Making home made pancakes is so much easier than you think and you probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry and fridge.  This recipe has been passed down on my mom’s side of the family.  We grew up eating these pancakes on special occasions and now I make them for my husband and I on lazy weekend mornings.

  • butter
  1. Sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  2. Beat the eggs, milk, and canola oil.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and beat well.
  4. Heat a griddle or pan until it’s hot. Add a little bit of butter to the pan until melted.
  5. Pour about 1/2 cup of pancake batter onto the hot griddle or pan. Watch carefully, bake for about 1 minute or until the bubbles on the top of the pancake start to burst then flip and cook for an additional minute or two.


Wet and Dry Ingredients.



Beat everything together.


I slit the batter and add about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips for my husband.  I like my pancakes with berries on top at the end.


Add a little butter to the pan or griddle.  Wait for it to melt until you add the pancake batter.

When the bubbles at the top begin to burst, flip the pancake and cook for an additional minute or two.


Top with syrup, berries, or both.  These have been a tradition and a family favorite.  I hope you enjoy!
