Recipe: Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Just in time for Saturday morning’s breakfast!

I’d only ever made Aunt Jemima pancakes when I was younger so when I found this recipe for pancakes on Allrecipes.com (with 4.5 stars and 3,327 reviews!), I had to try it. It’s easily the best pancake recipe, ever, and the only one I use and will continue to use from now on.

Here it is, with my changes in italics:


    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (definitely DON’T use whole wheat flour, ever! I tried this once and the pancakes were too chewy, thick and heavy)
    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 tsp vanilla essence
    1/2 C *or as desired* Ghiradelli’s (or any brand) dark chocolate chips

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.

Frozen blueberries and/or strawberries tossed into a saucepan makes a lovely fruit topping
Fresh raspberries and powdered sugar on top of maple syrup.
Sometimes I like to spread Godiva chocolate spread over the pancakes…yep, it’s delicious.
