Description

My go-to pancake recipe, easy to change up and modify, but delicious enough on its own.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Sugar, Or Less To Taste
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 dash Kosher Salt
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 3 Tablespoons Melted Butter

Preparation

Mix the milk and lemon juice together and let sit for a few minutes to thicken. In the meantime, whisk the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Set aside.

Whisk the egg and the cooled melted butter. Add to the milk and lemon juice mixture. Gently mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, just until combined. Do not over mix.

Cook pancakes as you normally would, using 1/4-cup scoops of batter.

Variations:

1. Replace the sugar with a couple of tablespoons of jelly or jam to flavor the pancakes.
2. Sprinkle fruit onto the pancake as the first side cooks. Flip and finish cooking.
3. Roll up the pancake and fill with whatever you feel like stuffing in it: whipped cream and fruit, peanut butter and honey, coconut jam and butter, Nutella …

Just as an update, I stored the leftover batter in a tupperware and cooked them up the next day. Unlike my usual go-to batter that gets kind of yucky when stored overnight, this batter was exactly like the day before, I didn’t even need to stir it up before pouring. I think I have a new go-to recipe. :)

I made these with nonfat milk, and they turned out just fine. They’re best with banana slices on one side before you flip so they cook in. Yum!

For those who are wondering about lemon, the lemon is less for flavoring and more for making sour milk, a great substitute for buttermilk. At least that’s what my experience in cooking has been.

I made these the other morning after searching for a new pancake recipe. I had to add a bit more flour because they were too thin for me at first. I also added some blueberries.

The flavor wasn’t bad, but I felt it was missing something, I’m just not quite sure what.

Very good! Can not taste the lemon at all. This is going in my recipe box as my go to pancake recipe.

Very good scratch recipe. Made with nonfat milk and they were still good. Slightly bland, but perfect with banana slices cooked in.

Finally! I have been searching for a perfect scratch recipe that isn’t too thick and has a nice crispness to the outside. Thank you. This is perfect!
