Is it worth it to make pancakes at home or should you buy a mix? Here’s the breakdown!


1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted


1) Whisk together dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Add in egg, milk, buttermilk, and melted butter and whisk. Batter should be thick, but very pourable. Feel free to add a little more milk to adjust.

2) Use a 1/3 cup measuring cup to pour batter onto a pre-heated griddle or skillet over medium heat. Lightly oil/butter the skillet before cooking.

3) Cook pancakes until they start to bubble a bit on the surface, about 3-4 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Serve pancakes while warm with extra butter and maple syrup.
