I woke up this morning with pancakes on the brain. I’m usually partial to crepes vs pancakes, but today, after seeing the gorgeous tiny organic strawberries I received in my Bracco Farms CSA box, I wanted pancakes with Quebec maple syrup and strawberries.
This is the simplest pancake recipe of all times with just a few dry ingredients mixed with wet ones easily available at home….no fancy buttermilk, ricotta pancakes….just solid, easy-to-make pancakes the whole family will enjoy.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
- 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, egg and butter. Add the dry ingredients in the milk mixture and whisk until just moistened with a few lumps – do not overmix.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Add ½ tablespoon oil and warm for 30 seconds.
- Add about ¼ cup batter for each pancake. You should be able to fit 2 pancakes in a large skillet.
- Cook until the surface of pancakes has some bubbles and a few have burst, about 1 minute. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the second side, about another minute.
- Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm while cooking the rest of the pancakes.
- Continue with more oil and remaining batter.
- Serve with berries and pure maple syrup.
