Pancakes from Scratch Are Fun and Easy

Pancakes from scratch are fun and easy. In your opinion, what’s the best pancake recipe?


I haven’t used a pancake recipe for years. In fact, pancakes don’t even need exact measurements. A little more or a little less of this or that and homemade pancake recipes always seem to taste great no matter what. You really don’t need pancake recipies.

As a rule of thumb I remember ratios close to these. You can double, triple, quadruple the ingredients if you wish. Just keep the ratios approximately the same.

1 egg
1 cup flour
1 cup milk (or water, or buttermilk)
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons oil or melted butter (1/8 cup)

Mix all ingredients together; the order is not so important. Stir thoroughly; a few lumps don’t seem to matter. When the mixture is smooth, pour onto a heated griddle.

Pancakes turn best if the griddle is greased with a dab of butter or a few drops of cooking oil. How hot should the griddle be? You can test it by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If the droplets “skitter”, the griddle is just about right.

Pancakes should be turned when each cake is full of bubbles. Flip them over and bake until each side is golden brown and the batter is fully cooked inside.

When making pancakes from scratch, you can be as creative as you want. Try adding applesauce to the batter. Or try ham specks or cheese curds or any kind of berries. Experiment and develop your own family favorites.

At our house we love to pile on creative toppings. Sour cream is great. Berries can’t be beat. Buttery syrup is always good. Have you tried nuts or ice cream? The skies the limit! Have fun!
