The recipe has no leavening agent to help them rise.

Try this recipe:

1 1/2 cups flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk, amount of milk determines thickness/thinness of your pancakes so you judge
1 egg lightly beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 tablespoons of melted butter

Sift dry ingredients together, add butter, add egg then milk then vanilla mixing until just combined, don't over mix. Do not cook in butter use a vegetable oil or PAM. Heat frying pan or griddle until a drop of batter in oil sizzles and pops. The cook your pancakes.

I added sugar and baking soda after reading the comments. Then I added more sugar. It wasn't that bad. Then, I added some vanilla. I would advise against vanilla. It really only needs sugar. Maybe try like a quarter cup.

Try this one instead: HOMEMADE PANCAKES.

It's really well reviewed.

Yuck! They cooked up white with no flavor whatsoever. I tried to savage a 2nd batch with a little vanilla & cooking in addional oil, but no luck.

What's with no baking powder?

Comment submitted: 9/9/2008 (#6428)


I think the basic ingredient lacking here is the baking powder! It's not going to be fluffy without baking powder y'all!

I, for one, think this recipe is amazing. We had many memories with the pancake made using this recipe. In addition to this estimated amount of ingredients, we added m&m's, skittles, marshmallows, mints, bananas, prune juice, ice cream, eggnog (in place of eggs and milk) and it was delicious. We call this the "carnival pancake." It is best eaten at three in the morning. We filled a large skillet with the batter to make a single giant pancake. We were forced to dump the remaining batter.

In breakfast cheer,
Ben and Tyler

Note: This recipe makes so called French pancakes (crepes), not the fluffy variety.

The batter is supposed to be quite thin, and the resulting pancakes should be less than 1mm thick. (If they are more, add more milk)

Eat with sweet or savoury filling.

I added 1 teaspoon of Baking Powder and 1 tablespoon (appx) of melted butter to this recipe and it turned out pretty good.

Of course it is difficult to make pancakes without BAKING POWDER!

So funny people keep making this. You have to read the page people:> The alternative recipe is so good. Made them this morning. Always a winner. Funny that I bookmarked this page to get to that one.

Not bad, but u need to add sugar and baking powder. That way they're even better.

The recipe is missing baking powder, that's why they are flat and dense.
