  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • additional butter for greasing pan about 3 Tbsp


  • Combine dry ingredients and sift in a bowl.
  • In another bowl beat egg until light and fluffy. Add 1 c. milk and melted butter to bowl. Stir.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until moistened. At this point if it is to thick add the remaining 1/4 c. of milk to the batter a little at a time until you reach the consistency you want.
  • Heat griddle or skillet over medium-low heat. Melt about 1/2 Tbsp butter in a large non-stick skillet. Ladle the batter (about 1/4 c. batter) into the skillet making 3-4 pancakes. Cook pancakes until bubbles form on top. Flip and brown the other side.
  • Wipe out any excess butter with paper towels. Repeat with remaining batter.



I had comments about this being to thick so I adjusted the recipes from 1 c. milk to 1 1/4c. milk on 10/14/18. If you made it before that please note that!
The original recipe doesn't call for vanilla, but it adds a great flavor. I recommend 1/4 - 1/2 tsp vanilla!
