Spinach Pancakes

This spinach pancakes recipe is definitely one of the cheap and easy meals.  Even if you need to triple the quantity, it still costs you less than $10.  It is very filling and healthy. 

Usually, a pancake per person is good enough.  For a big eater, like me, 2 pancakes are the maximum that a person can take.

Triple this spinach pancakes recipe, it still only costs you under $10.  Plus, you can feed 8-12 people.  A good budget   recipe or what?

Prep Time: 5 Minutes   Cook Time: 30 Minutes   Serving: 2-4

My mother-in-law develops this method for storing the leftover.  Since she lives on her own, she can’t just cook a pancake. 

What does she do with the leftover?  She freezes the pancakes individually.  When she wants to have it, she takes one out and heats it up and serves.

1 Box (10 ounce) Frozen Chopped Spinach (thawed and save all the excess liquid)
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Cup All Purpose Flour (sifted)

½ teaspoon Salt
¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
½ teaspoon Onion Powder
6 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (divided)

  1. Combine all ingredients and seasonings together, except oil, in a mixing bowl
  2. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes 
  3. Preheat oven at 250F to keep the pancakes warm while cooking the rest
  4. Preheat a non-stick skillet with a 5.5” diameter bottom at medium heat
  5. Add 1 ½ tbsp oil, then ½ cup pancake batter
  6. When the edge turns brown; about 3-5 minutes
  7. Turn pancake over and cook another 1-2 minutes
  8. When you move the skillet and the pancake can also move around itself
  9. Transfer to oven safe plate and keep it warm in the oven
  10. Repeat steps 5 to 8 until the batter is gone
  11. Make 4 pancakes


Can be doubled or tripled
