Cinnamon Vanilla Pancakes

My kids are experts when it comes to pancakes. I always use the box brand, add water, mix. I felt like I can do so much better. 

My goal one day is to make them from scratch but have been just to nervous to make them. 

I’m not going to lie, I’m horrible at making pancakes but after talking to my mom and her inspiration, I did some research, then put together a recipie that for me that I was comfortable with and not to mention tastes amazing!


  • Cast iron skillet 
  • 2 mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • Spatula
  • Serving plate


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 3 table spoons of sugar
  • 2 table spoons of cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 table spoons of butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1 – 1/2 cups of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Vegetable oil for frying

In one of your mixing bowls combine all of your dry ingredients. Mix well

In your other mixing bowl combine your wet ingredients excluding your butter. Mix well.

Add your dry ingredients with your wet and whisk together.


Now add your butter. Mix till all ingredients are combined only. Do not over mix. Your pancakes will not rise correctly. Set aside for about 2 minutes.

In your skillet add 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Set burner on medium low. 

Once skillet is warm pour 1/3 cup of batter center of your skillet. Cook till edges appear crisp and begins to bubble.

Flip over and cook till the other side has browned. Place on your serving platter.

Repeat this process till you run out of batter. 

Serve warm with butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, powdered sugar. Your toppings are endless.
