Buttery Pancakes

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons sugar


  1. Whisk together milk, eggs, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a medium bowl, then whisk in .
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder, and sugar in another medium bowl. Whisk in egg mixture until just combined.
  3. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking (recommended temperature skillet = 325 F). Working in batches of 3 and adding 1/2 teaspoon more oil between batches, pour 1/3 cup measures of batter into skillet and cook until bubbles have formed on top and broken, about 2 minutes.
