What you need to make classics pancakes

sifting flour

Flour
Baking powder
Sugar
Salt
Butter
Eggs
Milk
Vanilla extract

batter cooking on a griddle

The ingredient list is minimal; so is the effort. I have found that sifting the flour helps to minimize lumps but I don’t always do it. They turn out perfectly either way. Butter is mandatory for frying pancakes; I feel very strongly about this, lol. However, you can fry them on a dry nonstick griddle.
