3 Reasons to make this Pancake Recipe
- this recipe uses simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
- in a few minutes, you’ll have a stack of DELICIOUS pancakes.

** 1 cup of flour measured weighs between 4 1/4 and about 5 oz. That is about 2 tablespoons difference.
Whether you scoop the flour into your measuring cup or scoop your measuring cup into the flour.
If that batter seems too thin after you cook one pancake and want the batter thicker, add a couple tablespoons up to 1/4 cup.
*the batter is a little thin, but rest assured that is what makes these pancakes light and fluffy.
But I would cook one pancake before adding more flour to be sure you want the batter heavier.
This pancake batter is thinner than a boxed pancake mix and has quite a bit of leavening in it to result in fluffy pancakes.
My kids make this recipe with no help, their pancakes come out just like mine, nice and fluffy. If you have trouble with the recipe, please make sure you re-read the recipe and measured properly.
Now for my tip on keeping my pancakes warm until I’m ready to eat them…
A tortilla warmer…that’s right.
I use a tortilla warmer to keep my pancakes warm.
I love having breakfast with my family. What I don’t like is when I’m finally finished cooking and sit down to enjoy it, my food is cold. It shouldn’t be that way for the cook, should it? It used to happen often until I discovered that my tortilla warmer can keep my pancakes warm, and not just warm…HOT!
We eat a lot of pancakes and my large tortilla warmer holds 15 pancakes and that is how many pancakes my recipe makes. This tortilla warmer is under $6.00. I love using it for more than just keeping my tortillas warm and so will you.
I also line the tortilla warmer with parchment paper and keep quesadillas warm as well as scrambled eggs.
The possibilities are endless! That’s why I have two of them.
Happy Pancake Day!
These are my EVER POPULAR Pancake Cupcakes and if you have any doubts about making them don’t they are a WINNER!!!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ Tablespoons baking powder (be sure your baking powder is fresh)
- 1 large egg
- 2 cups milk
- 2 Tablespoons butter (room temp- soft or melted)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Mix all dry ingredients together
- Add egg, milk, butter, and vanilla, Whisk until all combined.
- Heat your frying pan, add a little butter,
- Portion out the batter for what will fit in your pan, don't overcrowd the pancakes or they will run together.
- I use a 3 Tablespoon scoop to make my pancakes and this recipe makes 15 pancakes of that
- Cook the pancakes over medium heat, pour the batter into a lightly oiled pan (or buttered) ), flip when bubbles appear on the edges of the pancakes
- Once flipped it only takes a minute or two to finish cooking.
- Place a lid on the pancakes after you flip them and they will produce fluffier pancakes.
