Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to share one of my all-time favorite, never-fail, dinner-in-a-pinch recipes with you today. I’ll be honest… pancakes have been a struggle for me in the past. I love diner or restaurant pancakes but whenever I tried to make them at home, they always turned out rubbery or gross. A few years ago Abby’s preschool teacher, our favorite Miss Mary, gave me the recipe for these absolutely perfect pancakes, and I’ve been hooked on them ever since!

They are so incredibly light and fluffy, and they have the perfect taste and texture. These pancakes taste just as delicious as or better than any pancakes I’ve had at a restaurant. Best of all, they are super quick to make and I always have the ingredients for them on hand. We’ve had them for dinner several nights in the last month (yes, we eat breakfast for dinner pretty frequently) and I’ve fallen in love with them all over again. I usually serve them with lots of fresh fruit and some turkey bacon on the side, and everybody’s happy!

Print Recipe
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups milk

Instructions

  • Preheat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl, and whisk with a fork to combine. Mix eggs, oil, and milk together until well combined. Add to dry ingredients, and mix with a fork until mostly combined, with some small lumps of flour remaining.
  • Lightly butter the preheated griddle and pour the batter by 1/4 cup scoops onto the griddle (I always use a measuring cup so they’re all the same size). Cook 3-4 minutes or until there are bubbles throughout the top of the pancakes, and the edges of the pancakes look dry. Flip the pancakes and cook for another minute or until lightly browned on the bottom. Serve warm with butter and syrup.

  1. I really have got to get away from using boxed pancake mix! These look so fluffy and perfect, I would be a fool not to make them instead!

    1. We have been using your recipe for more than 3 years now!!! Thanks for the recipe .We all love it!! A family breakfast classic 🥞. I read some comments about not having enough flour or going runny. Yes the batter is more liquid than other recipes. But they turn great. I think when the pan is not heated enough there woukd be a problem to get them right. We follow your instructions and heat it with time. And they turn excellent ☺️.

  2. I followed the recipe but added vanilla + they were yummy! The only "issue" I had was the thickness. My pancakes were flat like McDonald's! Help! What did I do wrong?!

  3. I wouldn't save the batter for later, but you could cook the pancakes and freeze them. I do that a lot so I can make breakfast easily on busy mornings. You could also half or even quarter the recipe.

  4. I made these Pancakes yesterday and I felt that it needed extra flour as well. I added 4 heaping Tbsp of flour and 1 tsp of Vanilla and they came out great! I suspect you could also use less milk, perhaps 3/4 cup instead of adding flour.

  5. My absolute “go to” recipe for pancakes. Love, love, love them. Thank you for sharing! No changes, just ‘Perfect’ the way the recipe is. Thanks again!!
