If you’re looking for the perfect fluffy pancake recipe; you’ve come to the right place. This recipe is delicious!
When we lived in Sydney, Ian used to work 6 days a week. He worked on a construction site and had to wake up really early. More often than not, we would end up having these pancakes for breakfast on Sunday after sleeping in.
This recipe is super easy to make (demonstrated by me rolling out of bed and making them while still in my PJ’s). As a bonus, it uses ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. I know a lot of people use the store bought mixes, and while they’re convenient, nothing beats these made-from-scratch pancakes. It might just be me, but it’s so satisfying making food from scratch. I really get excited about it!
The pancakes are thick and fluffy, but if you want thin pancakes, just add a little more milk. Over the past few years we’ve added blueberries and choc chips, and last week we even ate them for dinner with banana mixed into the batter and half wholemeal flour.
So if you haven’t made pancakes from scratch before, I suggest you give this recipe a try. It’s very easy, and only takes a few minutes.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Makes: 6 big pancakes (or more smaller ones)
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour (can sub out ¾ cup of plain flour and substitute for ¾ cup wholemeal flour)
- 3 1/2 tsps baking powder (if you get flat pancakes, it may be because you’re baking powder has been sitting around for too long)
- 3/4 tsp salt (salt helps make the insides fluffy)
- 1 tbs castor sugar
- 1 1/3 cups milk
- 1 egg, whisked with a fork
- 3 tbs butter, melted
- Put together all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl; flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix the dry ingredients.
- Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until just combined. Don’t worry about lumps, lumps in the batter actually make for better pancakes.
- Heat some butter in a frying pan over medium high heat.
- Pour the batter onto the pan.
- Cook the first side until bubbles have formed over the top surface. This is where we add blue berries or choc chips, just drop them on the uncooked side.
- Flip, and cook the 2nd side for about 2 minutes.
- Make sure both sides are lightly browned and serve hot with ice cream and maple syrup!
