Homemade Pancakes

If you’re anything like us, your weekend mornings are spent in pajamas with cups of coffee and mucho laziness… whipping up these pancakes is the perfect fit for those lazy mornings!

Homemade Pancakes are pretty much the perfect weekend food.

Simple and quick… and perfectly fluffy.  Stacked tall with cold butter and real maple syrup (and crispy bacon). It’s almost the only reason to get out of bed on a Saturday!

How to Make Pancake Mix for Homemade Pancakes

Homemade Pancakes don’t take many ingredients.  You’ll simply take some dry ingredients and combine them with butter, eggs and milk… voila, pancakes.

Making a homemade pancake mix just means keeping the right ratios of dry ingredients ready to go. You’ll simply scoop some mix, add some wet ingredients and you’re on your way to fluffy pancake perfection in minutes.

Buying and preparing all of your own foods is the single easiest way to ensure that you know exactly what your family is eating.  It is also a great way to save money on groceries!  Most pre-made baking mixes are typically simply mixtures of very simple, common dry baking ingredients.  You can make your own cake, bread and other mixes and get delicious and cheap baked goods but, today, let’s discuss pancake mixes. This homemade pancake mix is easy to whip up and is a great way to save on the budget.

What Makes Pancakes Fluffy?

To make sure your homemade pancakes are perfectly fluffy here are a few of my fave tips:

  • Use fresh ingredients – Believe it or not, old ingredients can make your pancakes fall flat (especially baking powder).
  • Do not overmix – A few lumps are not only ok, they’re required!
  • Grease your pan with oil – You’ll want a well-greased pan and butter can burn.
  • Flip when bubbles pop – as soon as the bubbles pop, you ‘ll want to flip your pancakes.

Get ready to make healthier, more budget-friendly pancakes that your kids and the whole family will love!  The best part is that once you have this homemade pancake mix in the cupboard, these are on the table in just a few minutes!  Breakfast for dinner anyone?

Ta da!  Totally homemade, delicious and healthy pancakes!  You will save money and feel really good about what you are feeding your family.  The more you control what goes into your foods, the healthier and happier you (and your wallet) will be.

  1. This is a solid recipe. Pancakes browned well because of the sugar.

    One note. Add the butter, egg, and SLOWLY add the milk. Depending on how high the humidity in your areas is, you may not need the full amount of milk. Don’t just dump it it all in at once with any recipe like this though. Or you’ll end up with heartbreak sometimes. :)4 stars

  2. It’s New Year morning and decided to try this recipe Homemade Pancakes! It was delicious! Followed the recipe except I used buttermilk and they turned out exactly like your photo! Added sliced bananas and roasted pecans! I give this recipe 5 ⭐️‘S!5 stars

  3. I used this recipe to make blueberry waffles on CHRISTmas day. Absolutely love it. The waffles were really light and had a great flavor however I did add a smidgen of pure vanilla to the mix. The mix was not too watery like some mentioned they came out perfect. Good buy box hello from scratch.5 stars

  4. this pancake mix is wonderful! I’ve made the mix itself multiple times and it always turns out great. Not sure why it’s runny for others-it’s actually thick for me and I sometimes have to add just a touch more liquid. I have always used buttermilk instead of milk so not sure if that’s the difference. I do have a question though: can I use this for waffles and if so, do I make them any different? Thanks again for a wonderful recipe.5 stars

    1. While this can certainly be cooked in a waffle iron it won’t provide the same texture that you would get with a traditional waffle recipe. Waffles are a bit more light on the inside and crisp on the outside, pancake batter tends to be more spongey. They’ll still taste great I’m sure!

  5. All I could taste was baked soda… I’ve never put baking soda in pancakes. Powder yes… soda no. Both ABSOLUTELY NOT its all you can taste. And it was very runny and the more you add to make it not runny, it taste more like baking soda! I’d use this recipe with out the baking soda.

