Bama's Quick Pancakes

Recipe by bama jr.
READY IN: 4mins




  • Place flour, sugar, oil, and egg in a bowl. Whisk in milk until smooth.
  • Pre-heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil or grease skillet with vegetable shortening.
  • Test skillet by using a small amount of batter. It should gently puff up after about 30 seconds.
  • Discard test piece and ladle about 1/2 cup batter into skillet.
  • I like to think that I am actually baking on top of the stove. If the skillet is too hot, the outside will burn before the middle is done enough to turn.
  • Let cook until bubbly on top and under side is a golden brown. flip and cook till golden brown.
  • I have fun with this by making my childrens initials (thick block style letters). Also, you can drizzle a design on the hot skillet and then ladle pancake batter over this. When flipped, the drizzle design will show up. You can put the batter in a squeeze bottle to really be precise. This really delights small children and lets your 'almost grown' teen-agers know that they will always be your babies.
