Have you ever had what you thought was the best recipe ever only to find out that you were wrong? I came to this realization when I decided to try these Feather Pancakes. I’m not kidding – I have kicked my old pancake recipe to the curb. This is my new FAVORITE homemade pancake recipe.
My guess is you’ve realized by now that this recipe doesn’t actually have feathers in it, because that would just be gross. ;) I’m pretty sure the reason they’re called Feather Pancakes is because they are feather-light…as in light & fluffy.
Who doesn’t LOVE a stack of light & fluffy pancakes? Oh. My. Goodness. Just add a pat of butter and
drizzle drown them in syrup, and you’re set.
Every once in a while we like to have breakfast for supper. Do you ever do that? Pancakes are one of my favorite breakfast foods to have for supper. Throw some sausage links on the side, and you’re good to go. It makes a quick and easy evening meal.
Want a sure-fire way to tell when your pancake is ready to be flipped? Pour the batter on the griddle and wait patiently for the bubbles. The topside will bubble as the pancake sets – when the topside is mostly covered with bubbles it’s ready to be flipped.
This recipe makes eight 5-inch pancakes. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup to drop batter will give you a perfect 5-inch round pancake.
After flipping the pancake you’ll know it’s done when it springs back from your touch. Using your finger gently press into the pancake, if it springs back it’s ready. If the indention remains it needs a few more minutes. (It was one of those days where you go through all 103 pictures to realize you only took two of a particular shot. Well, this was the better of the two. The focus is on the very top left of the pancake.) As you can see this pancake is ready – no indention.
- 1 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 1 cup flour, sifted
- 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 tablespoons baking powder

Bake on a hot griddle flipping once after pancake has set and top is bubbly. Flip and bake on other side until pancake springs back when lightly pressed.
