Step by Step Instructions:

Combining the dry ingredients in a bowl

Step 1 – Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt.

Mix together the egg, milk and vanilla in a bowl

Combine the dry and wet ingredients in a bowl

Step 3 – Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, then stir in the melted butter.

Pouring batter into round circles on a skillet

Cooking pancakes in a skillet

Step 5 – Cook until bubbles form in the middle, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from the griddle.

Placing bacon on a paper towel to microwave

Recipe Tips:

  • Skillet – Before pouring the combined pancake ingredients in a large bowl, make sure to heat the large skillet and spray with cooking spray. This makes sure that the pancake does not stick and is easy to flip.
  • Pancake Sizes – We like to prepare these pancakes in different sizes to make them look like a snowman.
  • Pancake Griddle Recommendations – If you are looking for a new griddle to cook your pancakes, check out these Best Pancake Griddles.
