2 Tbsp. sugar
2 cups flour, all-purpose or wheat
5 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk


  1. In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients just enough to moisten the dry ingredients. The mixture will be thick and lumpy.
  2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat and lightly grease.
  3. Pour or spoon the batter onto the griddle to form pancakes.
  4. Cook the pancakes on a hot greased griddle.
  5. Flip when bubbles break on the surface and the edges begin to dry.


If you like, you can add chocolate chips or candies to the batter for a special treat.

If you would like to make special patterns for the kids, you can add chocolate chips or candy while the pancakes are cooking. I like to make smiley faces and other patterns in the pancakes for special occasions. For Valentine’s day, I have made heart shapes in pink sprinkles, for Christmas, I have made Christmas designs, etc.
