Old Fashioned Pancakes



Old Fashioned Pancakes



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


  1. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  2. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract (if using).
  3. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir just until blended; the batter will be slightly lumpy.
  4. Preheat Griddle or Pan:
    • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. You can test if it’s ready by sprinkling a few drops of water on the surface; if they dance and sizzle, the pan is ready.
  5. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Pour or scoop about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the hot griddle.
    • Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and the edges start to look set, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Flip with a spatula and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 1-2 minutes more.
  6. Serve:
    • Serve hot with your favorite toppings such as butter, maple syrup, fresh fruits, or whipped cream.


  • Don’t Overmix: To keep the pancakes fluffy, mix the batter just until the ingredients are combined. Overmixing can make the pancakes tough.
  • Resting the Batter: Letting the batter rest for about 5 minutes before cooking can help the pancakes rise better.
  • Keep Warm: If making a large batch, keep cooked pancakes warm in a low oven (about 200°F) until ready to serve.

Enjoy your delicious old-fashioned pancakes!
