Grandad's Pancakes

This secret family recipe for granddad's homemade pancakes was passed down from my grandfather. He fed a family of 7 (including 4 growing boys!) on these breakfast treats, and refused to give anyone the recipe until he finally relinquished it to my mother (his daughter-in-law) before he passed away. It is a long-standing family favorite!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk, at room temperature

  • 1 egg, at room temperature

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 2 teaspoons oil, or as needed

Directions

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; make a 'well' in the center of the flour mixture. Pour milk, egg, and 1 tablespoon oil into the well. Mix until well moistened.

  2. Place a griddle over medium-high heat; sprinkle a few drops of water onto the griddle. If the droplets bounce, the griddle is ready; add 2 teaspoons oil.

  3. Spoon batter onto the griddle; cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 3 to 5 more minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.
