Making pancakes for one is not only incredibly simple, but it's also a great kitchen staple if you live by yourself, just want a small meal, or if don't want to spend forever making a large batch of pancakes.
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon buttermilk powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and buttermilk powder (if using) and whisk to combine.
  2. Add in the vegetable oil, milk, egg, and vanilla extract and mix with a wooden spoon until combined. Do not overmix, as this will make the pancakes tough and dense.
  3. On a lightly greased griddle or frying pan over medium heat, pour ⅓ cup of the batter at a time onto the pan and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Flip when bubbles rise to the surface and pop and the edges of the pancake appear dry.
  4. Eat immediately with butter, syrup, and your favorite pancake toppings.
