Since my children were small, this homemade pancake recipe has been a favorite in our kitchen. Made with kitchen staples like flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, eggs, and butter, the pancakes have the perfect texture — fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. While they’re delicious on their own, you can customize them with your favorite add-ins. For a special treat, I used chocolate chips to top them when my children were younger. Now that they’re older, I sometimes add blueberries (these banana and pumpkin variations are delicious, too). Once you taste try from-scratch pancakes, you’ll never look at boxed mixes the same way again. Homemade pancakes can be made in no time at all and are delicious.

What You’ll Need To Make the best Homemade Pancake recipe
Combine the flour and baking powder with the sugar and salt in one bowl.
Combine the eggs with milk in a bowl.
Combine the milk mixture and the melted Butter in a bowl.
Just enough flour to moisten the mixture. The mixture should be a little lumpy. The pancakes may look a little too dense if you overwork it.
