  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup whole milk or buttermilk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil


  • Preheat the griddle and add a thin layer of oil.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  • Add egg, milk, vanilla and oil. Whisk together just until smooth (don’t overwork the batter). Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer batter to a plastic squeeze bottle (see notes for more options).
  • Add a very small amount of pancake batter, about the size of a dime, to preheated & oiled griddle.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, then flip and continue cooking about 1-2 minutes more.
  • Repeat with remaining batter.


  • Batter should be a thick but pourable consistency. If it's too thick, thin out with 1-2 tablespoons of additional milk.
  • If you don't have a squeeze bottle, use a disposable plastic ziptop bag. Fill the bag, seal and snip a small piece from the corner of the page to squeeze batter through. You can also use a spoon.
  • Optional toppings: maple syrup, mini chocolate chips, berries, sliced bananas, honey, hazelnut spread or yogurt.
  • Nutritional information doesn't include optional toppings.
