1 ½ cups flour

3 ½ tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

1 ¼ cups milk

1 egg

3 tbsp butter, melted

Cap-full of vanilla (not required)

A big pinch of cinnamon (not required)


  • Beat egg, then add wet ingredients
  • In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients
  • combine the wet and dry bowls. Do not over stir and this may take some trial and error. Mix until theres no raw flour but you feel like 3 more turns will finish it. Don’t finish mixing at that point.
  • Pan greased with bacon fat or butter, get it hot but not enough for the butter to burn.
  • I use a quarter cup measuring cup to scoop the batter into the pan but it’s never exact. Go with your heart
  • Once you see bubbles kind of form, flip once.
  • with a wide spatula sneak a peek under the pancake. Once you realize you’ll never be able to actually see how done it is, flip it.
  • Stack pancakes on a plate, adding a pad of butter between each as you cook the rest.
