  • Measure 1 cup of the pancake mix above into a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate medium sized bowl, combine 1 large egg, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 to 1 1/4 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla (optional). Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix. The batter should be fairly thick. Some lumps are okay. Allow the batter to sit for a few minutes.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Lightly oil the skillet with a small amount of vegetable oil or Pam baking spray. Spoon batter onto the skillet for each round pancake (about 1/4 cup per pancake).
  • Cook for approximately two minutes. The pancake should bubble slightly. Use a spatula to flip each pancake over. They should be golden brown. Continue cooking on the other side for another two minutes or so or until golden brown. Transfer to a platter.
  • Pancakes can be held warm in a 200 F oven. Serve with your favorite pancake toppings such as maple syrup or fruit.


  • Substitutions: Melted butter or melted coconut oil can be used in place of vegetable oil. Non-dairy unflavored milk or buttermilk can be used in place of regular milk.
