Calories 200 kcal


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter.
  • Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until just combined. Don’t overmix! Leaving a few small lumps is perfectly fine.
  • Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease with butter or cooking spray.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot skillet for each pancake.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the pancakes are golden brown and bubbles start to form and pop in the center.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite toppings like butter, maple syrup, fruit, or whipped cream. Enjoy!


  1. For even fluffier pancakes, let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes before cooking.
  2. Don’t crowd the pan. Cook a few pancakes at a time to give them room to spread.
  3. Want a little extra flavor? Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the batter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make the batter ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the batter the night before and store it in the refrigerator. Give it a quick stir before cooking.

Why are my pancakes flat?

There could be a few reasons: your baking powder might be old, you may have overmixed the batter, or your skillet wasn’t hot enough.

How do I know when to flip the pancakes?

Look for bubbles forming on the surface and the edges setting. When you gently lift the edge with a spatula, it should be golden brown on the bottom.

Can I freeze leftover pancakes?

Yes! Cool leftover pancakes completely, then freeze them in a single layer in a freezer-safe bag. Reheat them in the toaster or microwave.

Can I double this recipe?

Of course  you can. This recipe is easily doubled for a larger crowd.
