Weekends are the best, and weekends that include homemade pancakes are kind of amazing! Some Sundays over here include seriously awesome homemade pancakes. I can say that they are awesome because my husband, Scott, makes them, not me.
A few weeks ago his pancake game was seriously on point, like they reached a whole new level of awesome (fluffy, buttery goodness) and I decided that they needed to be shared with the world, or the few of you that are checking them out. So after indulging, we sat down at the table and he told me exactly what he does to make them. They are delicious and totally toddler approved.
1 ½ cups flour
3 and ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp white sugar
1 and ¼ cup milk
3 tbsp melted butter
1tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp butter (to grease frying pan)
- Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in one bowl.
- In another bowl mix milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.
- Make a well in the centre of your dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixing until they are well combined.
- Let mixture stand for about 10 minutes. This will help the dough to rise and it makes for some extra fluffy pancakes.
- On medium heat melt a tbsp of butter in a frying pan and pour pancake mixture into the pan in medium sized circles. Flip pancakes when they start to bubble.
*Extras: you can add blueberries, chocolate or even cooked bacon to the pancake mixture for a little bit of extra deliciousness! But I personally love them plain with a little bit of Canadian Maple Syrup!
