"I developed this pancake recipe when we were short of syrup... it has its own distinct sweetness that is great with or without syrup... I love it with some whip cream and strawberries. It is my most requested recipe. It's great because I constantly have slumber parties so I mix up the dry ingredients ahead of time... add the eggs and milk and voila... done quick! I like to weigh my put both measurements. Enjoy!"

Ready In:
14 large pancakes




  • SIFT/STIR dry ingredients together COMPLETELY. (makes a difference).
  • Mix wet ingredients together.
  • Combine the two and mix well.
  • Cook on a hot griddle then flip when bubbles form.
  • This recipe produces nice, thick, fluffy pancakes.
  • Can be doubled, tripled etc.
  • **Make sure the baking powder is completely blended to avoid a "chemical" taste. Thx!
  • Note* (I have been known to substitute eggnog for the milk -- add vanilla, butter, or almond extract -- or add cinnamon, nutmeg, and or or pumpkin pie spice to make it fun).
  • ** Make sure your baking powder has been sifted or is not clumpy as this will affect the outcome.

    Every time I make these pancakes, everyone compliments "the chef". Easy to make and perfect results. Everyone insists that they are lighter than pancakes made from a mix. I've made these about 8 times now, and I still get compliments like it's the first time I have made them. Thanks for the recipe.

    Seemed a bit chemically tasting to me, probably from the high amount of baking powder. It is an okay recipe and definitely makes very fluffy, tall pancakes - but won't be using it again.

    Great pancakes. I used also Splenda but only 1/2 cup. I added a little bit more milk. They are very thick which I like. Thanks Pink Box :) Made for Cookbook tag game

    These are the best pancakes I have ever made! I used splenda instead of sugar as my boyfriend is a diabetic and they turned out perfect and he loved them....Thank You for a great easy recipe I will only use this one from now on...

    Quick as a flash, these this great tasting breakfast plate came together & we were very satisfied with the results ~ Very fluffy, thick & tasty, & wonderful both with some white corn syrup (I do love that stuff on pancakes) as well as with some thick homemade cherry sauce we still had in the frig! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef event]
