Pancake Recipe From Scratch

By Ben Panny

Pancakes are a tasty way to begin your day. They are not hard to produce at all, and a beginner cook can effortlessly make these from scratch. There is absolutely no need to buy the frozen ones, they're not as tasty or as light and fluffy as ones that you make on your own. They do have pancakes mixes that work nicely and taste great, but you're paying a lot more for the convenience of having all the dry ingredients measured out and place into a box for you. You may conveniently do this yourself at home. You could even mix up a double batch and keep some in an airtight container to use a different day. Pancakes are not only fantastic in the mornings, they make a fast, yummy and effortless dinner also if you are in the mood for anything light. You can also change them up simply with add ins.

Here is an easy pancake recipe from scratch

You will require the following ingredients, if you want to create extra batter, just double or triple the ingredients:

- 2 cups of flour,

- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar,

- 1 tablespoon of baking powder,

- 1/2 teaspoon of salt,

- 2 eggs,

- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil,

- and 1 1/2 cups of milk.

Break the eggs in a bowl, beat them, add the milk and oil. Set that bowl aside. In a different bowl mix all of the dry ingredients. Now add the dry ingredients into the liquid, mix it but not too much, it should be a bit lumpy, the more mixing you do, the harder your pancakes will turn out.

Put a bit of butter or oil on a griddle or frying pan, let it heat up, pour some batter onto the pan, you may make your pancakes small, like silver dollar ones, or big. Let it cook until you see bubbles on the top and the edges are dry, once you see that flip and cook the other side. The other side doesn't take as long. Serve with butter and maple syrup, or you may sprinkle powdered sugar over them.

If you'd like, you may add blueberries to the batter for blueberry pancakes, or chocolate chips for chocolate chip pancakes. You can also mash a banana up in the batter to make tasty banana pancakes. Your loved ones will love the pancakes and you saved some money by making the batter yourself.
