Pancake Recipe


This is a pancake recipe that my mom made when we were young. I have been making it for my own family for many years now. When we have overnight guests, it's the pancake recipe that I reach for. I have never met one person that did not like it. You can tweak this recipe by added green icing color gel. Make these on St. Patrick's Day. We love to eat them with maple syrup, whipped cream and fresh fruits. If you don't have a lot of time in the morning, mix up the batter the night before and keep it in the fridge. Just add the color gel at the last minute. In the recipe there is 1 1/4 cup of milk. This makes a thin batter. The final result is more like a crêpe than a thick pancake. Because it is thin, you have to be careful when you cook them because they are ready in no time. My mom gave me a pancake pan but you can use a non-stick pan. 


1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsps sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsps melted butter
1/4 tsp vanilla extract

1- Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
2- In a small bowl mix the milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract together.
3- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well until smooth.
4- Heat 2 tsps of butter in a non-stick pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot with maple syrup.
