  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for greasing griddle


  1. If using an electric griddle, heat to 325 degrees. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk milk, eggs, and oil. Pour wet ingredients into dry; whisk 10 seconds. Don't overmix. Grease griddle or skillet. Set skillet (if using) on medium heat. When hot, pour on 1/3 cup batter per pancake. Flip when small holes appear, about 1 1/2 minutes. Cook second side until brown.
