Look, I’m not really a “share my recipes online” kind of person, because I don’t really use recipes. I’m more of an intuitive cook. That said, I do have one recipe that I follow religiously and it’s these pancakes. They only have FOUR ingredients, so they’re fabulously easy to make.
I was first given the recipe almost 15 years ago by my ex-cousin-in-law, and it has been a Saturday morning tradition ever since. Honestly, I think the main reason I’m sharing it here is so that when friends and family ask me for the recipe, I can just tell them to google it. HA!
I make these with a blender and a skillet, but you could make them with a bowl, a whisk, and a frying pan.
This recipe makes enough for 2 people. Scale it up for more folks, generally 1 egg per person.
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/3 cup milk
- 2/3 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
How to prepare:
- Preheat your griddle on low heat
- Put eggs and milk in a blender and blend on lowest setting
- While still blending, add flour
- Once flour is fully blended, add melted butter and continue blending until the batter is thick and creamy
- Pour batter onto ungreased griddle
- Turn stove up to medium high
- I pour the pancakes very large at first, and then a batch of “baby cakes” with the last of the batter at the end.
How to serve
- No butter is necessary because they’re already so buttery!
- I like to load these up with toppings like fruit and yogurt and syrup, and then roll them up and top them with whipcream.
- My son spreads with toppings and whip cream, and then eats them like burritos
- The baby cakes get served in a tiny stack with a blueberries
