Simplest Pancake Recipe

Pancakes are a favourite with the kids at home and adults like me as well. 🙂 They are actually quite easy to rustle up if you have the ingredients at home. They get done very quickly too. And the best part is that this is a very versatile recipe. You can make so many variations with this basic pancake. I will share those in the tips. Meanwhile, here is the simplest pancake recipe:

Makes 8 pancakes

simplest pancake recipe


Mix the dry ingredients together. Then mix the wet ingredients together. Now when you wish to make the pancakes, add the wet mixture to the dry mix and gently mix with a fork. Do not overmix or the batter will lose its air and become flat. Let the batter be of thick, runny consistency.

Heat a pan. Brush some butter on it. Now pour one ladle batter on the pan. Do not spread. Let it cook on one side till bubbles form. It takes about a minute on hot pan. Now flip and cook on the other side for the same till till golden brown.

Remove and serve hot with maple syrup. Isn’t this the simplest pancake recipe?

Here is a video of the same recipe:


  1. You can add choco chips, nuts, even other ingredients like pumpkin puree to this batter.
  2. For serving, you can substitute maple syrup with honey or chocolate sauce. Also can serve fresh fruit like bananas, strawberries, kiwis etc. as per taste

This is really simple to cook. Do make them at home. Let me know if you try the recipe.
