postheadericon No Box Pancakes


This recipe will make you never want to eat a pancake from a box or bag ever again and your friends and family will be amazed at your skill!  My grandson demands these every time he comes over!


What you need:


Frying pan/griddle


Bowl – Medium sized

Whisk or fork

Measuring cups/spoons

1 1/4 cups (300 ml) of flour

1 tablespoon (15 mL) sugar

1 tablespoon (15 mL) baking powder

1 egg

1 cup (250 mL) Milk

2 tablespoons (30 mL) oil or butter or margarine



Chocolate chips, marshmallows etc.

How to do it:

  • Mix everything together in one medium-sized bowl and whisk with wire whisk or fork until somewhat smooth.  If there are a few lumps don’t worry about it.


  • Heat up your frying pan or griddle on medium heat.  Add a little butter or oil and coat the whole thing.
  • Pour about 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the batter into the pan, spreading it out evenly.  If the batter is too thick, just add a little more milk to it until it is thinned out.


  • Allow the pancake to cook on one side until it gets bubbly and then flip it over.  Let the pancake cook on the other side until a nice golden brown.


  • When you get good at this, you will be able to make a few pancakes at a time.  I like to make mine about six inches diameter.
  • You can add fun stuff to the pancake when you drop it into the pan.  Add chocolate chips to be a hit with the kids!
  • Add butter and syrup!  Enjoy!
