Easy Kid Recipe

Basic Pancake Recipe


  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Add the milk, melted butter and egg in a mixing bowl and lightly beat.

2. Sift together the remaining ingredients.

3. Add to the milk mixture.

4. Stir just enough to dampen the flour.

5. Add more milk, if necessary, to make the batter as thick as heavy cream.

To cook:

Test the griddle or frying pan for correct heat by sprinkling a few drops of water over it. They will "dance" when it is right.

Heat the griddle or frying pan over moderate heat.

Grease lightly with butter. Use a 1/4 cup measure to dip the batter onto the griddle or pan.

Pour into a heart-shaped pancake mold.Cook until the cakes are full of bubbles and the undersurface is nicely browned. Lift with a pancake turner or spatula and brown the other side. Serve immediately with plenty of butter and warm maple syrup.
