One of those amazing breakfast dishes you just cannot get enough of, pancakes can also be intimidating. When to flip? Butter or oil? Hot and quick or low and slow? Syrup or Butter?! {Obviously both.}

A pancake is a flat cake, often thin, and round, prepared from a starch-based batter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan. You can also thin out the batter and make a crepe, which is just as delicious. Casey 2 Cook is here to share her original flapjacks from-scratch pancake recipe and how to up your pancake game.

Casey’s Simple From Scratch Flap Jacks {Original Recipe}

1 cup of all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1 egg

1 cup of milk of your choice

1/2  teaspoon of vanilla extract

4 tablespoons of melted butter

Now if you’re going regular pancakes, try powdered sugar, syrup, fruit, chocolate chips, jelly… whatever toppings you desire!

Directions for Traditional Pancakes:

1. Mix together all the dry ingredients, making sure there are no lumps.

2. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and vanilla until combined and smooth. Pour in the melted butter and stir.

3. Carefully pour the milk mixture into the flour bowl and stir to combine. Do not over stir, some lumps are ok 🙂

4. Spray your griddle or frying pan with nonstick spray and turn up to medium-high. Spoon about 1/4 cup of mix into the pan. When you see tiny bubbles form around the outside of your pancake and some in the middle, its time to flip. It will only need about 40 seconds on the other side. Continue this with all of your mixes, you can make them larger or smaller. Adjust your flame as you see fit, as everyone’s stoves are different!

To Make it Reese’s Pancakes:

  1. Ground-up a cup of Reese’s puffs cereal.
  2. Mix that into your pancake batter once finished.
  3. Once made, add whipped cream, some shaved dark chocolate, and more puffs for garnish.
  4. **NOTE: You can pretty much do this with any cereal of your choice. WIN/WIN.

Peanut Butter Sauce Topping:

  • Put a tablespoon of peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir. It’s that easy!
  • Pour over and enjoy. Voila.
