  • 1 ¼ cups (31.25g ) all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons (15ml) baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons (10ml) sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons (30ml) butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ cups (295ml) whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) vanilla
  • canola oil


Add flour and baking powder to a small mixing bowl, mix till blended.  Add the egg, sugar and salt to a medium mixing bowl and whisk.  Then add melted butter, milk and vanilla.  Whisk again.  Add dry ingredients, mixing with a wooden spoon until blended.  Do not overmix, batter can be lumpy.  

Heat skillet over medium high heat.  Brush the pan lightly with canola oil and drop the batter using a ½ cup (120ml) measuring cup or ladle.  Flip the pancakes when bubbles appear in the batter and they start to pop.  Flip over for about 1 minute until golden brown on the bottom side.

Serve hot with a pad of butter and real maple syrup.

Chef Note:  Warm up the maple syrup on the stove top for a real treat.