  6. these rule and are delicious

    also to anyone who says it’s “too runny” LOL adjust to your liking it’s called cooking :)5 stars

  7. I don’t know what happened, but a cup of the pancake mix with a cup of milk and an egg made the mix so runny that I had crepes, not pancakes. I had to add at least a half cup flour and more baking powder. I know I measured it correctly because I have this one cup mixes all separated in individual Ziploc bags. Just took out another one to put sure it was a cup and it was. They tasted fine after that, which is why I gave three stars instead of one, but I don’t understand how everyone else didn’t get runny batter, as well, with the same measurements.3 stars

    1. Oh no, how disappointing. I can’t say for sure why this didn’t work out for you Colleen, we made this recipe again this morning and it seemed to be fine for us. You could certainly add a little bit extra pancake mix if needed.

  8. This recipe delivers basic, fluffy and lovely pancakes! Only addition I made was to add two teaspoons of vanilla. We set-up a “pancake bar” for my kids, with bowls of cut fruit and chocolate chips as toppings. A big hit! Thank you!!5 stars

  9. I should have read the comments first. I followed the recipe exactly and the batter was extremely runny. I had to add 1.5x the dry ingredients to get something resembling pancake mix.1 star

  10. Perfect go-to recipe. Texture, colour.. excellent. They were so good I didn’t reduce the sugar, which is a standard for me. Last minute pancakes are now, a thing around here.5 stars

  11. I’d like to add buttermilk powder to the mix. How much would I add, and would I need to add more baking soda. Thanks!

    1. I’ve only tried the recipe as written. Maybe another reader has some ideas for you Victoria!

    2. I add 3 tablespoons buttermilk powder to mine for 2 cups of mix so I would go with 1.5 tbsp for 1 cup. Can’t see why you would need extra baking powder.

      1. Incredibly thin. Mixed twice, the second time with a second person in the room to ensure no mkstakes–same result. Dunno whats up, will add flour and call it a day.2 stars

        1. If you’re finding it too thin for your liking, you can add the milk a little bit at a time to reach desired consistency.

  12. There was way too much flour. The mixture came out like a dough so we added more milk. The pancakes lacked taste and we even added some Vanilla.1 star

  13. Great recipe. Fluffy and tasty. The only changes I made were, I left out the salt and added some vanilla. I will use this recipe again and again.

  14. Thank you for this recipe, this is AMAZING! We’ve tried other recipes, but this is by far our favorite. I’ve substituted regular milk for buttermilk. If we’re out of buttermilk, we make our own using this buttermilk.

    1. Hi May Loo, it should last for a couple months when stored in an airtight container.

    1. Hey Taty! The full recipe is towards the bottom of the post, or you can find it by using the jump to recipe button at the top! Enjoy your pancakes!

  15. Thanks for the simple and delicious recipe! The pancakes came out light and fluffy! I’ll never need to buy store-bought pancake mix ever again.

  16. Hi I love this Place have 4 children and this is a life saver! Just wanted to know what is the serving size for the 152 calorie count? I guessed it was 2 pancakes but I just like to be sure

    1. Hi Linda, that will depend on the size of your pancakes but for us that was per pancake :)

  17. Tried this today and am so thankful for this find. I used buttermilk (1Tbls of white vinegar plus whole milk to make a full cup) and 1 tsp if pure vanilla. This batter was light and fluffy…so lovely. I can see it would hold up to adding blueberries, chocolate chips, or thinly slice bananas as well since the pancake did not fall apart when I dipped it in syrup. I also live the easy economical benefit of knowing what I am feeding my family. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. I do the same! I’m going to try the buttermilk recipe with the addition of the pure vanilla to it. Thanks for the suggestion!

  18. Dry mix pancake recipe
    Where does it say how much milk (buttermilk ) I can use?
    how much dry mix do I need for 8 pancakes?
    How many eggs do I need?
    How much oil do I need?

    1. All of the information is included in the recipe. You can use the jump to recipe button at the top of the page and it will take you right there.

      1. Hello Holly… Maybe I just don’t know what the heck I’m doing. Judging by all of the great comments I guess it’s just me. But when I put your mix together it was so thick that there’s no way it would’ve made a pancake so I added a whole bunch more milk in order for it to pour into the pan they cooked up beautifully and perfectly but tasted like flour.. Nobody in the family would eat more than two or three bites of a pancake.1 star

        1. Hi Gary, the recipe is for a dry pancake mix…then you take only one cup (recipe makes 4 cups of mix) of pancake mix and combine it with the milk and eggs to make pancakes. I hope that helps!

