Good, Bad, and Yummy Pancakes


I found a recipe here that I ended up changing so much it hardly resembled what I started out with, and my family LOVED them. I thought it would be a nice addition. These pancakes are a blend of good and not-so-good-for-you ingredients, hence the name.

8 servings


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (Optional)

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.

  2. Pour milk and vanilla extract into the well; add beaten eggs. Mix wet and dry ingredients together until smooth.

  3. Grease a skillet with oil and heat over medium heat.

  4. Pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake into the hot skillet; cook until bottom is golden brown and there are many small pinholes in the top of the pancake, about 2 minutes. Flip pancake and continue cooking until golden brown and the middle of the pancake is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet with oil between pancakes as needed.
