Perfect Pancakes

5 from 4 reviews

Ingredients

Units
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Make a “volcano” well in the middle (as my son calls it) and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix with a fork or whisk until smooth.
  3. Heat a griddle or large pan over medium high heat (I set my griddle at 300-350 F). Pour or scoop ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form to flip. Brown on the other side and serve with butter and blueberry syrup.

Notes

100% whole wheat – add an additional teaspoon of baking powder + 1 Tablespoon milk.
50% whole wheat – add ½ teaspoon baking powder.
¼ cup ground flax – remove ¼ cup flour + ½ teaspoon baking powder.
Add 1 mashed banana – no changes.
Add up to 1 cup blueberries or nuts – no changes.
