Plain Pancakes


Plain Pancakes


  • 2 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/4 c all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt


(Makes around a dozen 4" pancakes or 6 larger ones.). Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until they are thoroughly blended. Put the butter and the milk in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until the butter has melted. Set aside and allow to cool a little --- don't add this mixture to the eggs while it's hot or the eggs will cook prematurely. Stir the butter mixture into the eggs and mix well. Put the flour, sugar,baking powder, and salt into a bowl and stir with a fork until well mixed. Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir only until dry ingredients are well moistened. Don't overmix. Heat a griddle or skillet until a few drops of water dance on it, then lightly film with grease. Drop 2 or 3 Tbsp. of batter for each pancake on the griddle...Use larger amount for larger cake. Cook until bubbles break on the surface. Turn the pancake over and cook another 30 seconds, or until the bottom is lightly browned. Serve the pancakes hot. Chopped fruit can be added once the bubbles form as the first side of the pancake cooks.
