This easy pancake recipe is just as simple as using a box mix. 

How to Make It

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the milk, egg, and 1 tablespoon melted butter and whisk just to combine.

Working in batches, melt 1/2 tablespoon of the remaining butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. For each pancake, spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into the skillet and cook until bubbles appear on the tops and the bottoms are golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook 30 seconds more. Repeat with remaining butter and batter.

Really good recipe. I double recipe, add 1tbsp vanilla extract, 3/4 tsp each nutmeg and cinnamon. My kids and everyone love this variation and we have deemed it Mom's French toast pancakes. If batter is too thin gradually add flour until it is desired thickness.

I had lumpy pancake batter - I'm sure I'm missing an elementary step here. But they tasted incredible! More like crepes (thicker crepes?) than regular pancakes.

I made this recipe for my mom and me and we loved it. I've made it twice now. They are simple and quick to make. The only change that I made was to spray the pan with pam and spread the butter on top of them after I flipped them over. We ate them plain, without syrup or jam. Definitely a new favorite.
