1 Classic Pancake Recipes 

When you have no pancake mix and are dying for a fluffy stack of these, this is the recipe that will save the day. You’ll of course need the main ingredients so keep these in stock for when you need pancakes and a mix is just not available: 

  • • all-purpose flour
  • • sugar
  • • baking powder
  • • fresh milk
  • • eggs
  • • butter

If you love these but want to level up the flavor profile, make buttermilk pancakes with the same ingredients but with a big difference: you’ll also need baking soda and you’ll need to learn how to make homemade buttermilk.
