Weekends are made for breakfasts. I just love Saturday mornings with a cup of coffee and cooking up something I know that my family will love and that we can share around the breakfast table. Whether it’s waffles or overnight breakfast casserole, they’re always happy! Another family favorite is my Homemade Pancakes made from scratch! No box mixes in our house! Sure, it seems convenient to open a box from the store but I promise it’s no more work to make them yourself with ingredients in your pantry!
These delicious, light and fluffy homemade pancakes are easy to make and are packed full of flavor! All mixed in one mixing bowl, you won’t have several dishes to clean up after. I love that this recipe makes extra to keep on hand for the week. I just pop them in the freezer and pull one out and microwave as many as I need. It’s super easy for on the go mornings!
Making your own homemade pancakes allows you to control what goes in. No ingredients you can’t pronounce or preservatives you don’t need. Just good ingredients like flour, butter, baking powder, milk and eggs.
To make these pancakes a little healthier, use whole wheat flour or do half white flour and half whole wheat. I try to go the healthy route most of the time. Also, top with REAL butter and REAL maple syrup. You can’t go wrong! Ready in minutes by using an electric skillet to make a bunch or a stovetop skillet to make a few at a time, your whole family will love these Homemade Pancakes!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter melted
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 cups milk
Sift together the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and add egg, milk and butter
Stir together until just mixed. Batter will be lumpy. Let sit 5 minutes while your skillet heats up.
With skillet on medium high heat - add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to greased skillet.
Let cook until bubbles appear on the surface and edges are dry.
Flip and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
Top for butter and maple syrup to serve!
