HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY HOMEMADE PANCAKES
So now that I’ve told you these are easy, fluffy and delicious, let’s talk about how to make them.
Start by combining the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately, then add them to the same bowl and gently fold them together. You don’t want to do this too brusquely or overdo it. It can over develop the gluten in flour and end up giving you dense, tough pancakes.
You’ll end up with some lumps in your batter and that’s ok. Let it rest while you heat your griddle or pan and they’ll break up a bit. Give the batter another little stir before using it and you’ll notice the biggest offending lumps will break up.
From there, cook your pancakes. You’ll know they are ready to be flipped when they’ve got bubbles coming through the top and the edges are set. I usually cook them until they are just about done, so after I flip them, they just need a little more time to finish cooking the other side so that it’s golden.
Finally, serve your pancakes warm with your favorite maple syrup!
This Homemade Pancakes Recipe makes soft & fluffy pancakes that are easy to throw together on the weekends. Get ready to dig into a stack of the best pancakes you’ve ever had!
2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
4 tbsp (52g) sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups (360ml) milk
4 tbsp (56g) butter, melted and slightly cooled
2 tsp vanilla
- .Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
- In a large measuring cup, combine the egg, milk, butter and vanilla extract.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold them together until well combined, but still a little lumpy. You don’t want to over mix them or they could end up less fluffy and tough. The batter should be relatively thick, but easily pourable.
- Set the batter aside to rest while you heat the griddle, 5-10 minutes. Any remaining lumps with start to soften as the moisture soaks in. Gently stir again.
- Heat a griddle or non-stick pan over medium-low heat and melt a little butter to grease it. Pour batter onto the pan and let it spread out into a round pancake. I used about 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake.
- Allow to cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the edges are set, then flip and cook until golden.
- Continue cooking with the remaining batter.
- Serve pancakes with maple syrup or your choice of toppings.
