Can I make pancakes from scratch?

I have been reading  Amy’s Notebook Experiments for several years now. I am very excited to be able to participate in an experiment today. Last week on  The Notebook, Amy highlighted these old-fashioned homemade pancakes from My Wooden Spoon. I have been wanted to make pancakes from scratch for a long time, I usually buy the pancake mix at Aldi’s.

First I mixed the dry ingredients


Then I mixed the milk and oil


Added the wet ingredients to the dry, then added the egg


After I mixed them, they were a little thin, so I just added a couple finger pinches of flour


 My Wooden Spoon cook suggests not having your griddle to hot, because they won’t cook evenly in the middle, so I turned the heat down to about 300 on my electric griddle. Of course, I added blueberrys to mine.


These pancakes were the best pancakes I have ever had! They are light and fluffy, and not heavy. They are definately a keeper.


Thank you to My Wooden Spoon and MomAdvice for sharing!

    My hubby is generally the pancake “cooker” in our house, usually on weekends. One day he realized we were out of pancake and baking mix, so I told him we would just make some from scratch. He was amazed and impressed that I could do such a thing! (I confess that I had to looked up a recipe the first time to get the general proportions right, but now I can whip them up in a flash!)

    Oh I love homemade pancakes. I never make any other kind now :) Add a touch of vanilla, and they really spruce up! I usually bake mine at 350 on the electric griddle which works out well. And I’m with you on adding extra flour to mine. I don’t like them too thin either!

    The pancakes look great, especially the blueberry ones. I really miss Indiana blueberries, big and juicy. My family used to pick blueberries in the summer. Pancake recipe looks easy. I’ll have to try it.

    I like pancakes made from scratch much better than from a mix, although I will use it in a pinch.
