Classic Pancake Recipe Overview
This homestyle pancake recipe yields 5-6 tender, delectable pancakes with a fluffy texture. I used butter and a classic blueberry sauce as topping for my test plate here and got to say, these will probably be my go-to home recipe whenever making pancakes – which are a close second to my favorite omelette recipe.

How to Prepare Classic Pancakes Recipe Cooking Guide
Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk to blend all evenly.
Add the milk, egg and melted butter while vigorously whisking to blend all into a creamy batter. Let the mixture rest for 10 minutes to allow the flour to become hydrated.
Preheat a frying pan with oil, until hot. Spoon dollops of batter into the pan and let them cook until bubbles appear and start to pop. Flip the pancakes and cook until done. Remember to be just a little careful when turning.
Repeat this process until the batter is used.
You can also use the same batter to make some crepes since the batter is interchangeable.
