Martha's Perfect Pancakes

Recipe by Loves-2-Cook
READY IN: 25mins


  • 1
    cup milk
  • 3
    tablespoons melted butter (I just use canola oil, easier than measuring & melting butter)
  • 1 12
  • 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!
