Easy Homemade Pancakes Recipe

My recipe for Easy Homemade Pancakes is just that – EASY. Pancakes from scratch are quick to make and they taste so yummy with some butter and maple syrup. I know most people think that pancakes are just for breakfast, but I eat them for dinner several times a month.

Ingredients For My Easy Homemade Pancakes

Simple ingredients: all-purpose flour, brown sugar, milk, melted butter, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 2 eggs. I keep some melted butter aside for the pan before starting to fry the pancakes.

How To Make Pancakes From Scratch

This recipe could not be easier! The first step is to whisk together your dry ingredients. If you’d like to add spices or any kind of seasoning to the dry ingredients, now is the time! I then make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and then add my wet ingredients. I whisk very well to make a smooth batter. Sometimes you have to mash down the brown sugar if you see lumps. You can add chocolate chips, fruit such as blueberries or bananas, or even pieces of caramel to the batter. Anything you think might taste good in a pancake probably will!

I love using my tiny little frying pans! I bought a few of these years ago when they were on sale and I pretty much only use them to make perfect-sized pancakes! I butter the pan just to make sure nothing sticks on the first run. I then drop in the pancake batter, about 1/4 a cup at a time.

When I start to see bubbles forming on the top, I slide my lifter under the pancake to check the color. If it’s a nice brown color, I flip it over and let it cook for a few more minutes.

And that’s it! Breakfast is served!
