Easy Homemade Pancakes


I make pancakes a lot and love to try different recipes. Some are great and some not so great. This recipe is super easy (just as easy as a mix) and it's my "usual". Everybody loves it.

We often have lots of "extra" teenage boys around the house for Saturday morning breakfast and this is a quick (and cheap) way to feed a crowd. I usually double this recipe.

1 cup sifted self-rising flour (must be self-rising flour or the recipe will not work) I'll also tell you a secret...I rarely sift and the pancakes turn out fine. No guarantees though! :)
1 cup milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Beat egg, oil and milk together; add to flour. Stir just until combined. Pour 1/4 cup batter on a hot buttered griddle. Turn with a spatula when bubbles begin to form on top. Cook second side until golden brown.

I also use self-rising flour in my biscuit recipe.

Can't wait to try it...I also printed off your biscuit recipe mentioned here...because I am a BISCUIT LOSER! (Reminds me of Alan Jackson's song..."Where I come from")! I am going to try biscuits your way and I betcha I'm successful this time!

Vanilla extract in pancakes? I've never tried that. I just might have to sneak it in for Saturday morning pancakes and see if anyone notices.
