These pancakes are a staple to my families breakfast menu. We have them weekly! I try to add a little variety by adding chocolate chips or making them different sizes. I’ve even tried my hands at shapes and letters for the different holidays/seasons.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! The original recipe is from Betty Crocker, but I have tweaked it a bit.
- 1 egg
- 1 cup flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 TBsp sugar
- 2 TBsp oil
- 1 TBsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
Beat egg in medium bowl with whisk until fluffy. Beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth. For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 to 2 tablespoons milk.
Heat griddle or skillet over low to medium heat or to about 325 degrees F. Grease griddle with butter if necessary.
For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook pancake until bubbly on top, puffed and dry around edges. Turn and cook other side until golden brown.
Makes about 8 4-inch pancakes.
