My grand children love pancakes!

A pancake (hotcake, griddlecake, or flapjack) is a flat thin round cake made from flour based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan.

Pancakes are typically served covered with a sweat syrup, maple being common in the United Starts.

Archaeological evidence suggests that pancakes were probably the earliest and most widespread cereal food eaten.




  1. Soften/melt the butter. Start the frying pan heating on medium low heat
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Make a well in the center and add half the milk, Cooled melted butter, vanilla, and egg.
  4. Mix with a spoon at first. As the rest of the milk is added, move to whisk if desired after batter has thinned a little. Mix together until smooth. The batter will be somewhat thick and creamy in consistency.
  5. If not using a nonstick frying pan, grease the bottom to prevent sticking. make sure the frying pan is evenly heated to medium low.
  6. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and let it spread out into a round shape. You can use the back of your spoon to lightly encourage it if it is not round enough.
  7. When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.


I find that medium low heart varies from stove to stove. Check the color of your first pancake. if it is too brown lower the heat a little. If it is to light increase the heat a little. After doing this a few times you will become familiar with your stove settings for perfect pancakes.

To lubricate regular frying pans you can use butter, lard, bacon fat, or shorting. Each imparts a unique flavor to the pancake. if you have a non stick frying pan, lubrication is not so important.

Feel free to add seasonal or traditional additional ingredients like chocolate chips, raisins, banana bits, or dried cranberries. Use your imagination. If you are using fruits like apples, you will want to precook them first to make sure they are soft.

You can also add a pinch of spices for flavor variations. ground  Nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves are some good examples.
