Pancakes for Two Recipe

These light and fluffy pancakes are perfectly portioned for two, so there's no need to worry about what to do with leftover batter. For a special taste treat, I like to prepare them with blueberries.—Annemarie Pietila, Farmington Hills, Michigan

  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1-1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

"Great recipe! Buttermilk is the secret to amazing pancakes ... makes them tender, yet stretchy with a wonderful flavor! Definitely delicious! Mmmmmm! :-)"

"Great easy recipe! Added chocolate chips instead of blueberries and regular whole milk instead of butter milk and coconut oil instead of canola. The great thing about this recipe is it's foolproof and can be adjusted as desired, thank you for sharing!"

"Made these this morning for my husband and myself. They were on the table within 20 min. They were delicious! I substituted the oil for 2 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter and used fresh whole milk instead of buttermilk. I only used 1 cup of milk, because I like the batter to be a little thicker. All in all it is a great go to recipe!"

"Oh man! I thoroughly enjoyed these pancakes, and they were a breeze to make! I made the buttermilk with regular milk and a few tablespoons of vinegar, just let it sit a few minutes and that's it! I used whole wheat flour and they turned out AMAZING!!"
