Say goodbye to Aunt Jemima! Once you taste these homemade pancakes I think you'll agree they're much better than the boxed kind! Add a bit of vanilla or fruit (frozen blueberries work well) to make them extra special. If you want, mix up the dry ingredients in advance and give it away as a gift (with instructions on how to finish making the pancakes) or just store it for even quicker pancakes on Sunday mornings.
"i just made this for lunch ( seeing that i woke up at 2pm!)and they were great! Very light and fluffy, and they were really easy to flip too. I usually get the boxed kind cause i'm a uni student and i figured the less hassle the better ;). But these pancakes were really easy to make, it only took me a couple of minutes. I made some changes though, i added two bananas, and i used 3tbsp of honey instead of sugar. Still wasn't sweet though, might add some more next time. Thanks for the great recipe!"- Butternutter

Top-ranked recipe named "Basic Pancake Mix Recipe"
In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk. Start with 1 1/4 cups milk, adding up to another 1/4 cup if necessary, as you mix it with the flour.
Add the two eggs, vanilla (if using) and oil, whisking until mixed but still a bit lumpy. Heat a frying pan (if it is not non-stick, you will need to melt a bit of butter or oil in it) and when hot, pour in some pancake mix. How much depends on how experienced you are at flipping pancakes and how big you want them. We do about 1/4 cup a time for small, easy-to-flip pancakes but you could make this as much as 1/2 cup of pancake mix.
If you are adding fruit, I like to sprinkle it on top of the pancake now.
When the pancake starts to bubble on top and is golden brown on the cooked side, turn it and continue cooking until both sides are golden brown.
The first pancake is always a bit of a test so adjust the batter by adding more flour if you need to make it thicker or more milk if you want a thinner pancake. In either case, just add a few spoonfuls at a time until you get it right.
Repeat the cooking process with the remaining batter. You may need to adjust the heat as pan tends to get hotter as you keep making pancakes.
Keep the cooked pancakes covered with a tea towel, to keep them warm while you finish cooking the rest.
This is my wife Linda's favorite pancake recipe.

keddacakes 6 months agoI made this recipe exactly as instructed. It tasted just like an egg. If you are going to make, I suggest one egg instead of two
tarachavez 7 months agoI've tried plenty of different pancake recipes. Love this one. Only thing I did was separate the eggs and fold in the egg whites at the end. So they would be a lil more fluffy!
