Finally, A Pancake Recipe That Makes Just Enough For One Person

Because sometimes you don't need to make pancakes for, like, a million.



Most Popular

There's one big problem with almost all pancake recipes you'll find online: they all yield what seems like a million flapjacks. That's all fine and dandy when you're hosting a big breakfast, but what about the mornings when you're all by yourself? That craving for a buttery, syrup-drenched stack doesn't go away.

Joy the Baker's Single Lady Pancake changed my life. It sounds dramatic, but it's true. In the world of breakfast foods, I'm Team Pancakes all the way. I'd happily flip dozens of pancakes for my friends just so I could eat some too, but my friends sleep in too late (and my stomach growls in hunger every morning at 7 a.m. on the dot). A pancake recipe for one is the perfect solution. Pancake epiphany!

I played around with Joy's genius formula to simplify the process even more. I for one never have buttermilk in my fridge, and to buy a full quart (which is the only size available at my grocery store) for just a little over a quarter cup seemed silly. Milk, whatever kind you've got in your fridge, works just fine. I also used melted butter in place of vegetable oil because butter is always better. The absence of egg is no mistake—the yolk is unnecessary when you're making such a small amount of batter.

With this recipe, you could pour a few dollar-sized pancakes into the skillet, but I prefer forming one giant pancake. It's a little unwieldy to flip, and you might not end up with a perfectly round cake, but you're not trying to impress anyone here. Who the heck cares if you're chocolate chip pancake is a lopsided blob? It'll be golden-brown, fluffy and delicious all the same.
