We love pancakes. Rick always hated pre-made mixes for pancakes, so I made them homemade most every time. The recipe I use is from my red and white check cookbook that I have had for many, many years. The pages are well worn. 


I use an electric griddle similar to this one to make my pancakes on. It is a good investment, I use it for a lot of cooking.
  • 1cup all-purpose flour
  • 1tablespoon sugar
  • 2teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4teaspoon salt
  • 1beaten egg
  • 1cup milk
  • 2tablespoons cooking oil

1.In a medium mixing bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture; set aside.
2.In another medium mixing bowl combine the egg, milk, and cooking oil. Add egg mixture all at once to the dry mixture. Stir just till moistened (batter should be lumpy). {I always lightly beat the egg alone first, then with the other liquid ingredients then add to dry}
3.For standard-size pancakes, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. For dollar-size pancakes, pour about 1 tablespoon batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side or till pancakes are golden brown, turning to second sides when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm. Makes 8 to 10 standard-size (4-inch) or 36 dollar-size (2-inch) pancakes (8 servings).

I always us White Lily unbleached bread flour for this.  

I also sometimes use an equal amount (or double the amount) of melted butter instead of oil for my pancakes. I love the buttery flavor.

The other day I was on Pinterest, and I found a recipe for iHop pancakes. I will be trying it and will share it here. I haven't used it yet but may soon.
