There is nothing like pancakes from scratch. I grew up on them. They are easy to make and more filling than ones made from a mix.

You will need a skillet or preferably a griddle.


1 cup flour
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
2 Tablespoons cooking oil

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl mix together the egg, milk, and oil.
Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until moistened.

Heat and lightly grease your griddle.
For standard size pancakes pour 1/4 cup batter onto the hot griddle.
If you want dollar size pancakes, use 1 Tablespoon  for each one.
Cook for about 2 minutes. The top of the uncooked pancake will form bubbles all over.
Flip the pancake over and cook for another 2 minutes. Both sides will be golden.

You will get 8-10 standard size pancakes or 36 dollar size.
