Who doesn’t love pancakes in the morning before going off to work or school? These delicious vanilla pancakes are thick and make great belly-warmers for when the weather gets cold.

Yield: 18 pancakes, about

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk, cold or room temperature
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In medium bowl, add eggs, milk, flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and vanilla. Mix by hand or electric mixer.

  2. Drop batter by the 1/4 cup onto hot, greased skillet or griddle. Cook until bubbles form on top side, then flip pancake over and brown the other side. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

  3. These pancakes can be frozen for a quick, morning breakfast. Just allow the pancakes to cool completely and place them, separated with wax paper, in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 6 weeks.

Great savoury and sweet!, Member Noryale

I made these today and they came out just fine! I added just a tad bit more sugar and flour (very little) as I found the batter a bit too runny and not sweet enough, but I guess that's my personal taste. Some of us had them with bacon and scrambled egg, others had it with butter/honey/lemon & sugar. Saved some in the freezer for when I'm feeling lazy.
