Classic Pancakes

Course: Breakfast


  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil avocado or will vegetable work
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp almond extract vanilla extract will work


  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon) making a well in the center
  • In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk, cooking oil, and almond extract
  • Add the egg mixture all at once to the dry mixture- stir until mositened, batter will be lumpy
  • Heat a griddle or nonstick pan over medium high heat, pour or scoop the batter using a measuring cup (I used 1/4 measuring cup) to help keep them the same size
  • Pro tip: use the lid of a mason jar lid (face down), spraying it liberally, as a mold to keep all the pancakes similar in the size
