Homemade Pancakes from scratch


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg (optional. I tried with and without and didn’t find a difference)
  • 1.5 tablespoon melted butter (microwave for 20-25 secs)


  1. Mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  2. Stir milk and egg together.
  3. In the dry ingredients bowl, make a well in between and add the melted butter.
  4. Add milk and egg mixture.
  5. Use a wire whisk to stir everything together. It may be lumpy.
  6. On an electric griddle spray some vegetable oil and heat it over medium-high heat.
  7. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using 1/4 cup for each pancake.
  8. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes, until lightly golden brown. The way to know whether a side is done is to see bubbles popping up.
  9. Serve with fruits and maple syrup.  (I use this one)

**If you do not have an electric griddle you can use any nonstick pan as well.
