Favorite Pancakes

From the Betty Crocker ‘Red Pie Cover’ cookbook
Originally in the 1991 cookbook


1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp shortening, melted or salad oil
1 cup flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt


  1. Beat egg; add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth with beaters.
  2. Grease heated griddle.
  3. Pour batter from tip of large spoon or small measuring cup onto hot griddle.
  4. Turn pancakes as soon as they are puffed and full of bubbles.
  5. Turn over and bake other side until golden brown.

To test if griddle is ready, sprinkle a few drops of water onto griddle. If they dance, griddle is hot enough.