          1. These pancakes are delicious and everyone that I’ve made them for raves about how good they are! Thank you for the recipe!5 stars

  19. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because there is no way that 1 cup of
    Milk is enough for this recipe. It was way to thick to even think about pouring , I actually had to add like 3 cups of milk. I also added vanilla to mine . But as far as the pancake itself wow were they ever so fluffy!! My bf loved them, he doesn’t want me to buy pancake mix anymore he wants me to
    Fix it homemade from this recipe!!4 stars

    1. Hi Teresa, the one cup of milk is for only 1 cup of the pancake mix. The rest is intended to be stored in the pantry. But I am so happy you guys loved them!

    2. The recipe is to store most of the mix for later so you have a quick breakfast next time, it wasn’t intended that you use 1 cup of milk for all the dry ingredients.

  20. Thanks for the easy recipe! Will definitely use again in the future. I’m not the best in the kitchen so I mixed up a tsp for a TSBP since I’m used to reading ingredients being listed in descending order by weight–my bad! Might I suggest a minor change for folks that make silly mistakes like me:

    Dry Pancake Mix

    4 cups all-purpose flour
    3 tablespoons baking powder
    ** 3 tablespoons sugar (moved this so TBSP are together, followed by tsp) **
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt

  21. Please i need your Recipe for Pancake using the bananas with measurements. Thank you very much.

  22. When looking to cook a familiar recipe made from scratch ingredients, Holly provides a sweet approach. However my menu items were lacking versus the author’s suggestions. Fortunately I made the best attempt and found the recipe created Excellent pancake. The house dog and cat both agreed. Thanks Holly!5 stars

  23. Love this recipe, used it to make my nieces and nephew breakfast the other day and they loved it.. I always felt unsure about making pancakes because I rarely make them but this recipe was easy to follow. I even did a substitution with coconut and almond flour for a gluten free version for my brother and they turned out great! Thank you Holly!5 stars

  24. I made them for my son this morning and they were good but he said they taste like too much baking soda. Can you help with this ?4 stars

    1. Hi Tara, You could reduce the baking soda in this recipe but it may cause the pancakes to not be as fluffy.

  25. I found the that using 3/4 cup of milk instead of 1 cup makes the consistency on point and a drop of vanilla makes them super yummy! Best pancakes I’ve ever made in my life doing it that way.

  26. Trying these for the first time… ( breakfast for dinner) the last pancake recipe I tried ended up in the trash so we’ll see how this one ends up. I can’t wait.

  27. We tried to use almond milk and glutten free flour but this recipe asked for way to much flour and we ended up only using half as much. All other recipes online say us half as much, and it turned into dough with just 2 cups of flour. I think the recipe is off.2 stars

    1. Hi Melissa, the four cups of flour is to make the pancake mixture to store in your pantry. Once you have the pancake mixture you only want to combine 1 cup of it with the milk, egg, and butter mentioned. Hope that helps.

  28. Hi is baking soda nicer not baking powder ? I’m in South Africa so bicarbonate is known here as baking soda.await your reply .Kind regards .

    1. Hi Salma, you are correct bicarbonate is another name for baking soda! However, baking soda and powder are quite different. Hope that helps!

    2. Best recipe ever!!!
      I substituted the sugar for 1/2 teaspoon of 100% stevia powder.
      The level of baking soda/powder is very high so can make them taste a little bitter, but I can live with that knowing that it could possibly be due to the substitution above. I’ll test it out when I make the next batch.
      1 cup of mix for me made 4 perfectly sized pancakes. This is great for portion control for a breakfast food, if you cook for a couple this gives 2 each which is a perfect portion.
      I have saved this recipe for future.

