How to make pancakes at home, with ease. This easy recipe makes pancakes that are light and only requires a few simple ingredients.

Pancakes are perfect for a weekend morning or holiday breakfast. Make a double batch and freeze them for breakfasts throughout the week!

Serve these pancakes with plenty of butter and maple syrup, or use your own favorite syrup or fruits on them.

  • Prep: 10 mins
  • Cook: 20 mins
  • Yield: 4 Servings

What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, 9 ounces
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Whisk or stir to blend thoroughly.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and 1 1/2 cups of milk; add to flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Blend in melted butter. If the batter seems too thick to spread, add a little more milk.
  3. Using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake, drop onto a hot, greased griddle.
  4. Cook until you see that the bubbles over the surface are breaking and the edges appear somewhat dry. Turn to brown the other side.


  • The batter can be made the night before. Just cover and refrigerate until the morning.
  • If the batter seems too thick, add a little milk (a tablespoon at a time) until you have a good consistency.
  • If you have a few leftover pancakes, freeze them in a freezer bag. Warm in the microwave, skillet, or toaster.
  • For fluffier pancakes, separate the eggs and beat the whites. Fold them into the batter last.
