Homemade Pancake Recipe Anyone Can Prepare
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 egg, beaten well
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil
- 1 cup milk
Step 1: Make pancake batter from scratch
Place sugar, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. Don’t mix the dry ingredients just yet. Make a well in the center of all these ingredients then add the wet ingredients. Pour egg, oil, and milk in the middle then mix all ingredients until the pancake batter has a smooth texture.
Step 2: Ready your griddle pan and put it over medium heat
Get your griddle pan or your frying pan and put it over medium heat. Pour or scoop two to three tablespoons of pancake batter into the griddle. You can also try using ¼ cup of batter to cook one pancake.
Step 3: Cook the batter until it turns bubbly
Cook the batter until it turns all bubbly. This will take about two minutes then use a spatula to flip the pancake over. Cook the other side for another 2 minutes. Both sides of the pancake are ideally golden brown.
Tip: You can make homemade fluffy pancakes with a griddle pan! What makes a griddle-cooked pancake different from all other types of pancakes? When using a griddle pan, the outside surface of the pancake gets nice and crisp while the center remains light and fluffy!
Step 4: Serve your homemade pancake with butter, maple syrup, or fruit slices
Serve these delicious pancakes hot with a slice of butter on top and drizzled with maple syrup or pancake syrup of your choice. Fresh fruit on the side would also be great!
