Volunteer Recipes – Perfect Pancakes


  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 to 1/4 cups plain rice milk or soy milk
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat for at least 2 minutes (and up to 5 minutes).
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  • Make a well in the center and add the oil, water, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla.
  • Mix just until ingredients are combined. A few lumps in the batter are just fine.
  • Spray the pan with a light coat of cooking spray (or a very light coat of oil).
  • Pour pancakes one at a time and cook until bubbles form and the tip looks somewhat dry (about 3 minutes).
  • Flip over and cook for another minute then serve.
