Old Fashioned Pancakes

“I don’t have to tell you I love you.  I fed you pancakes.” – Kathleen Flinn


One of my most favorite things to eat!  Breakfast for dinner!

I have a GREAT recipe for you guys.  I pulled it from a blogger on Pinterest, Rachel Schultz, and have been using it since forever.  It’s important that you have a solid pancake recipe in your kitchen arsenal.  I love this one because it’s so simple that I practically have it memorized.  You can find the recipe here (and down below too):



Only 8 ingredients!  And this recipe calls for regular milk so don’t freak out about the Buttermilk in my picture!


Sift, sift, sift.


I’m a salt rebel without a cause.  I use more than 1/2 teaspoon because I like my blood pressure high.


Once you sift the dry, add the wet and mix until combined.  This is where I change the recipe a bit.  Instead of using 1 1/4 cups of milk, I use 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk.  It’s gives more fluff to the pancake.  People don’t typically have buttermilk on hand so sticking with regular milk is fine too.  (you can also make your own buttermilk using vinegar but that’s for another time!)

Anyway, I’ve tried both ways and both are great.


I use an ice cream scoop to avoid messy batter everywhere.  I have enough to clean up around here.  Speaking of kids – Belle and ‘Percy the Pig’ are joining us.


Percy gets a Belgian waffle AND cereal!?


Once you start seeing bubbles, time to flip.


I served this with bacon and cheesy scrambled eggs.  Shhhh.  Don’t tell Percy about the bacon.

Tip:  To avoid grease splatter from fried bacon, instead bake the bacon on foil lined cookie sheets at 400° F. for 12-14 minutes.


Works like a charm… perfect every time!


Best topped with real maple syrup.

I hope you enjoy these perfect pancakes as much as my family does.  🙂

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office. In 2015, my husband and I bought a 13 acre farm on the eastern plains of Colorado. We decided to live out our dreams and make the best of our lives for ourselves and our children. We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
