Old Fashioned Pancakes

I love going to IHOP & Denney's just for their pancakes.  They taste so much better than the store-bought mixes that I've always bought but I just figured that was how it was & there was nothing I could do about it.  I don't know why I hadn't thought of making my batter from scratch before but I'm so glad that eventually I thought of it.  This recipe is SO much better than any of the store bought mixes & I was even surprise to find out that I liked it a lot more than the restaurant pancakes.  Best part is that I always have the ingredients on hand & they are a lot cheaper than the store bought mixes.  I often double this recipe but then I always have a bunch left over.  I throw the extras into the freezer & then just throw them into the toaster for a quick hot breakfast for the kids.

Old Fashioned Pancakes

  • 1 1/2c all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2t baking powder
  • 1t salt
  • 2T white sugar
  • 1 1/4c milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3T butter, melted

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt & sugar.  Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium low heat.  Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4c for each pancake.  

Brown on both sides and serve hot.
