The Perfect Pancakes

source: Simple Organized Living

On busy weekday mornings, we often settle for a quick bowl of cold or hot cereal.

However, if you stop by our house on any given Saturday morning, you will most likely be greeted by the smell of warm pancakes, maple syrup, and hot coffee.

We LOVE pancakes!!

I have to confess though, when we first got married, I made pancakes from Bisquick mix. I figured that making them from “scratch” was just too much work… until I found my Perfect Pancake Recipe.

This recipe only requires a few common baking ingredients, and the only dishes you’ll have to wash are a bowl, a fork, and 2 measuring devices!

This recipe makes about 15 small pancakes, but is easily doubled or tripled to feed larger groups. The pancakes also taste great as leftovers the next morning — or out of the freezer later in the week!

The Perfect Pancakes


Course: Breakfast



  • 1 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 T. brown sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 T. oil or melted butter
  • 3 T. sour cream
  • blueberries, raspberries, chocolate chips or your favorite mix-in {optional}


  1. 1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. {I always measure the dry ingredients first because then I can use the same measuring utensils for the wet ingredients}
  2. 2. Add egg, milk, oil, and sour cream to the flour mixture and whisk just until combined {don’t get carried away here or your pancakes will be flat}
  3. 3. Pour or scoop the batter onto a preheated griddle or frying pan {I use a gravy spoon to scoop equal portions without all the dripping}
  4. 4. If you want to add berries, nuts, or chocolate chips, you should sprinkle them on top of the bubbling batter before you flip the pancakes. If you just like your pancakes plane, you can skip this step.
  5. 5. Once the tops of the pancakes are filled with “bubbles”, quickly flip them over to cook the other side.
  6. 6. When the second side is golden brown, stack your pancakes on a big plate and drench with your favorite syrup.
