Easy Homemade Pancakes | Delish D'Lites

Have you ever woken up on a weekend morning craving pancakes, only to find that you’re out of pancake mix?  Trust me, I’ve been there.  That is, until I decided that I’d no longer be a prisoner to the Bisquick box! When your pantry is well stocked, you can whip up scratch-made pancakes in no time, and you can control everything in your food, which is always a plus in my book.  These easy homemade pancakes are foolproof, very basic, and makes the perfect, fluffy pancakes!  And the best part? It’s just as easy to put together as opening the box of pancake mix.  So next time you’re craving pancakes but don’t have any mix at home, whip up this recipe.  I’ll bet you’ll never buy boxed pancake mix again!

ingredients1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
2 whole extra large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Maple syrup and butter, for serving

directions

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

In another bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, and vanilla extract (if using).

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and whisk until just combined. It’s OK if batter is a little lumpy. Let it rest for 10 minutes.

Leave each pancake alone until edges start to turn golden and little bubbles form on top.Then, using a spatula, give it a quick, steady flip.  Once you flip the pancake, cook for 30-60 seconds more, or until puffed up and golden brown.
