A typical American breakfast usually consists of eggs, sausage, or bacon. An item that also finds its way to the table is the pancake, the mixture of basic cooking ingredients that create a soft fluffy thin cake. This common, yet delicious, breakfast item reminds us of our youth, bringing us back to the days when our parents would cook up a hot stack of fresh pancakes for a Saturday morning breakfast.

A pancake is simple meal to create. The ingredients needed to cook up this tasty dish are:

  • 2 cups of all purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon  salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs

flour and four eggs

Put all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar) in a large bowl. Crack in the 2 eggs, and pour in the milk. Mix the batter until smooth, getting rid of all the chunks. You can also add in your favorite fruits, nuts, or candies into the batter, making it delicious to your heart’s content


Heat a lightly oiled griddle or flat bottomed frying pan over a medium high heat. Pour a medium sized scoop (approx. 1/4 cup) of batter on to the griddle. Let the pancake brown on one side. You will know when to flip the pancake when air bubbles start to appear on the top of the uncooked side. Check out the video of proper pancake flipping.
