Basic Pancakes
Recipe type: Breakfast
My kids love pancakes. The topping options are endless, but you need to start with the basic pancake. This is a simple 'go to' recipe for Basic Pancakes.
  • 1½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1½ cups Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Canola Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  1. Heat a skillet on medium to medium low heat.
  2. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until mixed.
  3. On the heated skillet, pour ¼ cup of pancake batter for each pancake. After about 1 to 1½ minutes you will notice the edges of the pancakes getting firm, and bubbles forming on the top of the pancakes. Turn the pancakes and continue to cook for another 1½ - 2 minutes. You can lightly press on top of the pancakes and if it bounces back without leaving an indent, it is done.
  4. I use a non-stick skillet and I don't add oil or butter to my pan first.
  5. I get about 12 pancakes per batch.
