Recipe | My Favourite Fluffy Pancakes

Recently I managed the unthinkable: making pancakes that were both edible and didn't set the smoke alarm off. Considering I'm not actually a bad cook I was at a loss to explain why the perfect pancake had always alluded me so I spent time trawling American food blogs and trying their recipes before finally putting together my favourite parts of each recipe to create my favourite fluffy pancakes.

As I took this recipe from various different recipes it is, a) impossible to credit but chances are if you're an American food blog with a pancake recipe, you have inspired this in part and, b) the measurements are in cups.

You will need
  • Non stick frying pan
  • Whisk
  • Metal egg slice to flip your pancakes
  • 1 and 1/2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter (I just melted a chunk of butter and measured it out after)
  • 325 ml milk
  • Dash of vanilla essence (optional)
  • Sprinkling of cinnamon (optional)
  • Fruit to top (optional)
  • Maple Syrup (optional)
  • Fry Light Spray


1. Sift together your flour, sugar, salt and baking powder (and cinnamon if you're using it) into a medium sized bowl.

2. Add the milk, butter, egg and vanilla into the dry ingredients and whisk well until a smooth batter forms.

3. Spray your frying pan with fry light and set over a medium to high heat. When your pan is hot, ladle in about a 1/4 cup of batter - the trick is to keep your pancakes relatively small and thick.

4. When your pancake starts to bubble on top, flip - don't toss, it over to cook the other side. The sides of your pancakes should be light golden as should both sides.

5. Top with fresh fruit and lashings of maple syrup.

This will make a pretty hearty serving of pancakes (I managed to get 12 servings out of this recipe) and the topping choices are endless. 

Let me know if you try these pancakes out on Tuesday!
