The Best Homemade Pancakes Recipe

We love pancakes in our house….who doesn’t?!?!  We both had a go to homemade pancake recipe.  But we both also kept tweaking it every time we made it.  So we changed it.

A couple years ago, we both realizd that we were using the same recipe from Laura Fuentes.  They were nice and fluffy and just the right amount of sweet.  But the batter was really thick, and we grew up in a thin batter house.  So we were always adding more milk.

This recipe captures the flavors from Laura’s original recipe while providing the thinner consistency that we wanted.

You can double the batch and freeze some for late.  I lay them out on a cooling rack and place them in the freezer for about an hour.  Then I transfer them to a ziplock baggie.  That way, they don’t freeze together and you can grab one or two for a quick pancake fix.
