Saturday morning pancakes!

The roommie and I woke up this morning and decided it was a pancake morning.  We didn't have a whole lot of ingredients in the house but I found a recipe that utilized exactly what we had (including only 1 egg, which is exactly what was left in the fridge after last week's quiche).

We added some chocolate chips and when we ran out of chocolate chips we added sprinkles (a la How Sweet's Cake Batter pancakes).  Turns out the pan didn't have to be sprayed with Pam because of the butter in the batter.

My roomie taught me her Dad's trick - you know they're ready to flip when the bubbles don't close.







Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
from all recipes


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  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. 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.
