How to make American style fluffy pancakes

I’ve been a little off the radar this month and I’m not actually sure why as I’ve had  quite a bit of spare time on my hands… I’ve just been rubbish! So to make it up to you all I have done a blog recipe on how to do perfect American style fluffy pancakes, because who doesn’t love pancakes?!?!

This recipe makes around 9 medium pancakes, which we quickly demolished between three of us. I think next time I will be doubling the mixture! Check out my vlog recipe here and below the full recipe. I hope you like it!

 

Ingredients

  • 135g/4¾oz plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

  • 130ml/4½fl oz milk

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) – you can use oil of you don’t have butter

To serve
  • Maple syrup

  • Icing Sugar

Preparation method

  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
  2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) thick.
  4. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.
  5. Serve with lashings of real maple syrup and icing sugar!