      Thanks so much!!5 stars

  29. I’ve not made homemade pancake mix for years and years. I mixed up the first batch with pleasant anticipation. I had wondered about the large amount of baking powder (3 T) and rightfully so. The pancake has a bitter taste. I was able to neutralize it with yogurt. The web lists several acidic options you will have in your home. Your usual griddle temperature will need to be lowered.2 stars

  30. How would you suggest I alter this just a bit so i have waffle mix instead? Maybe add some oil ? Any thoughts?4 stars

  31. This is a great, basic mix for pancakes. I keep a 16 cup supply in a plastic, snap-top container in my pantry and when it is depleted, I fill it up again! Sometimes I use 1/2 C this mix and 1/2 C multigrain pancake mix for 5-6 pancakes for a change of texture; sometimes I add vanilla or almond or orange extract; sometimes I mix in blueberries or lay slices of banana on top of each cooking pancake before I flip them. Sometimes I add crumbled bacon or shredded carrots! Variety IS the spice of life – experiment!
    A TIP to avoid runny batter, as some reviewers have experienced: Look carefully at your liquid measuring cup. Some of them are really larger than 1 cup and should not be filled to the top of the container, There is a line painted on the glass or plastic that is the 1 cup line. Fill only to that line, even if there is room for more liquid in the measuring container. Also, do not use any other kind of measuring container – like a coffee cup – unless you know that it holds exactly 1 cup.

  32. I did not have enough pancake mix (that I bought at the store) to make pancakes today so I decided to see if there was an easy way to make pancakes. I found your recipe online. Now let me say I am not one of those that makes food from scratch I do not spend much time in the kitchen so I decided to try your recipe I wasn’t expecting anything great just enough to satisfy my hunger. But those were the best pancakes I have had since my grandma last made them. I want you to know that I will be making these kind of pancakes for my grandkids because they were so delicious and fluffy.

    1. Thank you so much Judy! I am thrilled that you enjoyed the pancakes and I hope your grandkids do too!

  33. The pancakes turned out pretty good, but the batter was super thin and we had to add more sugar. In my opinion there was way to much baking powder. Some of the pancakes tasted like pure baking powder. Next time I would probably add vanilla extract and more sugar. Maybe a little less milk so they weren’t so thin.3 stars

    1. Hmm, I have never had that happen with this batter Alexa. But I would try add a little less milk or a little more pancake mix to help thicken it up!

  34. These turned out wonderful! Thank you very much for the recepie.

    May I ask if the Nutrition Information of 152kcal is for one portion (5 pancakes) or per 100g?5 stars

    1. So glad you liked them Yasmin. Based on the recipe making 20 pancakes, that would be per pancake. Hope that helps!

  35. I wish I could do something in between 4 and 5 stars, but there isn’t so… 4 it is. This is mostly for the batter tasting kind of flat before I customized it a little. More on that below.

    While I’m not sure if I’d call this the perfect pancake mix, it’s a pretty good alternative to store-bought. I didn’t have baking powder, but these came out pretty damn fluffy! Quick and easy to put together and there’s lots of room for add-ins. My suggestion for anyone experiencing runny batter is try adding the milk gradually. And FYI… if you omit baking powder, they don’t bubble like a normal pancake. When I saw the sides were set, that’s when I flipped them. On med/high heat, they came out golden brown w/ a delicious crispy edge. They were all pretty uniform and I was super pleased that these didn’t fall apart when topped w/ butter/syrup. I’d like to point out I don’t drown my pancakes either :P

    As I said above, after tasting a little of the batter it seemed like something was missing. I added some cinnamon to the mix and then for the actual batter I tossed in some vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and a little swirl of syrup.

    All in all, these came out much better than I thought they would. However, I’m interested to see how much better they come out when I actually have the baking powder :)4 stars

  36. As someone who doesn’t cook or bake much I wanted to point out how poorly the ingredients portion of the receipe was laid out. The receipe was for 4 cups of mix, which is fine, but then the wet ingredients were laid out as a per cup of mix basis. That’s very unintuitive and I only noticed because I put the wet ingredients in (the way I read it at first) and knew it wasn’t wet enough. If you’re going to lay out the dry ingredients as four cups of materials do the same for the rest of it. By the way I was making these for my wife’s mother’s day breakfast, turned out great but I had to do some math gymnastics to fix it since I was halving the dry ingredient portion. (Good thing I’m an engineer so math is easy)

    1. Sorry you found it confusing. This is for a dry mix as you would keep a box of pancake mix in the pantry. The smaller dry portions allow for readers to make as few or as any as they need.

