• Buttermilk Pancakes. Substitute 1 cup buttermilk for the milk. Decrease amount of baking powder to 1 teaspoon and add ½ teaspoon baking soda.
• Whole Wheat Pancakes. Substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour. Substitute brown sugar for granulated sugar.
• Buckwheat Pancakes. Substitute ½ cup buckwheat flour and ½ cup whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour.
• Apple Pancakes. Stir ½ cup chopped apple into batter.
• Blueberry Pancakes. Stir ½ cup blueberries into batter. Or add them as you go – after the first side cooks, drop a few blueberries onto the uncooked side; flip and continue cooking.
• Broccoli Pancakes. Stir ½ cup finely chopped broccoli into batter.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir with a spoon or whisk until batter is smooth.
  3. Heat non-stick griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pan is ready when a few drops of water bounce around.
  4. Pour batter from a large spoon (about 1/4 cup per pancake); turn when puffed and full of bubbles, cooking second side until golden brown.
  5. With a spatula, lift pancake from the griddle to a serving plate.

Yields about 10 servings (One 4-inch pancake per serving)
