Author Notes

"This is a great recipe that I found in my Grandma's recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this recipe card, this was a family favorite."

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

I'm not a big pancake fan but these are off the chart!!!!!! Light, fluffy and not too sweet. Now when my husband wants pancakes, I'm all for them. Recipe is so simple and easy to make. I'm making sure I take the recipe with me when I visit my grandkids in March. Only use real butter and real New England maple syrup ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

really nice thick fluffy pancakes. made into a big stack for my roommate's birthday breakfast, and I hope this isn't blasphemous, but we added gharadilli milk chocolate chips.

This is the best pancake recipe. I always get lots of compliments when I make this. Before finding this recipe, pancakes where just average, now they are a new level of delicious. The texture isnโ€™t amazing. I also enjoy the intro story about finding it in your grandmotherโ€™s collection with weathered corners. Thank you for sharing this publicly!
