Mom's Pancakes

Image by Pippalunacy

Here is a great recipe for pancakes.  My husband who thought he did not like pancakes learned that if he tried the right ones, they were one of his favorite breakfasts.  I often double and sometimes even triple this breakfast treat.  I hope you enjoy this family favorite.  It's easy and delicious!

Mom's Pancakes


1 1/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
3 tablespoons oil
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup milk

Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Add the wet ingredients, stirring gently being sure not to over mix.    Place frying pan on medium heat.  Once heated, coat with non-stick spray and pour batter on by 1/4 to 1/3 cupfuls.  Flip when bubbles appear.  If pancakes appear to be burning, turn burner down slightly (I usually keep my burner at 4, one click below medium).  Serve with maple syrup and butter or topping of your choice.

Tip!  If you want to keep these hot while you cook, place an oven-safe dish in your oven at the lowest setting and place pancakes on the dish as you cook them.

Tip!  If you want fluffy pancakes that melt in your mouth, flip only once.  Over-flipping causes the pancakes to become rubbery.

Tip!  If you want to add less fat to your recipe, omit the oil.  The pancakes are still great, they just have a slightly different texture.
