Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

This is a great recipe that I found in my Aunt’s recipe book. Judging from the weathered look of this Good Old Fashioned Pancakes recipe card, this was a family favorite. If you’d like pancakes even faster, make a dry pancake mix from scratch! Simply mix all dry ingredients and store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Then, when you’re ready to make pancakes, just mix in the wet ingredients and you’re ready to go!

Cooking time






  • Wheat Flour (Type 450) – 250gr

  • Sugar – 2-3 tsp

  • Baking Powder – 2 tsp

  • Salt – 1 pinch

  • Egg – 2pcs / Medium

  • Milk – 200 ml

  • Some cooking oil (e.g. sunflower oil)

  • Some maple syrup for garnish

  • Some berries for garnish


  • Mix the flour with the sugar, baking powder and salt. Add eggs and milk and mix everything into a smooth batter. Put some oil in a pan and heat on medium heat. Put 2 tablespoons of batter into each pan. The pancakes should have a diameter of about 10 cm.
  • Bake each pancake for about 2 minutes until small bubbles form, then turn and bake on the other side as long. Garnish American pancakes with berries and maple syrup and serve.


  • Perk up boxed pancake mix by adding a dash of baking soda, lemon juice, vanilla and sugar. For maple flavor, add a small splash of maple syrup to the pancake batter. For a sweet-and-spicy touch, sprinkle some vanilla and cinnamon into the batter.
