  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 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 dry mix. Add the wet ingredients-the egg, milk, and butter.
  • Lightly whisk the batter together until just mixed. The batter will have small lumps. Let sit 5 minutes while your skillet heats up.
  • Add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to the skillet. With large skillet on medium-high heat add 1/4 cup of pancake batter to the skillet.
  • Let cook until bubbles form on the surface and edges are dry.
  • Flip and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
  • Top for butter, powdered sugar, and pure maple syrup to serve!




  • Do not over mix: Your pancakes will be dense and hard if you mix too long. You only want to mix the ingredients together and stop.
  • Butter the pan when you are cooking the pancakes. This helps them to not stick and adds more flavor.
  • Butter: top the pancakes with REAL butter and REAL maple syrup.
  • Use whole milk! This is important for the overall taste. The added fat in whole milk makes these pancakes perfect.
