i tiredthis and it really good for anyone wanting pancakes this is the one


Good classic pancake recipe. They turned out great!


This is the recipe I've used for years out of my old Betty Crocker Cookbook - it's just packed up right now. There's just no reason to buy pancake mix....this is about as simple and so much better!


This is the best! I have used it for years, tried others, but I always come back to this one! Rae ... Indiana


The basic and essential pancake - easy and my kids love them. I also add 1 mashed-up banana and a handful of dark chocolate chips...great!

Good pancakes, very filling. Made 8 (4-inch) pancakes instead of 9. I did add 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed, to add more fiber to our diet. While I've been using my Pillsbury Pancake recipe for many years, this was a nice change, and will use this recipe again, as these pancakes were a bit hearty and quite filling. My husband and I were quite full after eating 3 pancakes each.

Very happy to find this! Tried the Betty Crocker site and they're just selling Bisquick. I have this cookbook... in storage 600 miles away. Thank you!


Double the recipe! Only makes 3 pancakes, unless you make tiny ones!

I have used this recipe for years my family loves it I also make it by adding 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon with 1 chopped up apple (macintosh) they ) love them


Can you use buttermilk then milk instead, will work or not what do you think, will it better or not. I would like to know if that would be all right or not.


Buttermilk would be totally fine. I sometimes use buttermilk to replace milk, which actually adds a subtle tang. The pancakes are as delicious. Hope this helps. Happy Cooking :)

Betty Crocker cookbook that I have says you can substitute applesauce for some of the milk. I’m not home. Do you know what the receipt calls for?


I make them vegan by substituting 1/4 cup applesauce for the egg, and soymilk for the milk. I make these once a week. Delicious!


I make them vegan by substituting 1/4 cup applesauce for the egg and using soymilk instead if milk. I also use half white flour and half wheat. I make them at least once a week for the kids. Highly recommend!
