I will not claim to have the best pancake recipe – there are SO many out there, many that I have tried. But, these very pancakes are earning points each and every single time we make them. We make theses far more often than we should be admitting, but what can we say, we simply love breakfast foods!
This batch specifically makes 36 delicious pancakes. In my opinion, if you are going to stand at the stove and flip away might as well make enough to last a few days. An entire batch is cooled and put away in gallon size ziploc bags and we pull them out as needed throughout the week. Making breakfast fast and filing!
We switch things up and add chocolate chips or blueberries here and there, but keeping them as-is is always a winner in our books too!
Vanilla soy milk is used in our house – for sweet Owens allergies – but you can use good ol’ cows milk and add 2 tsp of vanilla for a touch of sweetness.
I hold down the fort by standing at the stove the entire time. There is a fine line between perfect pancakes and burnt pancakes.
Need to change a diaper? That turd can wait.
Just give yourself 15-20 minutes of time to keep an eye on these pancakes, because flipping them on time is the key. My station is set with two frying pans – a paper towel (I’ll explain later) – two cooling racks and my favorite flipper.
After countless pancake practicing – this is my fool proof method. You can see my pans are put on medium – low. I spritz the pan with nonstick spray before each batch. After the pancakes are taken out, I wipe the pan with a dry paper towel to soak up the old nonstick spray, re-spritzing again for the new batch. I use a 1/3 measuring cup for each pour – and flip each pancake once there are bubbles bursting on top.
A few minutes on each side and you are good to go! If putting chocolate chips or blueberries in, I plop them on right when I pour the batter onto the pan.

Fun fact of the day – googling flapjacks and urban dictionary’s top definition for “pancakes” are when a womans breasts are pushed up against glass. Not sure if I agree.
I think the breast comparison –
(see what I did there? ha)
If your comparing boobs to pancakes it would be the aftermath of breastfeeding.
Agreed ladies? No glass needed.
Okay, enough boob and pancake comparison – start flippin’ your flapjacks folks.
