Serves: 5-6
A simple thick, fluffy pancake perfect for lazy weekend breakfasts. Feel free to make a double batch - they also freeze and thaw well, in the microwave or toaster.
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour (can sub up to 1 cup with whole wheat flour)
  • 6 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Baby Brain Organics blend (optional)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk + 1-2 Tbsp more, as needed
  • 4 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. In large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and Baby Brain blend, if using.
  2. In medium bowl, lightly whisk eggs, then add milk, oil and vanilla and whisk to combine. Pour into flour mixture and stir just until moistened - it will still be a bit lumpy. Add a couple splashes of milk if you like your batter a little thinner.
  3. Spoon batter by about ¼-cupfuls onto hot, lightly greased griddle or into non-stick frying pan and spread out a bit with the back of a spoon. Let cook until bubbles appear in the surface that do not pop/disappear right away and underside is lightly browned, then flip and cook other side for about 2 minutes.
  4. Keep warm in the oven while you continue with the rest of the batter - I like to put them on a cooling rack on a big cookie sheet and put that in my oven on the warm setting (around 170 degrees Fahrenheit). The cooling rack keeps them up so the bottoms don't get soggy while they sit.
