Perfect PancakesPin It
One of the things I’ve always struggled with is making good pancakes from scratch. They were always dark, bubbly, thin, rubbery, or just about anything else you can think of that a pancake shouldn’t be. For that reason, I always resorted to a mix. It’s about the only thing (other than cakes) I’ll make from a mix- if that tells you how bad they really were.
I’ve been on a quest to develop the perfect pancake recipe, and I’ve finally done it! I’ve made these every day this weekend, on both the stove top and the griddle. I’ve not had a bad one yet! They are that evenly golden on both sides.
These can also be made ahead and frozen. You can also turn this into your own mix (instructions below the recipe).
