There is nothing I love more than breakfast for dinner. Who says you can’t have pancakes, waffles, bacon, sausage and eggs anytime you want them? Around here, anything goes as long as I feel like cooking it.
Now, I’ve always been a Bisquick girl, trusting the mix that my mom used for years for making my own biscuits, pancakes and other fun recipes. However, I only will buy that stuff when it’s on sale, because it isn’t cheap otherwise. I know there existed recipes on the Internet for homemade pancakes, and I know even family members who have made them from total scratch, but it was something I never tried. That is, until now! Ladies and gents, I have found the perfect homemade “from scratch” pancake recipe. It makes the fluffiest, most tender and tasty pancakes I’ve ever stuffed into my face. That Bisquick stuff? It’s H.I.S.T.O.R.Y!!
Credit where credit is due, this is the link to the actual recipe and the culinary genius who developed it. For the sake of ease, I will post the ingredients and instructions below. Seriously, you HAVE to try these. If you’re a Bisquick hold out like I was, you will never go back, because these are so good, the other pancakes taste like sawdust with syrup. Trust me on this!
The Best Pancake Recipe EVER!
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 tsps baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/4 cups whole milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp butter melted
Melt the butter in microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
Stir milk and egg together.
Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
Pour the butter and milk mixture into the well.
Use a wire whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It will be slightly thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.
Allow the batter to rest while heating a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium high heat.
Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
This recipe should make 10 fluffy pancakes if you use a 1/4 cup measure to scoop the batter. You could also use a batter dispenser (click this link for more information) to achieve the same results.
