Everyday Pancakes

Everyday Pancakes are simple enough to make EVERYDAY. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I typed pancake recipe in google a few weeks ago and Mark Bittman’s Everyday Pancake recipe from the NY Times popped up first, followed by thousands of other pancake recipes. The internet is just BURSTING with information, isn’t it! Where to start??! A quick glance at the ingredients (no buttermilk! which I never have!) and a 5-star rating made this recipe a no brainer. Made the pancakes. Loved them and my child is so grateful for my google searches, I am sure of it.

A week later, I used the recipe to make pancakes (again!) for Cooper’s sleepover. It’s in the rotation, folks!

The pancakes are light and fluffy. The batter is really so easy to whip up. I don’t know why I relied heavily on pancake mix all of these years when I usually find most of these ingredients in my kitchen.

I’m pretty close to memorizing the proportions and we all know that’s probably the best sign of a well-loved recipe. Make sure you pin this one for the future!

Everyday Pancakes

.

serves 4-6

recipe slightly adapted from NY Times

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, optional
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted and cooled butter, plus unmelted butter for cooking, or use neutral oil

Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat. In a bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Beat eggs into 1 1/2 cups milk, then stir in 2 tablespoons melted cooled butter and vanilla.  Gently stir this mixture into dry ingredients, mixing only enough to moisten flour; don’t worry about a few lumps. If batter seems thick, add a little more milk.

Place a teaspoon or 2 of butter or oil on griddle or skillet. When butter foam subsides or oil shimmers, ladle batter onto griddle or skillet, making pancakes of any size you like. Adjust heat as necessary; usually, first batch will require higher heat than subsequent batches. Flip pancakes after bubbles rise to surface and bottoms brown, after 2 to 4 minutes.

Cook until second side is lightly browned. Serve, or hold on an ovenproof plate in a 200-degree oven for up to 15 minutes.

    These are my son’s favorite pancake. My husband and I prefer Ruth Reichl’s super thin pancakes, though with less salt than her recipe calls for. Bittman’s got some great recipes! I love his books.

      I love super thin pancakes. Gotta check hers out! xo

      • Kristin

        I hope you like them. It calls for 1 teaspoon of salt, and we’ve switched it to 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt.

  • Danielle Jude

    Sleepover + pancakes = mom goals!

  • Natalie R.

    I love that little graphic with the amounts SO MUCH! If every recipe I pinned was set up like that I’d be in organized heaven.

  • Beth

    I freakin love pancakes! Making pancakes was a ritual between my dad and I growing up, and there’s still nothing better then spending Sunday morning making a big stack of pancakes. I’m excited to try this recipe on Sunday!

  • Emily

    I am craving pancakes so bad now- definitely making these this weekend! My favorite pancake recipe is from Marion Cunningham’s The Breakfast Book- the buttermilk pancakes from there are so easy and delicious, but like you, I rarely have buttermilk in my fridge. Btw- I LOVE the recipe doodle!!

  • Shannan

    They look good! I use a Nigella Lawson recipe for making your own pancake mix (flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar). We store it in a big jar with the recipe on it and when it’s pancake time, we just measure it out and add some melted butter, an egg and cup of milk. They work every time.

    A secret step in making awesome pancakes is to let the mixture sit for a couple of hours in the fridge (or if you are having for breakfast – overnight). Savoury pancakes are a go-to meal in our house – add bacon and parsley to the mix. Better in a thinner pancake – was daughter’s birthday dinner request!

    Love, love, love pancakes. And it always reminds me going to a Diner. Funny, isn’t it?
    Btw- if you ever want to have buttermilk and don’t have any: try milk and lemon juice (a tablespoon should be enough).
    And if I am missing an egg and have bananas at home it is also a great substitute. Or take 1 banana an 1 egg. My kids love it.

    I couldn’t wait until Sunday to make these, so pancakes for my Friday and they were so good!

    Amazing. Thank you so much

    […] everyday pancakes for your morning. […]

    Love the sketch of the ingredients. Hope you’re having pancakes this morning!

    YES to memorizing your pancake recipe … It makes me feel like a breakfast wizard. My recipe is based on the buckwheat pancakes in Molly Wizenberg’s book A Homemade Life. I make pancakes at least once a week and buttermilk is always in my fridge.

    Your little recipe drawing reminds me of a cookbook I used when I was a kid that’s my mom’s from when she was a kid. All the recipes have little drawings for the ingredients list. I used to love just reading the cookbook and looking at all the little drawings. :)
