These pancakes are a staple to my families breakfast menu.  We have them weekly!  I try to add a little variety by adding chocolate chips or making them different sizes.  I’ve even tried my hands at shapes and letters for the different holidays/seasons.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!  The original recipe is from Betty Crocker, but I have tweaked it a bit.


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 TBsp sugar
  • 2 TBsp oil
  • 1 TBsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Beat egg in medium bowl with whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 to 2 tablespoons milk.

Heat griddle or skillet over low to medium heat or to about 325 degrees F.  Grease griddle with butter if necessary.

For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook pancake until bubbly on top, puffed and dry around edges.  Turn and cook other side until golden brown.

Makes about 8 4-inch pancakes.
