Classic Pancakes

I thought I had found a winner with the Alton Brown recipe for pancakes until I decided to try a recipe from the editors of Martha Stewart Living, Good Things for Kids: 63 Fun and Easy Recipes the Whole Family Will Love.

Sure enough, the whole family loved these Classic Pancakes. They were so incredibly light and fluffy. This is going to become my tried and true go to recipe for when itty bitty, Mr. Sideline Chef, or myself want pancakes for breakfast or as itty bitty requested some for snack today.

The best thing about pancakes is how versatile they are. You can throw in whatever mix-ins you fancy. Chocolate chips, granola, fruit, nuts? Get creative. No matter how you eat 'em you won't be disappointed.

Makes 10 Pancakes

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil, plus more for greasing the griddle
And Action:

If using an electric griddle heat to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl whisk together milk, eggs, and the oil. Pour the liquid mixture over the flour mixture and whisk until combined. Make sure not to over mix the batter.

Grease the griddle or skillet. Set skillet on medium. Once hot, pour 1/3 cup batter for each pancake. Add your mix-ins if desired. Flip when small holes appear, about 1 1/2-2 minutes. Cook second side until golden.
