Made from Scratch Pancakes

Submitted by: KIMBERLYCREATES


Number of Servings: 21

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cup flour, sifted
    1 TBS baking powder
    1 TBS sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 egg, beaten
    1 cup milk
    1 1/2 TBS oil

Directions

Sift flower with baking powder, sugar, and salt. Combine egg, milk, and oil. (Note: It's a general rule of thumb that you can decrease the oil in a recipe by one-third--the oil in this recipe has already been decreased from the original recipe!) Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Spray cooking spray onto hot griddle or skillet. Drop better from a large soup spoon onto hot griddle or skillet. I set the heat under my skillet to just a hair below medium. Using a large soup spoon, the pancakes will be smaller, about 1 to 2 inches across. Bake until top is bubbly and underside is browned (about 2 minutes). Turn and bake until underside is browned (about 2 more minutes). Makes about 21 small pancakes, or about 7 larger ones. (For nutritional info, serving size is based on one small pancake. A larger pancake would be about the same as 3 smaller ones.)

    I'm not very good at making pancakes but these turned out great! I read the reviews and made modifications: no oil, added vanilla, used egg beaters and skim milk, and I used a cup of fresh blueberries. What a great, filling breakfast. Thanks for the recipe! - 7/7/07

    It's a great and easy recipe for sure! I added cinnamon which was a delicious touch. I agree that you get less pancakes than the recipe states, you would have to use a soup spoon to get 21. I suggest doubling the batch if you're feeding more than 3 or 4. - 5/2/10

  • Would like some help, please.....Not sure what I did wrong but the batter was very thick. I followed the recipe (added a shake of cinnamon) & I kept adding milk before I could spoon it on the pan. Finally I had thick, fluffy pancakes (probably a little to thick). I really want to try this again. - 1/21/14

  • These were very good! I made these with my 1 1/2 yr. old daughter. It was a fun and healthy way to engage her in the kitchen! I would definitely make these again and try some of the suggestions listed below but the recipe as is was excellent. - 11/9/13

  • I have made these about 20 times. We've added chocolate chips, banana's, blueberries, and more! I substitute the oil for applesauce. :) They're easy and amazing.

  • I tried to replace reg flour w/whole wheat flour & I added a dab of vanilla & about tspn cinnamon. The batter was way too thick. I added a little water & milk & probably ended up adding 2 cups worth @ the end to get the rt consistency. They came out ok but tasted bad even with syrup. - 9/19/10
