These are absolutely the best home made pancakes we have ever eaten!

This is one of my favorite go-to recipes because I always have what I need to make it on hand.  I love that it only requires a few simple ingredients, takes only a few minutes to make, and tastes a million times better than box mix.  This recipe makes ten perfect pancakes every single time.


  • Make sure you have even heat (I like to use an electric griddle)
  • Let the batter rest for a few minutes (to activate the baking powder)
  • Use nonstick baking spray (yes, even on nonstick pans)

Make sure you have even heat, especially if you are using a skillet.  Let your pan heat up while you make the batter; an easy way to test if your pan is ready is by flicking a tiny bit of water onto the pan.  If it’s hot and ready to go the water will sizzle immediately.

Always spray your pan with a little bit of nonstick spray to keep your pancakes from sticking (Yes, even in non-stick pans.  I’ve also tried butter, but it does change the surface of the pancake, so I prefer nonstick spray, like Pam.)

I received an Electric Griddle for Christmas- and I highly recommend it!  I love being able to to set the temp (I use 325 degrees) and make multiple pancakes at once.  It also makes perfect eggs- so smooth, no crispy edges or skirt.  Griddles really do make the most perfect pancakes (i.e. “griddle cakes”).
