Homemade Pancakes

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Approximately 12 pancakes

Difficulty Level: Easy


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray or additional butter for the pan


  1. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Combine Wet Ingredients:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  3. Mix Batter:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. It’s okay if the batter is a bit lumpy.
  4. Preheat Pan:
    • Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat. If using a pan, make sure it is well-heated before cooking.
  5. Grease Pan:
    • Lightly coat the cooking surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
  6. Cook Pancakes:
    • For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle or pan. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges start to look set.
  7. Flip Pancakes:
    • Flip the pancakes and cook the other side until golden brown.
  8. Repeat:
    • Continue cooking the remaining batter in batches, adding more cooking spray or butter to the pan as needed.
  9. Keep Warm:
    • If serving the pancakes in batches, keep them warm in a preheated oven (200°F or 95°C) until ready to serve.
  10. Serve:
    • Serve the homemade pancakes with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar.
  11. Enjoy!
    • Enjoy these light and fluffy homemade pancakes for a delightful breakfast or brunch.


Feel free to customize your pancakes by adding ingredients like blueberries, chocolate chips, or chopped nuts to the batter before cooking. Adjust the sweetness according to your preference.
