Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

This is such a lovely pancake recipe that we've made a few times over the years - it's my go-to when my daughter springs a pancake request on a Saturday or Sunday morning (and I'm in the mood to make them)!

They have a wonderful buttery flavor, just a touch of sweetness, and are so perfectly tender! They crisp up beautifully and though my teddy bear shaping skills won't win any awards, they certainly impress my 7-year old still - especially when I let her decorate her teddy bear with chocolate chips (and maybe a little bit of whipped cream)!

There's something pretty special about pancakes on the weekend. When we make them, we usually make a full breakfast - fried or scrambled eggs, some bacon or sausage links, and usually a bowl of chopped fresh fruit too. 

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 TBS white sugar
1 ¼ cups milk
1 egg
3 TBS butter, melted

  1. Preheat a griddle to about 325 degrees, and spray with nonstick cooking spray or spread with a little bit of butter.
  2. Melt the butter in a large bowl and then whisk in the egg, and milk until well blended. Add in the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Whisk until combined (it's ok for it to be a little lumpy, just make sure you don't have dry pockets of flour).
  3. When griddle is hot, pour the pancake mixture using a 1/4 or 1/3 cup measurer, or pour into your desired shapes! Cook until bubbles appear around the edges and the edges look dry, then flip and cook another minute or two on the other side.
  4. Serve with butter / syrup / whipped cream / chocolate chips / fruit, etc. as desired!
