A great, simple, no-fail pancake recipe for super fluffy homemade pancakes.

Ingredients For Easy Homemade Pancakes

  • Flour – We used all-purpose flour and have not tried any other flours with this recipe.
  • Baking powder – Makes those pancakes that rise!
  • Sugar – We used granulated sugar.
  • Salt – Balances the sweetness and brings out the flavor.
  • Egg – Adds structure, flavor, and fluffiness.
  • Milk – We used regular 2% milk, but buttermilk would be great too.
  • Butter – Make sure it’s melted, plus additional butter for the skillet or griddle you are cooking the pancakes in.

How To Make Homemade Pancakes

Mix Dry Ingredients – Combine and sift all dry ingredients in a bowl

Mix Wet Ingredients –  In a different bowl beat egg until light and fluffy. Add 1 c. milk and melted butter to bowl. Stir to combine.

Combine Ingredients – Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just a few small lumps are left. The lumps will break up a bit if you let the batter sit as you heat the griddle. If you feel the batter is to thick add remaining milk to batter and stir to combine. Do not over mix!

Cook – Heat griddle or skillet over medium to low heat. Melt butter and ladle about 1/4 c. batter into skillet. When bubbles form on top of pancake flip and brown the other side. Keep the heat low and cook them slow to get them perfect.
