with our coffee. The only option when this happens is to go back to basics and make our own pancake batter.

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and melted butter.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • Gradually pour in the liquid, and mix until smooth.
  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium heat.
  • Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake.
  • Brown on both sides and serve hot.
I had forgotten how easy this recipe is, and the finished product is better than anything I've ever tasted from a packaged, and processed, pancake mix.

Yield: 8-10
