Pancake Recipe

A pancake is a popular breakfast dish made from a simple batter consisting of flour, milk, eggs, and a leavening agent (such as baking powder). Pancakes are cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan, resulting in a flat, round cake that is golden brown on both sides. They are typically soft, fluffy, and versatile, making them a favorite breakfast choice for many people around the world.


Estimated Time:

  • Preparing the pancake batter should take about 10 minutes.
  • Cooking the pancakes will require approximately 20-25 minutes

Depending on the size of your skillet or griddle and how many pancakes you can cook at once.


Classic Pancake Recipe:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Butter or oil for greasing the pan




Instructions for Pancake:

Step 1:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

Step 2:

In a separate bowl, beat the egg, then add the milk and melted butter. Mix until the wet ingredients are well incorporated.

Step 3:

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; some lumps in the batter are normal. Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes, which helps the pancakes become lighter and fluffier.

Step 4:

Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. If using a skillet, add a small amount of butter or oil and spread it evenly.

Step 5:

Once the skillet is hot, ladle about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the surface of each pancake. You can make them larger or smaller based on your preference.

Step 6:

Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes on the first side, or until bubbles start to form on the surface. This indicates that it’s time to flip the pancakes.

Step 7:

Carefully flip the pancakes and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Step 8:

Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and keep them warm. You can cover the plate with aluminum foil or keep them in a warm oven (set to a low temperature) while you cook the remaining pancakes.

Step 9:

Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter, adding more butter or oil to the skillet as needed to prevent sticking.

Step 10:

Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, fresh fruits, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.


In total, you can expect to spend around 30-35 minutes from start to finish, and this recipe should yield about 8-10 delicious and fluffy pancakes. Enjoy!
