Light & Fluffy Pancakes

Updated: Oct 7, 2023

“Light, fluffy and hot off the griddle! Delicious Saturday morning breakfast I loved to make my kiddos when they were little. Now you can make them in your kitchen in minutes!”

Light & Fluffy Pancakes Servings – 12-15 Pancakes Prep Time – 20 Minutes Cook Time – 5 Minutes per Pancake Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose 1/4 cup sugar or sweetener 4 teaspoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 3/4 cups milk 1/4 cup butter 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract 1 large egg

*Optional add ins: Fresh blueberries or strawberries, chocolate or peanut butter chips, banana slices, or colored sprinkles.


Preheat oven to 200°F; have a baking sheet or heatproof platter ready to keep cooked pancakes warm in the oven.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or oil), and egg. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not overmix; a few small lumps are fine).

Heat a large skillet (nonstick or cast-iron griddle) over medium. Fold a sheet of paper towel in half, and moisten with oil; carefully rub skillet with oiled paper towel.

For each pancake, spoon 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon to spread batter into a round (you should be able to fit 2 to 3 in a large skillet). Place add ins on each pancake at this time while batter is wet.

Cook until surface of pancakes have some bubbles and a few have burst, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Transfer to a baking sheet or platter; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and keep warm in oven. Continue with more oil and remaining batter. (You'll have 12 to 15 pancakes.) Serve warm, with desired toppings.

Recipe Notes:

Serve with an assortment toppings such as butter, maple syrup, confectioners'

sugar, honey, jams, preserves, sweetened whipped cream, or chocolate syrup.

Flavorful and light, these pancakes are cheaper to make than buying a pre-made mix and don't have any hidden ingredients—plus, homemade tastes so much better. They're so quick and easy, you'll never reach for the pancake mix again."
