Fluffy Old Fashioned Pancakes

To be honest, I have no idea what the difference is between a regular pancake and an old fashioned pancake. It tasted the same as a normal pancake, but maybe I just couldn’t tell because I rarely eat pancakes!

This was my first time making pancakes NOT from a mix, and it’s definitely worth it! Easy, simple ingredients, and you know exactly what ingredients you’re putting into it. It’s so simple and easy that buying a mix just isn’t worth the money. Give this a try! 🙂

INGREDIENTS: I made 6 pancakes using this recipe

  • 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking power (not baking soda!)
  • 1 1/2 tsp white sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp milk (room temp or slightly microwaved)
  • 1/2 egg (I cracked the egg into a separate bowl, mixed, and used about half of the mixture)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil
  • Maple syrup or pancake syrup
  • More butter for the top if you want


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a large bowl
  2. Flour, baking powder, salt, sugar

    Flour, baking powder, salt, sugar

  3. Mix together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract (do not over-beat the eggs! just mix until combined)
  4. Melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, milk

    Melted butter, egg, vanilla extract, milk

  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients just until well incorporated. It is okay if there are a few lumps as long as you do not over-mix
  6. Heat a fry pan on low with oil and add 1/4 cup of the batter on the pan
  7. Wait for big bubbles to form and pop on the top of the pancake
  8. When you can see that the center of the pancake is no longer runny by looking through a popped bubble, it is ready to flip. Other signs to flip are slightly cooked edges and lots of large bubbles

  12. You can also top this with berries, other fruit, or powdered sugar. Also goes wonderfully with bacon and eggs 🙂
