  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, butter, fresh fruit, whipped cream


  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and granulated sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk and egg until well combined.
  3. Pour the melted butter into the milk and egg mixture, and whisk until incorporated.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the wet ingredients into the well.
  5. Gently stir the wet and dry ingredients together until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
  6. Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease the skillet with butter or cooking spray.
  7. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet for each pancake, spacing them apart to allow room for spreading.
  8. Cook the pancakes for 2-3 minutes, or until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set.
  9. Carefully flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining batter.
  11. Serve the Old Fashioned Pancakes warm, topped with your favorite toppings such as maple syrup, butter, fresh fruit, or whipped cream.
