Easy Pancake Recipe For One

easy pancake recipe for one

In this post we will go over an easy pancake recipe for one, so you do not have a ton of leftovers as it is always better to make your pancakes fresh!

If you are like me, you love pancakes. They are a perfect breakfast treat and they go very well with everything:

  • Maple syrup
  • Sour cream
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Bacon

The variety of their applications is fantastic! But in most recipes you have to cook a huge batch, so I decided to make this quick recipe when you are making pancakes just for one person!

Let’s get to it!

We will need:

  • 1 large egg
  • Butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt


  1. Take a large bowl a mix together egg and milk (Optional: vanilla extract works great too, just do not overdo it.)
  2. Into the same bowl, mix together baking powder, flour, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Whisk it together, if you do not have a whisker, work with your fork – until everything is nicely combined and has a creamy texture.
  3. In your pan or a skillet melt the butter, wait for it to become translucent and a bit bubbly.
  4. With a cup, ladle, or straight from your bowl lay the batter on the pan to the size of the desired package. You can make many small pancakes or 3-4 big ones – depends on your preference.
  5. Let them cook (do not steer or move them) until bubbles start to appear on the surface – that means that the other side is golden brown. Carefully check with your spatula. Takes about 2-3 minutes.
  6. If the sides are brown, with your spatula flip the pancakes to the other side and let them cook for roughly 1 minute.
  7. Remove the pancakes on the plate, and repeat the process wit the remainder of the batter (if you have any).

Put the desired topings and that is it! Enjoy!
