Best Ever Pancakes from Martha

Martha's Best Panckakes

School’s  been in session for three months.  Really?  I’ve been in a whirlwind of what?  Where have the days gone?  Am I the only one that’s wondering what’s happening to time?  Let’s slow time down.  Do you agree?  I want to enjoy, just soak it all in, live each second before it slips away.  I don’t want to miss a thing!  What about you?

We are in the middle of our quick bread unit.  I’m so happy with what my students have done so far!  They are doing a fabulous job in the lab!  I will say this, adding a stop watch to my Promethean board  has been the best motivator! Students have to be seated at their tables by a certain time  in order to make an A . It really has helped them to focus and  use their time wisely.  You know I should do the same thing in my kitchen!!!

The pancake lab really needed very little improvement.  It was a great day in the kitchen.

At home I gave Martha’s best ever pancakes a try and they are easy and very worth making!  It’s just a basic recipe that everyone can use anytime.  Enjoy some pancakes with your family this fall and make some great memories!

Martha’s Best Ever Pancakes  from Martha Stewart

Yield:  4 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg


  1. In a small bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together milk, oil, and egg.
  3. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture.
  4. Whisk just until moistened.  Do not overmix.  There should be small lumps.
  5. Heat a griddle to medium heat about 325 degrees.  Lightly grease if needed.
  6. Using 1/4 cup measure pour batter onto a preheated griddle.  My griddle holds 6 pancakes at a time.
  7. Start to turn when bubbles start to burst.  Flip and cook 1 or 2 minutes until the bottom is brown.
  8. To keep the pancakes warm place them on a cooling rack placed on a cookie sheet in a 200 degree oven.
  9. Makes about 12 small pancakes.
