My son brought this recipe home from school after a study of "Tall Tales." Supposedly Paul Bunyan ate these! I did tweak the recipe a bit to fit our tastes. This is the only recipe I use for everyday pancakes! Serving size really depends on how big you make your pancakes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a smaller bowl, mix together the sugar, milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla.
  3. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, stirring until smooth.
  4. Let set for about 5-10 minutes for the flour to absorb the milk mixture.
  5. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto a preheated griddle (mine is set at 325 degrees).
  6. Brown on both sides and serve hot with butter, syrup, fresh berries, or roll them up and eat plain like my son does.
  7. I sometimes add chocolate chips to each pancake individually, after pouring onto the griddle. This keeps the chips from all clumping at the bottom of the bowl or someone not getting any chips in their pancake.

Great pancakes! They brown up nicely, and are fluffy yet satisfying. I made a half-batch using 25% whole wheat flour and got five pancakes. Next time I will use only half the vanilla called for. Thanks for posting this good recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2009.

We loved these. I made small silver dollar sized pancakes and got close to 20. The family gobbled them up and my husband said he loved what ever I did to change our normal pancake recipe. Your our new go to recipe for pancakes. Thanks for sharing!
