Diner Style Pancakes

I found the recipe for these Diner Style Pancakes on the King Arthur Flour website. I was intrigued when I saw that the recipe calls for malt, like the kind you use for malted milkshakes. They said that many restaurants use malt instead of sugar in their pancakes. I happened to have some in my pantry, so I decided to give them a try. They did not disappoint! They were nice and fluffy, and also tender. I think that the malt added a great flavor. These will be making a regular appearance on our breakfast table!
Diner Style Pancakes. A secret ingredient makes these pancakes extra tasty!

Diner Style Pancakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp oil or melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup malt (or 2 Tbsp sugar)
  1. Beat eggs and milk till frothy. Add oil and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients just till moistened; don't over-mix. Let rest for at least 15 minutes. (The batter will thicken as it sits.)
  2. Cook on medium heat on an oiled griddle.
-Make sure you let the batter sit or it will be too runny.
-I liked them best with buttermilk syrup. Man that stuff is good!
