How to make Pancakes – Simple Homemade Pancakes Recipe


“Fluffy and Delicious Homemade Pancakes: A Step-by-Step Guide”

Making pancakes is a relatively simple process. Here’s a basic recipe for making pancakes:


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


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough pancakes.
  4. Preheat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. You can test if the pan is hot enough by sprinkling a few drops of water onto the surface. If the water droplets sizzle and evaporate quickly, the pan is ready.
  5. Grease the pan with a small amount of butter or cooking spray.
  6. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup or a ladle, pour the batter onto the hot pan. You can make small or large pancakes, depending on your preference. Leave enough space between each pancake to allow for spreading.
  7. Cook the pancakes for about 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form on the surface. This indicates that the underside is cooked.
  8. Flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until the other side is golden brown.
  9. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm. Repeat the process with the remaining batter, greasing the pan as needed.
  10. Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or chocolate chips.

Note: This recipe is a basic pancake recipe, but you can customize it by adding ingredients like blueberries, chocolate chips, or cinnamon to the batter before cooking.

Enjoy your homemade pancakes!
