This is a great recipe that I found in my Grandma’s recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this recipe card, this was a family favorite.

  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
  2. 2 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.

  1. I think that people should already know by now that if something goes wrong, it is NOT THIS RECIPE'S FAULT. This is a perfect recipe, it works, and it's just plain right. After reading some of the reviews, there are a few common problems amongst them. 1) Do not use COLD MILK. Start with warm - Read more ...
  2. Wow, these were absolutely fantastic. I read many reviews before I made these so I made some changes to the recipe based on all the reviews......I doubled the recipe and made the following changes. I used 4-teaspoons baking powder, 1-teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2-teaspoon nutmeg, 1-tablespoon vanilla, 1/2-teaspoon salt, 3-cups milk, 3 eggs lightly beaten and 1-stick - Read more ...
  3. This had WAY too much salt! Next time I will only use 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. at most!
  4. It kills me how people go in and mutilate a perfectly good recipe. Then you have bad reviews and more mutilations. I read these reviews and decided I'd make the recipe just as it calls and I recommend not changing a thing (except maybe adding 1/2 tsp of vanilla to your egg mixture). I DO - Read more ...
  5. Wow, what a nice surprise! This recipe was outstanding! I read close to 200 reviews before I made these up and this is what I came up with: I doubled the recipe to make sure I had enough for four of us as others felt that the serving size is off, I have a ton - Read more ...

  7. I used 1/4 tsp less salt and added 1 tsp vanilla. Loved these pancakes. My boyfriend said that they're better than any box brand and that they had the taste of "sugar cookie dough." Goodbye Bisquick, I'm keeping this easy and great breakfast recipe! Thanks Verona!
  8. These are great! I prepared 6 separate batches of the dry ingredients into plastic bags, attached labels for the milk, egg & butter, and will pack them in the travel trailer for our summer trip. I can't wait to taste them out in the fresh air.
  9. Like most of the others I only used 3/4 tsp. salt and added 1 tsp. vanilla. These are the best pancakes I've ever made at home, thanks for the recipe!!
