Homemade Pancakes Recipe Tips

  • FLOUR: We prefer these pancakes with all purpose flour, but this recipe also works well whole wheat flour or a combination of both.
  • MILK: I usually use 2% milk, but I have also used whole milk, oat milk, almond milk and condensed milk.
  • BUTTER: I use melted salted butter. I have also used vegetable oil, and melted coconut oil when I don’t have butter…melted coconut oil is SO delicious, but note that the pancakes will have a slight coconut flavour.
  • VARIATIONS: Here are some tasty flavour options:
    • BLUEBERRY PANCAKES: You can also add frozen or fresh blueberries to the batter to make blueberry pancakes.
    • APPLE PANCAKES: You can add 1/4 cup chopped apples to the batter to make them apple pancakes.
    • BANANA PANCAKES: Stir in 1 mashed banana into the batter. Then serve with peanut butter. Yum.
    • CHOCOLATE CHIPS: Add 1/4 – 1/2 cup chocolate chips (we love 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips).
  • MIXING: Don’t over mix the pancake batter! Lightly mix so you end up with fluffy pancakes!
  • LET THE BATTER SIT: After mixing the ingredients together let the batter sit for about 10 minutes. It should be a bubbly and thick batter.
  • DOUBLE IT: If you want a big batch to feed a crowd feel free to double or triple the recipe.
  • LEFTOVERS: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  • REHEATING: Reheat any leftover pancakes in the toaster or toaster oven.
  • FREEZING: The cooked pancakes freeze well. Store in an airtight container or ziplock freezer bag in the freezer for up to 2 months. See my handy tip for freezing crepes that’s also useful for freezing pancakes!
  • SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve with a fresh fruit salad and bacon or sausages.