      I hope your family enjoyed them in the end and wishing your wife a lovely Mother’s Day

      1. I understand the recipe perfectly. Seems as though many people are making this with a missing ingredient or they aren’t able to understand the basic recipe because they rarely follow a recipe.

  37. My kids love these! I add vanilla but I pretty much overdo vanilla in everything. This has been my go to recipe for some time now. I have noticed lumpier makes fluffier pancakes where if whipped smooth they are flat and lifeless.5 stars

  38. First I followed the recipe, made one pancake and tasted it. It was good, but missing flavor. I then added about a teaspoon to a teaspoon and a half of vanilla extract to the batter, made another pancake and….aaaaaaaaaah! Soooooo yummy!! It did the trick!! Its all about FLAVOR!!!!4 stars

    1. I have only made it with milk but I do think any liquid would likely work. If you make them with water, let us know how it goes!

      1. I normally just use a shop bought pancake mix but didnt have any. Googled and found this recipe. Was amazing – the pancakes were fluffy and kids loved it. I liked how i cld keep the mix for another time. Perfect!

    1. Sorry these didn’t work out for you. Was your batter runny? Perhaps less milk would help if you have remaining mix leftover.

    2. This recipe is a perfect foundation recipe. If you are used to lots of herbs and spices in your food you will have to add some spices. Just reading the recipe you can see there are nothing flavorful in the ingredient list. I dont use syrup so I modified the recipe by using 3 c. wheat flour and 1 c. white flour because in general white flour tastes incredibly bland to me. I also added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 2 tsp brown sugar. This made the pancakes perfectly fluffy and flavorful. I usually double this recipe and store it in a gallon ziploc bag for my teenage girls. They love having this mix on hand and like to throw in fresh fruit.4 stars

  39. This was perfect!!! I used sprouted spelt flour and coconut sugar. I also added a 1/2 tsp vanilla. They were delicious!! Toward the end of the batter it was a little runny so I added some more of the mix and let it sit a minute or two- it was perfect. 

  40. These came out great! I did use 3/4 cup milk and let the mix set for 5 minutes and they were perfect! No more store bought pancake mix for me!
    thanks for sharing this recipe!5 stars

  41. i want to make these for school mornings but would want to be able to make 1-2 pancakes with it. how much would i change the recipe of the pancakes? would i omit the eggs and butter? thankyou for sharing!!5 stars

    1. You would need the egg and butter to get the right consistency. I would suggest making it as directed. Cooked pancakes can be frozen or refrigerated and reheated in the microwave.

  42. I am a pancake lover. Having dry mix pre-made makes life so easy :) I used whole wheat flour and it turned out great. Also added a tsp vanilla to the wet mix.
    I thought the batter looked a bit runny but they turned out perfect. It does thicken as it sits too.
    I made smaller pancakes. 1 cup dry mix made 10 pancakes (using approx. 1/4 cup wet mix for each pancake)5 stars

    1. You’re welcome Jennifer! You can make crepes or waffles, including savory waffles (for dinner!). Maybe other readers have some ideas for you!

    1. It is not working out for me, either. most of them break when I try to flip them, but they are definitely done on one side and I’ve tried my pan on high and on medium heat. They are also not looking very fluffy. hrmmm Having the mix part pre-done, does help save time, though.3 stars

      1. Hmm, that’s disappointing. I’ve made this several times with success so I can’t say for sure what went wrong. Was your soda/powder fairly fresh? Did you add the oil & egg?

  43. This recipe is very good! I have been wanting a change in my breakfeast for a while as i’ve been eating toast everyday. So i was happy to hear that i could make my own pancake mix which would save me a lot of time rather than making pancakes from scratch. I’m using this recipe to make waffles in the morning and it works great!5 stars

  44. Looks good! Coming up next in our kitchen. Just a suggestion- it would be pretty cool if you could (where applicable) say how much someone will save by making these recipes:-)5 stars

  45. As with some other commentators, my batter was also too runny. I remade using 1/2 cup milk and lightly beat the egg before adding it to the mix. The pancakes turned out much better the second try. 

