A simple old fashioned pancake recipe. Good with syrup.

These pancakes ROCK! I doubled the recipe for 5 people and there wasn't a bite left. These are just so fluffy and every pancake was perfect. I added a bit of vanilla but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter and it is fantastic. Throw out the mixes, folks...these take just a few minutes to make and simply can't be beat. Love the use of real butter instead of margarine, too (margarine scares me!!!). Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat egg.
  2. Stir in butter and milk.
  3. Combine flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.
  4. Stir into egg mixture.
  5. Lightly grease a griddle.
  6. Heat griddle and drop about 1/4 cup batter onto griddle.
  7. Spread lightly with a spoon.
  8. When bubbles begin to appear around outside edge and break, turn with a spatula and cook on other side.
  9. (I also lift edge a little with the spatula and peek under it to see how it's doing.) You will need to adjust your heat so they do not cook too fast and burn.
  10. For me, the temperature usually ends up somewhere between medium and medium-high.
