The Best Pancakes

My favorite meal of the day is breakfast; it always has been! There’s just something about weekend mornings- sleeping in and waking up to make a delicious breakfast, starting the day on a positive note. If Kalyn and I are looking for something indulgent & sweet, I typically whip up pancakes or crepes (I’ll save the crepe recipe for another post).


This is the best pancake recipe and it’s so easy. My recipe is written on one of those cards that is super worn looking; my grandmother passed it onto me and you can tell it was used over and over again in her kitchen. My dad used to tell me the simplest recipes are usually the best ones, and this is no exception.

What You Need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

a pinch of salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 1/4 cups milk

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 tablespoons butter, melted

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter; mix until smooth. Feel free to add berries, bananas, or chocolate chips if desired. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium heat. Scoop the batter onto the griddle using 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with butter and your favorite maple syrup.

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
