World-Famous Pancake Recipe

Yield: Makes approximately six pancakes, using 1/3 C. batter for each.

World-Famous Pancake Recipe


  • 1 1/2 C.(75 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 T. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 3 T. (45 g) butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 C. milk


  1. Combine the four dry ingredients in a bowl and combine lightly with a fork.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the beaten egg, melted and cooled butter, and the milk. Whisk well.
  3. Now combine the wet and dry mixtures and whisk quickly just until smooth. Don't over mix of the pancakes will be tough as the gluten will be activated.
  4. Begin preheating your griddle or pan before the final mixing of the batter. You can tell the griddle is hot enough once small water droplets dance lightly on the surface.
  5. Once your griddle/pan is hot, pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and whisk together quickly. It's preferable to have a few small lumps in the batter than to over-mix it. If you stir it together too much, gluten will become active and make your pancakes tough. If the mixture seems too thick, add a few more tablespoons of milk to thin it.
  6. When small bubbles on the surface of the pancakes burst, lift an edge to see if they're brown and firm enough, then flip them over and cook 2-3 minutes more.
