The word basic gets thrown around these days like it’s a bad thing. I like basic. Lululemon leggings? Got’em. I’m not a Starbucks fan but I do have Ugg-like boots and I proudly wear them with my Lulu’s. Ain’t no shame in my game.

So when I say “your basic weekend pancakes” I mean a simple, classic pancake recipe that should be your go-to. These pancakes doesn’t require any special trips to the store for ingredients like buttermilk or Greek yogurt. Just basic ingredients like flour, sugar, milk, eggs… etc.

Give it all one last whisk, lumps are okay! Before measuring out 1/4 cup of the pancake batter and pouring it onto a preheated (375°) , lightly coconut-oiled griddle or skillet.

When the air bubbles pop and no longer fill back in with batter and the bottoms are golden brown, flip and cook for another minutes or so.

Repeat with the remaining batter until you have 18-20 pancakes. I keep our pancakes toasty warm by placing them onto a rimmed sheet pan and in a 200° oven. In case you were wondering what pan I’m using, here’s the link. 🙂 (affiliate)
