Homemade Pancakes





Introduction: Homemade Pancakes

Step 1: What You Need

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups milk (sour or butter is better)
  • 1 tsp soda (baking)
  • 2 1/2 cups flour (i usually add another 1/2 cup or so to thicken it)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 4 Tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Step 2: Beat Eggs

just what the title says, beat the eggs well.

Step 3: Add the Rest

Add the milk and soda, mix; then beat in the rest of the ingredients. Mix well until there are no clumps left. It should look like what you see in the second pic.  

Step 4: Cook 'em

Pour the batter into something you can easily pour out of. Or you could use a handled measuring cup and just scoop it onto the pan. I use those cups you see me pouring it into in the pics.

Heat the pan to hot (you want it hot before you start cooking at all). When they are at the right temp you should be able to flick some water on, and the water will skitter around in little bubbles. Whenthe pan is hot butter it and start cooking.

Pour the batter onto the pan into 3-4" circles. Let them cook until bubbles start showing on the top side, as soon as it's nice and bubbled, flip it. You should have a nicely browned side if you timed it right (it takes a little practice to get the perfect looking ones, but as long as they arent black, they're fine). Cook on this side until browned. Pile on plate and serve as soon as you have 8-10 done (hotter and fresher is much better)

The last pic shows the bubbles right before it's ready to flip. It's better when there are more bubbles)  

Step 5: Enjoy!

when cooking you can scatter on some berries, choc chips, or other things for more tasty fun. Even without added things they are great, just serve them with some other breakfast stuff (eggs and sausage, or bacon, etc...). They are best with REAL maple syrup, not that sugar water dyed brown.

they're so good! I added a tsp and 1/2 of vanilla extract and it made the flavor even better than before! and I sprinkled on chocolate chips :)


They look great. I tried to use water instead of milk and it worked.(add a little more flour)


They do look good - light and fluffy - when's breakfast!

Firstly, split the pancake into two layers..
Secondly, brush on some pepper sauce.
Thirdly, put some bacons and some vegatables.
Finally, Open your mouth and enjoy it.

Sorry, actually I mean flavor.

Western food is really tasty and healthy. I am thinking about how to mixture the favors of both western food and chinese food. Frankly, I like pepper very much.

Any idea how to make this recipe so the pancakes are lighter? I tried some Aunt Jemima pancake mix, and it's so light and fluffy!

No idea, sorry, I never make it from a mix, so I don't have a way to compare. And I'm not really a cooking expert, I just follow the recipes, then try to modify them without ruining them.

Well I did try your recipe and loved it ;-) I just then also love the lighter mix stuff too. Would like to get it somewhere closer to the lighter side.

I guess I'll be the first to say I actually tried this recipe!

I just made these this morning and hoped they would be good. I made it exactly to the recipe but only thickened the mix with an additional 1/4 cup of flour. I also curdled the milk after bringing it to room temp and adding 3 tbsp of distilled white vinegar. They browned up beautifully and tasted better than any pancakes I've made to date, most have been premixed stuff from the store.

Thanks so much for the recipe, you've made me a hero at home ;-)