  46. So I am guessing that if you need to make more than 5 pancakes you just double all the ingredients? 2 eggs, 2 cups milk etc..

  47. My pancakes came out perfect. Airy and fluffy with just the right texture and consistency. Much better than the best store bought mix. Blend the ingredients properly and you can’t go wrong. Healthy and delicious. Many thanks.

  48. I’ve had this pinned for a while & just made them this morning. Very good pancakes!! I dislike boxed mix because they can be rubbery around the edges, so I usually make it for my kids but don’t eat any. I ate more than them today. Thank you!!

  49. Just an idea for those folks who found the batter too runny. Sometimes if you let the batter sit for three or four minutes after you mix it up, it will get thicker. It gives the flour a chance to absorb the liquid.

  50. So I followed this recipe exactly and the batter is very runny. I even added more flour and it is still way to runny. Why is that?

    1. I’ve made this several times and never have had a problem with it being runny so I’m not sure why yours didn’t work out. Did you add 1 cup of pancake mix to 1 cup of milk and 1 egg? You could certainly try adding a little bit more of pancake mix.

  51. This was great!! For HIGH ALTITUDE adjustment I added: 1 more TBSP Flour, and 1/2 tsp baking soda and it turned out great.

  52. I needed pancake mix at the store but decided not to pick it up yesterday and now very glad I didn’t. Can’t wait to try my own batter.

  53. Hi! Thanks so much for this recipe! Have you ever tried adding pumpkin to the batter? I didn’t know if I could just mix it right in.

  54. Can you substitute whole wheat flour for the all purpose and have it come out the same or do you need to adjust the other ingredients too?

    1. I have only tried the recipe as written. If you try it with whole wheat flour, we’d love to hear how it works for you!

    2. Did you ever try it with whole wheat flour? I am curious if it turned out. I am going to try it with whole wheat flour and the water and unsweetened applesauce combo instead of milk and egg.

      1. I haven’t tried it with whole wheat flour. As a general rule when subbing in whole wheat flour I mix it 50/50 to start and see how it works.

        If you try it, please let us know how it works out for you!

        1. I have made it with all whole wheat flour, no revisions and it turned out close to the same just not quite as fluffy? My kids didn’t like them as much of course so now I make with half regular flour, half whole wheat and they are great. Love this recipe!

  55. I love a great Homemade Pancake Mix. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome post with Full Plate Thursday and hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
    Come Back Soon,
    Miz Helen

    1. Hmm! I’ve made this many times and not had runny batter. If it’s runny for you, I’d recommend adding a little bit less milk to your pancakes (or adding a little bit more of the pancake mix) to thicken it up! Hope this helps!

  56. With the one cup dry ingredients, how many pancakes does it make. Just trying to get an idea how much I’ll need to make to feed 12 people.

  57. Ener-G Egg Replacer™ — 16 oz – Contains No Eggs or Animal Protein No Preservatives, Artificial Flavorings or Sugar Added Gluten-Free Wheat-Free Nut-Free I use it in nut bread to avoid the egg aftertaste. It’s powder and you can keep it in your pantry. I take mine out of the box and put in in a glass mason jar. Keeps a long time. If you don’t see it at your grocery try Walgreens or a natural food store.

  58. I was wondering if you can just add water to the homemade pancake mix. My stepson is allergic to eggs but loves pancakes so we usually buy the just add water kind of mix. Thanks

    1. While I haven’t tried it, I have read that you can substitute eggs in pancake mix with one of the following for each egg:
      ¼ cup applesauce
      1/2 mashed banana
      ¼ cup yogurt

      If you do try it, I’d love to hear how it works for you because others may have the same question!

      1. My granddaughter also elegiac to eggs.so I made the pancakes with apple sauce instead of eggs and it came out very good .

      2. love this recipe! i mixed the 1 cup of dry ingredients with 1 cup of water and a 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. made 4 nice sized pancakes. my daughter loved it! thanks for sharing!
