Cloud-Like Pancakes

IMG_0010

I don’t know about your family, but mine loves pancakes. For the first few years of my marriage, I used to buy the premixed kind the you “just add water and shake”. But, when I started really getting into frugality several years ago, I started to really learn how to cook, and one of the things I wanted to make was pancakes from scratch. I tried several recipes, but none really said “these are the ones I want to make for my family”, know what I mean? That is, until I found this one on Frugal Families. These pancakes are light and fluffy and always turn out. Sometimes they might not rise as well as others (maybe somebody added too much liquid?), but they always taste really good, AND the freeze well! I love to keep these on hand in the freezer, especially during the school year. They make for a quick “grab-n-go” breakfast. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

Cloud-Like Pancakes

1 c. white flour
2 Tbs sugar
2 Tbs baking powder (yes this is tablespoons)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
2 Tbs oil
3/4 c. milk (I usually use buttermilk)

Combine dry ingredients. Add egg, oil and milk. Batter will be bubbly and foamy.

  1. I am definitely trying this! Since the grocery store stopped carrying my favorite "mix," I have tried another recipe for making pancakes from scratch, but it just isn't cutting it. This is very timely – thanks!!

  3. I always used Bisquick until we ran out one day and I made a from-scratch recipe. It's not much harder and they are SO delicious. I like to add bananas or chocolate chips, too!A great frugal meal!

  4. We LOVE pancakes, and these look amazing. In fact, we make our own at home, but I actually bought a box of that just-add-water type for our recent camping trip, and they were very fluffy compared to my homemade version. I need to try yours to emulate the fluffy-ness.
