A basic everyday pancake that is very light and tender.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sift dry ingredients into medium bowl.
  2. Mix egg, oil, and buttermilk together and add to dry ingredients.
  3. Stir only until dry ingredients have disappeared.
  4. Preheat lightly coated griddle or skillet over medium heat (If a non-stick pan use Pam or small amount of vegetable oil) --
  5. If you are using an electric griddle, set temperature to 360-365°F.
  6. Test by adding a few drops of water on hot pan -- When the drops start to "dance" on the griddle it is time to cook.
  7. For each pancake pour about a 1/4 cup of batter onto a hot griddle.
  8. Cook on first side until bubbles that form begin to pop and edges look dry.
  9. With a spatula, turn and cook until second side is rich golden brown. Cook on hot griddle.
  10. Serve with Blueberry Sauce and dollop of sour cream or lemon yogurt.

This is an excellent homemade pancake recipe. They turned out as promised, light and tender. My family was sure impressed, which makes me look good ;) I served with blueberry syrup. YUM YUM!! Thanks for the recipe.

Fabulous! They were so light that two of us ate the entire batch and neither of us feels overstuffed, just pleasantly satisfied. I used low-fat buttermilk in the batter and served them with pure maple syrup.

These were terrific. I loved them and so did my children. I made them for dinner while my husband was at an evening meeting. YUM. I used an old salt shaker and put cinnamon and sugar in it and then after I made the cakes on the griddle, I sprinkled a little of the cinnamon and sugar mixture on the cakes. It added a nice flavor and then instead of syrup we used cinnamon and sugar or apple butter to top them with. Wonderful and will definitly will be making them again and again.
