Units Scale

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. Makes 15-18 medium pancakes.


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.
