Pancakes for a Scrumptious Morning

Pancakes for a Scrumptious Morning

One of my favorite things in the world is a lazy Sunday morning: sleeping in (ok, to be honest, this doesn’t really exist anymore with two babies at home), morning cuddles with the little ones, a steaming mug full of coffee... and pancakes for breakfast! Here is one of my favorite recipes, courtesy of King Arthur Baking Company. I hope you enjoy it! 

The Recipe: Simply Perfect Pancakes 

Total Time: 45 mins 

Yield: 1 dozen large pancakes 


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups (283g) milk*
  • 3 tablespoons (43g) melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 cups (184g) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons (25g) sugar or 1/4 cup (35g) malted milk powder


  1. Beat the eggs and milk until light and foamy, about 3 minutes at high speed of a stand or hand mixer. Stir in the butter or vegetable oil.
  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together to evenly distribute the salt, baking powder and sweetener.
  3. Gently and quickly mix into the egg and milk mixture. Let the batter rest for at least 15 minutes, while the griddle is heating; it'll thicken slightly.
  4. Heat a heavy frying pan over medium heat, or set an electric griddle to 375°F. Lightly grease frying pan or griddle. The pan or griddle is ready if a drop of water will skitter across the surface, evaporating immediately.
  5. Drop 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the lightly greased griddle. Bake on one side until bubbles begin to form and break, about 2 minutes; then turn the pancakes and cook the other side until brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn over only once. Serve immediately.
