It’s Friday night, which means Netflix and PJs and BREAKFAST FOR DINNER!  I’ve never made pancakes from scratch, but tonight I did, and it was yet another kitchen success!

And it’s really simple.  Mix up 1 ½ cups flour, 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder (not baking soda!), a teaspoon of salt, and a tablespoon of white sugar.  In a different bowl, mix up 3 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 egg, 1 ½ cups of vanilla soy milk, and ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Create a well of sorts in the dry ingredients, pour the wet ones in, then mix just until everything is moist!  I didn’t go all pancake crazy this time, but you could throw in blueberries or chocolate chips at this point, if it’s a really loco night that is.

Then just grease a skillet, pour in some batter, cook em and flip em…magic! OMNOMNOM BREAKFAST FOR DINNER READY SET GO!

    I made this recipe using the measurements in the content portion of the post, not the recipe below. The measurement for baking powder in the content portion is 3 1/2 tablespoons (clearly it was early and I wasn’t thinking through that that is WAY too much baking powder). I mixed up the batter according to the post and it tasted AWFUL. The whole batch was a waste because all you could taste was baking powder. I see that the measurement is correct on the recipe card at the bottom, but please fix the top measurement so no one else has a ruined batch!!

      Holy moly, Amey, I’m so sorry to have caused you to ruin your batch!! I’ve just changed it so no one else will suffer a less-than-spectacular breakfast, and I hope you were able to salvage a good breakfast in the end. So sorry again and thanks so much for dropping in to let me know it was wrong!

    It still says 3 and a half tsp. I thought that was too much but it in. Have to start over. 😕

      Hi Zoanne, sorry to hear it didn’t work for you! I make this recipe often with the 3 1/2 tsp listed and don’t have a problem. Could you have accidentally added more?
