Fluffy American Pancakes

Weekend breakfast doesn’t get better than homemade Fluffy American Pancakes – This basic recipe will get you guaranteed fluffy results every time!


Pancake’s day is coming up next week – Did you really think I would leave you without a new pancakes recipe for the occasion? Of course not. And what’s better way to celebrate than a HUGE stack of classic super fluffy American pancakes?

I’m usually a fan of easy and quick recipes when it comes to breakfast, but I would never EVER say no to pancakes over weekend!

These classic Fluffy American Pancakes are incredibly easy to prepare and ready in just 15 min.

Best of all, you only need simple ingredients you most probably have in your kitchen already: egg, milk, flour, baking powder and sugar. It really doesn’t get easier than this.

Once you your pancakes are ready, top them up with anything you like. Think nuts, fruits, chocolate, maple syrup or honey. I love to use any fruit I have on hand and a bit of maple syrup, and when I’m feeling indulgent a little of chocolate sauce.

This is such a basic recipe, so just make sure you follow it accurately. Here below are some simple tricks to get guaranteed fluffy results every single time!

3 Tips To Make The Best American Pancakes

1. Do not Over Mix The Batter

It’s super important to mix the dry wet ingredients in two separate bowls, and just mix together all the ingredients at the very end, to avoid the risk to over-mixing the batter. If you over-mix the batter the pancakes will be somehow denser and flat, not really what you expect from a fluffy American pancakes recipe, right?

2. Rest The Batter

To get that fluffy and tender result, the batter needs to rest a little time before cooking. resting the batter for a minimum of 5 min allows the gluten in it to “relax”, resulting into smooth and better pancakes.

3. Set The Right Temperature

The next important thing to remember is to keep an eye on the temperature of the griddle when you cook your pancakes. The more you cook your pancakes the dryer they become, so getting the temperature right is a MUST.

Make sure to preheat your skillet/griddle to 375F/190C. If your griddle doesn’t have a thermometer or you use a regular skillet, keep your temperature to “medium” and heat for about 10 min before adding the batter. If you’re not quite sure you have reached the right temperature, just test with a small pancake first and adjust the heat accordingly.Weekend breakfast doesn't get better than homemade Fluffy American Pancakes - This basic recipe will get you guaranteed fluffy results every time!
