  1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Add oil and eggs, pour in milk to moisten to desired consistency. Batter may be slightly lumpy.

  2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Drop batter by large spoonfuls onto the griddle and cook in batches until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Recipe Yield

18 medium-sized pancakes

Recipe Note

This is a fourth generation family-favorite recipe for delicious yet simple pancakes that my husband's great grandpa Mackinaw Johnson used to make for the hired hands on his homestead in Montana. Guests from all over the world now enjoy it daily at our dude ranch.
