The best PanCakes

Creating the perfect pancake is a matter of personal preference, but here’s a classic and delicious recipe for what many consider to be the best pancakes:


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter or oil for cooking


  1. Mix Dry Ingredients:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  2. Mix Wet Ingredients:
    • In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  3. Combine:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps; overmixing can make the pancakes dense.
  4. Preheat the Griddle or Pan:
    • Preheat a griddle or non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a small amount of butter or oil to prevent sticking.
  5. Pour Batter:
    • Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. If you want larger pancakes, pour more batter.
  6. Cook Until Bubbles Form:
    • Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, and the edges start to look set.
  7. Flip:
    • Carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side until golden brown.
  8. Serve:
    • Remove the pancake from the griddle and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.
  9. Top and Enjoy:
    • Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, or whipped cream.

These pancakes are fluffy, flavorful, and versatile. Feel free to customize the recipe by adding ingredients like chocolate chips, blueberries, or mashed bananas for extra flavor. Enjoy your delicious homemade pancakes!
