How to make Homemade Pancakes

I  have been making pancakes for a long time. However, like most people I have my moments when I like to bake and others when I don’t.  In this article I will be sharing my most favorite of all breakfast treats.

Things You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder (optional)
  • 1/2 cup pecan nuts (optional)
  • maple or pancake syrup
  • small bowl
  • whisk
  • Pam spray or vegetable/olive oil
  • large pan
  • wooden spoon


Step 1: First combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a small bowl.

Step 2: Whisk egg until it’s a pale yellow color.

Step 3: Add a 1/2 cup of milk to egg and continue whisking, until it’s uniform in it’s composition.

Step 4: Then combine flour mixture with whisked egg and milk and stir. Continue stirring with a small wooden spoon until the batter is a uniform texture.

Step 5: Let batter rest for 3 or four minutes.

Step 6: Preheat frying pan at medium-low heat.

Step 7: Then spray Pam sparingly on the bottom of the sauce pan.

Step 8: Gradually pour batter into pan (to desired size).

Step 9: Let the batter bake until the bubbles rise. Then wait until at least 3 bubbles break.

Step10: Lastly, flip pancake onto the other side and wait 30 seconds, then transfer to plate.

Step11: Repeat steps 7 to 10 until you have used up the entire batter. Serve pancakes with butter and pancake syrup. Bon Appetite!

1. Add ingredients to taste

2. Add freshly cut bananas, blueberries or strawberries if desired. It really adds to taste and also serves up a balanced breakfast.
