If nothing else, there’s one thing you should know about me: I love pancakes. This single serving pancake recipe is everything pancakes should be: light, fluffy, hearty, and utterly delicious. I made three medium sized pancakes with this recipe, but you could make them silver-dollars to have more of a bite sized taste. I also like to add chocolate chips to my pancake for a little sweet treat, and than top it with sliced bananas. But you can dress them up or keep ‘em plain. That’s the joys of pancakes.


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg, milk, oil, and vanilla.
  3. Using a whisk, stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined. Do not overmix. Batter will be a bit lumpy.
  4. Preheat a fry pan over medium heat. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Or if you have a griddle that works best – I usually have my heat set at 350 degrees.
  5. Pout 1/3 cup of batter onto hot pan (or griddle). Cook until bubbles form on surface.
  6. Carefully flip the pancake over and cook other side until golden brown. This will only take about a 1-2 minutes.
  7. Repeat with remaining batter.
  8. Serve hot with favorite pancake toppings.
