Every household in America has had pancakes. My personal favorite is to add some chocolate chips to the batter and serve with bacon. The sweet and salty – YUM!

Here is my go to recipe for homemade pancakes. It is so worth the extra prep instead of the box. Don't forget to have some good quality butter on hand to top them off.


Perfect Pancakes

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes/batch

Total: 20 minutes

Cuisine: American

Special Tools: Griddle

Course: Breakfast


  • 4 cups all purpose flour

  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • 4 large eggs

  • 4 cups milk

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl, mix together your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and baking powder.

  2. Do the same in a separate bowl with your wet ingredients: eggs, milk, and vanilla extract.

  3. Add your milk mixture to the flour mixture in two batches. Make sure to not over mix, pancake batter is ready when there are still some chunks in the dough.

  4. Next, get your griddle to medium-high heat and melt some butter over it.

  5. Spoon about 1/4 cupful of batter onto your griddle. Once they begin to bubble on the top, carefully flip them over. They're done when both sides are golden.

  6. Continue until all the batter is used. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
