Lillian's Story

When I tried this recipe I knew I would be making my pancakes like this from now on! They are the fluffiest pancakes I ever had!

5 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
kosher salt
5 Tbsp
white sugar
2 1/2 c
4 Tbsp
butter-melted but not hot
2 large
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar twice. This is very important in making these pancakes light. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg, melted butter and extract. mix until smooth.
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 love these pancakes I have made them with this exact recipe and also using whole wheat flour. This morning I made them and added some canned pumpkin pie mix. All three times they were amazing. These are the best pancakes I have ever had.

After 32 years of marriage, I had never made pancakes from scratch. Oh yes, I used mixes etc, but hubby never liked pancakes..or so I thought. I made this recipe for dinner tonight. I halved it as there are only 2 of us...and he ate every crumb and asked if there were anymore! I enjoyed them a lot, going to put this one in my camping recipe box. I followed the recipe as written, only I ended up letting the batter sit for about a 1/2 hour before cooking. These are great :)
