My kids love pancakes, but are quite the food critics when it comes to this breakfast of choice. I’ve tried many pancake recipes, but the below Old Fashioned Pancake recipe by Chef John on All Recipes has turned out to be our family’s favorite.
Amore family pancake serving trick for less mess: I pour some syrup into a child’s bowl or shallow mug and give each child a whole pancake for dunking. This method is much easier for little hands and kids love dunking (think chicken nuggets or hummus & veggies).

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 egg
Cook time: 20 minutes
- Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.
- Whisk in melted butter, egg, and milk until combined. Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
- Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Spray with cooking spray (or do as I do and melt a tablespoon of butter and a little bit of canola oil in a pan for delectable pancakes). Pour batter into the hot skillet, about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until bubbles appear on the sides and center of each pancake. Flip and cook until golden, about 1 to 2 minutes.
