Easy Homemade Comfort Food Butter Pancakes
My Easy Homemade Comfort Food Butter Pancakes are a delicious way to deliver a yummy breakfast to your family. This butter pancake recipe is made from scratch with common ingredients most people already have in their kitchens. The butter is built right into the pancakes, so there is no need to top the pancakes with butter. Top them with syrup; they are so scrumptious! This will be a family favorite!
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 Tablespoons butter divided into 3 melted Tablespoons and 1 Tablespoon patty of butter
- 1 1/2 cups 1% milk or skim milk
- 1 egg beaten
Combine the 1 1/14 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 Tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a bowl. Stir well.
Combine 3 Tablespoons melted butter (slightly cooled), 1 egg, and 1 1/2 cups 1% milk. Beat egg and stir well. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir well.
Add 1 Tablespoon of butter to pan, spread butter all over frying pan. Heat pan over medium low heat. Pour 1/4 cup scant pancake batter onto frying pan. Flip pancakes when wet top begins to cook (watch to make sure they don't burn on the underside), be sure to flip over to cook both sides. Done when golden. Recipe Note: The first few pancakes tend to be more saturated with butter so turn out thinner than the rest of the batch. Make sure you cook them long enough or they will be pale.
Top with syrup and serve.
