Ready In:
12 pancakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter (I just use canola oil, easier than measuring & melting butter)
  • 1 12 cups self rising flour
  • 2 -3 tablespoons sugar (I usually add double)


  • Heat griddle or large skillet to medium-high heat (375 degrees F.). Grease lightly with oil.
  • In medium bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and melted butter; mix well. Add all remaining ingredients; stir just until large lumps disappear.
  • For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbles begin to break on surface. Turn; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
  • My tips: I use a skillet and heat between med-low to medium. I think it makes no difference in which order the ingredients are added and mixed. I double the recipe in order to have enough to feed my bunch. If you don't have self rising flour you can make it by adding 1 teaspoon baking powder & 1/4 teaspoons salt to every cup of all purpose flour used in your recipe. This was the first homemade mix I ever tried. I had always made from a box. I have yet to find a homemade recipe for pancakes that measure up to this one. Hope you enjoy them!

  1. Just made them today they were some of the best pancakes ever. I need more of Marthas recipes.
  2. Made these today and they were super nice! I added 1/2 tsp of baking powder to give it extra fluff. This recipe is a keeper!
  3. These are great! let's you have some real pancakes. Today, we made them with canola and not butter, but it made them more dense. So I think we will just take the time to melt the butter. But this is definitely our go-to recipe! Thanks!
  4. This is the Best Ever recipe for pancakes ever.<br/><br/>Thank you very much for your recipe.
  5. WOW! These pancakes were AMAZING! I followed the recipe exactly the way it is, but when it came for the sugar I was out of regular so I substituted dark brown sugar. I am not the best when it comes to cooking pancakes, but these were PHENOMENAL!


  1. Used same recipe but added. 1 tsp. Vanilla extract (real) 1/3 cup sugar I'm always trying different things here and there but I seem to like this recipe the best.
