  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar granulated
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter melted (4 tbsp)


  • In a bowl combine together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. 
  • Make a well in the center and add the milk, egg and melted butter. Whisk until most of the big lumps are gone, but do not over mix.
  • Heat a non stick skillet over medium heat. Brush with a little bit of butter, about 1/2 tsp, or swirl it around to evenly coat the bottom of the skillet.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the middle of the skillet. Use a ice cream scoop or a smaller ladle. Spread the batter around a bit to make sure it forms a circle. Cook for about 30 seconds or until bubbles start to form, then flip and cook on the other side until golden brown.
  • Transfer to a plate and keep warm while repeating with remaining batter, until done. 


Should yield anywhere from 8 to 12 pancakes, depending on size of pancake.
To freeze pancakes, place a sheet of wax paper between each pancake and stack together. Wrap the stack tightly with aluminum foil and place it inside a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 1 to 2 months. To reheat the frozen pancakes, place them on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave uncovered for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, or until heated through.
Nutritional information assumes this recipe yields 8 pancakes. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
