Martha Stewart’s Pancakes

Martha Stewart's Pancakes - The First Year Blog #EasyPancakes

Martha was right on the money when she came up with this recipe.. it’s the only pancake recipe I use! 

1 cup all-purpose flour, leveled
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1 cup milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Dash of vanilla

Plus assorted toppings, such as butter, maple syrup, confectioners’ sugar, honey, jams, preserves, sweetened whipped cream, or chocolate syrup.

Yields about 15 good sized pancakes if you use 2 tablespoons of batter per cake.

In a bowl, whisk together the milk, oil, egg, and vanilla. Add all of the dry ingredients to the milk mixture and whisk just until incorporated (small lumps are fine!). Heat a large skillet to medium heat and spray the pan before adding batter. In fact, I sprayed the pan each time before adding more batter. For each pancake, spoon 2 tablespoons of batter into the skillet. I used a pretty large skillet, so I could cook 3 pancakes at a time.

Cook until the surface of pancakes have some bubbles, or about 2-3 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve warm, with desired toppings.

No adapation, coming straight from Martha herself!

Basic Pancakes that are amazing - The First Year Blog #EasyPancakes

I am still not checking any blog related statistics, although I did contemplate asking my husband to look, but then I decided I would try and wriggle out details from him. If you want the back story, you can see why here and here. But I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I didn’t say I am excited to check them on Easter!

    Pancakes are a funny bunch ~ I have never found any that truly wowed me … I’ll have to give these a shot. I like basic, plain pancakes but I want them to have flavor!

    Your pancakes look just mouthwatering! Love the photos! I am a big fan of Martha Stewart, I know some are not, but I will admit that I am. I will be pinning this recipe and will give it a try this Sunday for a big family breakfast!

    I saw this post on the Tuesday Talent Show linky party. I’d love for you to check out a recipe I linked up too, it’s perfect for Pi Day tomorrow- it’s a traditional Polish Apple Pie called Szarlotka but with less sugar than original. Hope you have a great rest of your day, dear! :)

    These sound really good — Martha’s usually spot on! Like your Lenten decision and the reasons you gave to achieve the right balance. Thanks for sharing on Busy Monday!
