Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

by Lisa on June 26, 2010

This recipe was initially tried out of necessity, after I decided to make pancakes one morning – but was fresh out of the boxed mix!  So, I went a-googling and found this recipe for which I happened to have all the ingredients, and decided to give it a whirl.  Talk about easy – made me wonder why we ever relied on having mix on hand in the first place!  In addition, the flavors were so much more vibrant than anything that comes out of a box.  They are particularly wonderful with a few blueberries sprinkled in, and topped with maple syrup.  Add a little pep to your breakfast, and try making pancakes the way they used to! 


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Blueberries, if desired
  • Directions:

    Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.  Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the milk, egg, and melted butter.  Stir until ingredients are smooth and well blended.  Preheat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and coat lightly with vegetable oil.  Ladle batter into the skillet.  If using blueberries, sprinkle the desired number of blueberries onto the pancake before it starts to bubble.  Cook until bubbles appear, then flip and cook until the other side is also lightly browned.  Enjoy!
