  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ Tbsp white sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg whisked
  • ¾ c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted (slightly cooled)
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Combine dry ingredients (flour, powder, sugar and salt) in a bowl.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry mix. Add the milk, slightly cooled butter, egg and vanilla into the well. Whisk together until it is smooth and lump free.
  • Let the pancake mix rest while you heat a skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Lightly grease skillet or griddle with non-stick spray or butter.
  • Pour pancake batter into a condiment bottle, piping bag or gallon zip lock bag and snip the tip of one corner off at an angle.
  • The skillet or griddle should be hot now. Squeeze small dots (½’’ or 1 cm) onto a hot skillet or griddle. When bubbles form on the top of the mini pancakes flip the pancakes over with a fork or small spatula. Cook 1-2 minutes or until the bottom side of pancakes are golden brown.
  • Repeat steps until all batter is used. We recommend wiping out the pan or griddle with a paper towel in between batches and using fresh butter or non-stick spray.
  • Serve with butter, syrup, honey, fruit or whatever you’d like!



Pancake Batter: For the best pancakes, let the batter rest before you cook the pancakes. I like to make the batter and set it aside while I heat the griddle and prepare the piping bag.
Short-Cut Tip: There’s nothing like homemade pancakes, but if you want to cut the prep time, use a pancake mix instead. It will save a little time!
Piping Tip: I think the easiest way to pipe the batter is with a squeeze bottle. It’s worth having one or two because you can use them for other things like drizzling chocolate and sauces for different kinds of recipes.
Cooking Tip: You will probably need to cook the pancakes in batches, so keep the cooked ones on a sheet pan in a warm oven.
