Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes

Pancakes…not just for Breakfast anymore! At least a couple times a month we serve breakfast for dinner, and often serve a big brunch on Sunday mornings. With National Pancake Day next week, we thought it was a perfect time to share some delicious recipes for Pancakes!

Today we are sharing our recipe for Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes, they are light, fluffy and can be paired with just about any type of fruit, syrup or even fruit syrup like our Blueberry Syrup. It reminds me of the pancakes that my Mom made for us often, while growing up.

During the busy school year, we often make up several batches of the Homemade Pancakes, and store the dry ingredients in sealed bags.

Simply mix the dry ingredients and place in resealable bags, mark on the bag with a Sharpie the wet ingredients that need to be added. Then grab a bag of mix, add the wet ingredients and whip up some delicious Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes for breakfast…or even dinner!

After making Pancakes last weekend, Doug quickly decided that we needed to share the recipe. You see my chicken scratch on a piece of paper? It’s much easier to have it on the blog then on this little piece of paper.

These are so easy, the kids could even make you breakfast in bed!

  4. This is a great idea, packaging the mix like this! Nothing like good old fashioned pancakes!

  5. What kind of oil?

  6. I made these the other day, and I really love this recipe. Thanks for sharing.

    • So glad you liked them Dee! Thanks for stopping by and letting us know!

      • Hi, love this my grandson spends the night and in the morning his favorite is pancakes so i made them had some leftover so i froze them and the next weekend warmed them up tasted just like the first time so they freeze very well. Thx

  7. I’m wondering do you need to use Self Rising Flour? I just tried these with All Purpose and they do not look fluffy like yours in the picture.

  8. My son and i made these and added chocolate chips :) absolutely amazing recipe!! We will never buy Bisquick again :)

  9. This recipe is fantastic!!I made it for brunch with my girlfriends and they all loved them. These pancakes are so tasty, you will skip IHOP all together. Thank you for sharing!

  10. My 3year old son loves theses i used cinn sugar instead and i put sweet potato puree and some mixed berrys on top and he loved it!!!! theses are so good!!!

  11. These did not work for us. Maybe too much baking powder? I followed the recipe to a “t”. I had to revert to my old recipe right after.

    • Hi Sheila, sorry you had trouble with the pancake recipe. I have made it hundreds and hundreds of times and never had trouble.

  12. Made these added some nutmeg,omitted the oil was fab Ty for sharing

  13. ..what kind of milk?
    ..is it okey if I use the milk powder solution?
    ..thanks :-)

    • Hi there, you can certainly try the pancakes with milk powder solution. I don’t think they will taste the same though. We use 2% milk, but you can also use skim, whole or buttermilk.

  22. I am just making it right now, mmm, it is delicious!

    Just made these for the kids this morning and they were super yummy and fluffy! I made a double batch and used 1 cup of white flour and 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I used lactose free milk as well. The kids and I loved them….such a great alternative to the box stuff.

  24. Kiddos wanted pancakes this morning and we discovered we’d hit the bottom of our box mix. So I decided to try from scratch and found this recipe. They were delicious! So much better than the box! We will be doing homemade from now on! One question though is that the batter ended up being very thick so I added additional milk. My kids were helping so I wonder if they didn’t measure the flour out correctly or something but thought I’d check if it’s supposed to be a thicker batter. My fear was that they wouldn’t spread on the griddle and cook through properly had I not added more milk.

    • Hi Amanda, so glad you liked them. The batter is a bit thick, but adding milk to get the consistency you want is perfect. And I’m so excited the kids could help you!
      Happy Cooking!

  25. Elizabeth A says:

    Needed a good, quick pancake recipe and this was delicious! Added cinnamon and used applesauce in place of the oil and they were FANTASTIC! So easy to make and they were nice and fluffy.

    • Hi Elizabeth, so glad you like the Pancake Recipe! Adding applesauce and cinnamon is a great idea!

  26. After many failed pancake recipes, this one is perfect. The only change I make is 1 cup milk. Thank you so much!!!

  27. I woke up this morning craving pancakes, and came across this recipe on Pinterest. Just took my first bite and OH.MY.GOODNESS. So delicious!!!!!!!! This recipe was amazingly easy to follow and the outcome was out of this world! Bonus points that all the ingredients were already in my cupboard and I didn’t have to leave my apartment on this gloomy day. Thanks!!!!!!
