Best Simple Fluffy Pancakes

I don’t know what you think about pancakes, but I think they are pretty great. You can put all different types of syrup on them, fruit and other toppings on them, they have chocolate chip pancakes, blueberry, and the possibilities are basically endless with pancakes. This is my basic recipe for really great pancakes. This is a simple, plain pancake, but I have made them before just by throwing in some chocolate chips or blueberries to change things up.

I don’t have a griddle or specific pancake pan like some people do, so I typically use my cast iron skillet. If you do want blueberry pancakes or some other variety instead, just add it after you have made the basic mixture, but before you cook the pancakes. Here is the recipe:


  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3½ tsps baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  1. Melt the butter in microwave for 30 seconds, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Stir milk and egg together.
  4. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  5. Pour the butter and milk mixture into the well.
  6. Use a whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It might be a little thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.
  7. Sit the batter to the side while heating a lightly oiled skillet or griddle to medium heat. ***I highly recommend not using high heat to cook them quicker, because it will just leave the middle of the pancake uncooked or the outside too burnt.***
  8. Pour the batter onto the griddle/skillet, using about ¼ cup for each pancake (or more depending on how big y’all like your pancakes)
  9. Cook each side for 3-6 minutes, until lightly golden brown.
  10. Enjoy with whatever you fancy on your pancakes. 🙂
