Single Lady Pancakes

Pancakes are awesome. But too much of a good thing almost always results in an entire afternoon wasted curled up on the couch in pancake-coma.

No more....the perfect pancake recipe for one!

Single Lady Pancakes from the Joy the Baker Cookbook

1/3 cup all purpose flour
2 Tbsp old fashioned oats
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
5 tsp vegetable oil
dash of vanilla
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp buttermilk

add ins:
1/4 cup blueberries
zest from half of an orange

Taken from: "Joy the Baker Cookbook"


1) Whisk together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl whisk together oil, vanilla, and buttermilk.

2) Add wet ingredients all at once and stir until well combined. Fold in the blueberries and orange zest.

3) Melt butter in a frying pan and cook over medium heat until bubbles form and flip over. Cook until golden brown.


  1. Nice work! Love the pecan addition (I've even thrown them in the mix, because when they heat up they release a little flavour too!) -Eric
