Homemade pancakes from scratch turn out light and fluffy every time!  This recipe is the best and is super quick and easy.  You can add blueberries or chocolate chips!


  • 3 C flour
  • 2 Tb + 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 1/2whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 Tb butter, melted
  • fresh blueberries or chocolate chips (optional)


  1. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. In a medium bowl, melt the butter in microwave.  Whisk in the milk and eggs into the melted butter.
  2. Create a well in the center of the flour mixture, then add the liquid mixture into that well.  Use a wire whisk to stir everything together until just combined. It will be slightly thick and lumpy, but should be well incorporated.  Do not over-mix or you will end up with dense pancakes. Allow the batter to rest.
  3. Heat your griddle or nonstick pan to medium heat.  Spray your cooking surface lightly with non-stick spray.  Use about 1/4 C of batter for each pancake and pour onto your preheated surface.  If using blueberries or chocolate chips, sprinkle them on top of the pancake right after pouring.
  4. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes, until lightly golden brown.  Before flipping over the first time, be sure you have those bubbles forming and popping on the uncooked side, and the edges are beginning to set.
