Ultimate Pancakes

Ok, ok, before you yell at me for just posting recipes let me share with you that I have been on the look out for several PERFECT recipes. I have been searching for the perfect from scratch brownie recipe, and for the perfect from scratch pancake recipe. I think I may have found the perfect from scratch pancake recipe. I would love for you ladies to try it out and tell me if you agree. I received this recipe from our hostess during our trial sermon trip last weekend. She made these Monday and they were...well PERFECT! I could tell they were different this morning while I was mixing them and pouring them onto the griddle.

Easy Sweet Milk Pancakes
1 tbs. sugar
2 tbs butter (melted)
1 egg
1 cup sweet milk (I used 1 cup milk with 1 Tbs. lemon juice and 1 Tbs. sugar, so I had sweet buttermilk, let sit for one minute)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
4 tsp. baking powder
Mix dry ingredients together. Beat egg and milk together. Add butter and other ingredients to your dry ingredients, and mix well. Cook in frying pan or griddle. These will be light and fluffy (I promise!)

*One trick I do is I pre-heat my griddle to 350, after pouring the batter on I raise it up to 400. As soon as they are done I turn the griddle back down to350 while I remove the pancakes and re-butter the griddle. I do not burn my pancakes this way.
*For those of you who like to use wheat flour, I doubled this recipe and used 1 cup white and 1 cup wheat.
* I doubled this recipe and got about 15 good sized pancakes from it.
*You can also substitute the butter for oil, or shortening, whatever you have on hand. If you do so you will lose some of the buttery flavor.


  1. These sound wonderful! I know what you mean about looking for a "perfect" recipe for certain basic items. I have a pretty good one for pancakes, but think I'll give this one a try!

  2. Thanks again for sharing the yummy recipes! I look forward to trying them!

  4. new GFC follower from FFF. :) added your button to my blog! love for you to follow back. THX
    yummy recipes. will have to make pancakes for breakfast tomorrow! :P

  5. I made them, have to say I was impressed. :) I didn't expect them to be any better than the ones I normally make... :) Call me a doubter. Anyways, I made them this morning and they were fluffier than my "normal ones". I may have to have a new normal! I doubled the recipe, got 8 large and 1 small pancake... I use about 3/4 c. of batter/pancake, so they are pretty big. Doubled, the recipe made just enough for our fam... may have to triple it next time. :) Thank you! Have a good day!

  6. Raylin, I am so glad you tried them, even though you doubted! You really made me laugh. Thanks for letting me know what you thought of this recipe!
