Fluffy and tender made-from-scratch pancakes are not hard or time consuming!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 cups milk
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Pre-heat griddle to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon until well combined. Make a well in the flour.
In a another bowl or a large measuring cup, add milk, egg, vanilla, and oil. Whisk until well combined.
When griddle is hot, add liquid mixture to flour mixture. Mix with a fork until just combined. Batter will not be completely smooth, there should still be lumps. Do not over mix!!
I use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to scoop out batter and drop onto griddle. Do not place them too close or they will be hard to flip.
Let cook for about 3 minutes. Pancakes should fluff up, bubbles will start forming on the tops, and bottoms should be nicely golden.
Carefully, flip pancakes and cook for another minute.
I like to place cooked pancakes on a cookie rack while the others cook. If you place them right on a plate and keep adding pancakes on top the bottom ones will start to get soggy.
Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
