  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
    • In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract (if using).
    • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until just combined; it’s okay if the batter is a little lumpy. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the pancakes tough.
  2. Preheat the Griddle or Skillet:
    • Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease it with butter or oil. To test if it’s ready, sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface. If they sizzle and evaporate, the griddle is hot enough.
  3. Cook the Pancakes:
    • Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Spread it out slightly with the back of the measuring cup.
    • Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges look set, about 2-3 minutes.
    • Flip the pancake with a spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
    • Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing the griddle as needed.
  4. Serve:
    • Stack the pancakes on a plate and serve warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, butter, fresh berries, or whipped cream.


These fluffy homemade pancakes are the perfect way to start your day. With their light and airy texture, they’re sure to become a family favorite.
