This was a good starting point for pancake batter. These could have been fluffier (more baking powder) and needed a bit more flavor (buttermilk maybe?), but they were good, basic pancakes. I tend to compare pancakes to the best out there, IHOP Buttermilk Pancakes (http://www.recipezaar.com/Ihop-Buttermilk-Pancakes-98415) to see how they compare. With a few minor adjustments, I think these could be just as good! Thanks! Made for My-3-Chefs in Fall 08.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 12 teaspoons baking powder
  • 34 teaspoon salt
  • 4 12 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 34-2 cups milk (depending on how thick you like your pancakes)
  • 4 12 tablespoons oil
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Mix dry ingredients together.
  2. In seperate bowl mix wet ingredients.
  3. Add wet ingredients to the dry. Stir quickly until just mixed and batter lumpy.
  4. Drop on a hot griddle.
  5. Try adding strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries to the batter, but do not over stir.
  6. I also sometimes will add a scoop of protein powder to my dry ingredients. You will need to add a little more milk to the recipe if you do.
