  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • butter or oil (or ghee) as needed to grease the pan and cook the pancakes


  • In a medium sized bowl, mix together the dry ingredients - flour, salt and also the sugar until well mixed.
  • Whisk the eggs in a different bowl, and add the milk and oil, mix very well.
  • Add the wet ingredients mixture to the dry flour mixture slowly, and mix well until well combined and the batter if formed without any lumps.
  • Heat an iron skillet or pan (or use non stick pan) and grease with oil or butter.
  • Add one ladle of batter to the hot pan, add a tablespoon of butter of ghee and let it cook for a minute or until the bottom side is cooked and bubbles appear on top.
  • Gently flip the pancake and cook the other side too, which will cook faster.
  • Once the pancake is cooked, transfer it to the serving dish, similarly cook all pancakes until the batter is finished. Enjoy the pancakes hot with butter or maple syrup or any of your favorite toppings as you wish!


Pancakes without baking powder tastes the best when they are still hot or warm. I used wheat flour (Indian wheat atta flour) for making these pancakes but you may use all purpose flour for a more softer texture.
