  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg


  1. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. This helps to combine everything evenly and makes your pancakes fluffier.
  2. Add Wet Ingredients: Make a well in the center of your dry ingredients. Pour in the milk, melted butter, and egg. Mix everything together until your pancake batter is smooth. It’s okay if there are a few lumps – they won’t hurt the final product.
  3. Preheat Your Pan: Heat a griddle or a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Lightly oil the surface to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  4. Cook the Pancakes: Pour or scoop about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot griddle for each pancake. Watch for bubbles to form on the surface and for the edges to look set, which takes about 2 to 3 minutes. Then, flip the pancakes with a spatula and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes on the other side, until they are golden brown.
  5. Serve Warm: Serve your old-fashioned pancakes hot off the griddle with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, or a dollop of whipped cream.

These Old Fashioned Pancakes are not just a meal; they’re a comforting experience that brings warmth and joy to your dining table. Enjoy the fluffy texture, the golden edges, and the delicious taste that comes from a recipe passed down through generations. Perfect for gathering friends and family on a sunny morning, these pancakes promise to start your day off right.
