You likely already have everything you need to make this pancake recipe. If not, here’s what to add to your grocery list:
· Flour: This homemade pancake recipe starts with all-purpose flour.
· Baking powder: Baking powder, a leavener, is the secret to fluffy pancakes.
· Sugar: Just a tablespoon of white sugar is all you’ll need for subtly sweet pancakes.
· Salt: A pinch of salt will enhance the overall flavor without making your pancakes taste salty.
· Milk and butter: Milk and butter add moisture and richness to the pancakes.
· Egg: A whole egg lends even more moisture. Plus, it helps bind the pancake batter together.
Can You Freeze Pancakes?
Yes, you can freeze pancakes and pancake batter.
· To freeze cooked pancakes: Allow the pancakes to cool completely, then arrange them in a single layer on a baking sheet (make sure the edges aren’t touching). Flash freeze for a few hours or up to overnight. Reheat in an oven set to 350 degrees F until warmed through.
· To freeze pancake batter: Ladle the pancake batter in serving size portions into freezer bags, then wrap the bags in foil. Freeze flat for up to one month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder

How To Make Old Fashioned Pancakes
- Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and add milk, melted butter, and egg; mix until smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled griddle or pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side. Repeat with remaining batter.
