Nutrition information


Choose your measure:

  • 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk or yogurt; or 3/4 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted butter


  1. Whisk together the flour, sugar, and baking soda.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and oil or melted butter until foamy. Add to the flour mixture and mix until blended; leaving a few small lumps is OK.
  3. Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes, while your griddle or frying pan heats up. Heat to medium high (375°F to 400°F), until a drop of water dribbled onto the surface bounces across it. Brush lightly with vegetable oil, or spray with non-stick baking spray.
  4. For each pancake, drop 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot surface. Flip the pancakes over once bubbles have risen to the surface, and cook the second side until golden brown. Serve hot.
