  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • teaspoon baking powder
  • tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • In a large bowl, or 4-cup measuring cup, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, or 4-cup measuring cup, beat the eggs and add the milk and olive oil. Mix well.
    Note: if you want thinner pancakes, add more milk.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture and stir only until well mixed. Do not over mix.
  • Heat a large skillet or griddle, greased with some olive oil (or other vegetable oil), over medium-high heat. Once it is hot, reduce heat to medium.
  • Pour about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake onto the hot skillet or griddle.

  • Wait for a lot of bubbles to form on the top of each pancake before turning. Turn pancakes only once.
  • Keep completed pancakes warm in a 190-200°F oven on a pre-warmed plate.
  • Serve with butter and your favorite syrup.
