  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Toppings of choice – Butter, maple syrup/honey, icing sugar, jam or preserve, whipped cream, berries, etc.



Step 1

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.

Step 2

In a second medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter or oil, and egg. Add dry ingredients to your wet mixture and mix well. Try not to overmix.

Step 3

Heat a large non-stick pan on medium and add 1 teaspoon of oil to your pan.

Step 4

Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of pancake batter into your heated non-stick pan for each pancake. You should be able to fit about 3 pancakes in a large pan.

Step 5

Cook until the surface of your pancakes bubble, which usually takes 1 to 2 minutes, and proceed to flip the pancakes with a spatula. Cook the other side for another 1 to 2 minutes. Once cooked, place your pancakes onto a platter or serving plates. You can cover cooked pancakes with foil to keep them warm. Once all your pancakes are cooked you can serve them warm with the delicious toppings of your choice!
