Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How To Prepare:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the baking powder, salt, flour And powdered sugar until combined. 
  2. Whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract in a different bowl until thoroughly mixed. 
  3. Stream the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter; overmixing can result in dense pancakes. 
  4. Preheat a non-stick griddle or a skillet over medium heat. If needed, lightly grease the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter. 
  5. Pour around 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake using a measuring cup or spoon. Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges look set, usually around 2-3 minutes.
  6. Reverse the pancakes using a spatula and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown.  
  7. Transfer the cooked pancakes to a warm plate and cover them with a clean kitchen towel to keep them warm while you cook the remaining batter.
  8. Repeat the process with the staying batter, adding more butter or cooking spray to the grill if necessary. 
  9. Serve the pancakes warm with your favoured toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, chocolate chips, or a dollop of whipped cream. 

Tips for Perfect Pancakes:

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Stir until the ingredients are just combined. Overmixing can lead to tough pancakes.
  • Allow the batter to rest for a few minutes before cooking. This helps the gluten relax and results in tender pancakes.
  • Adjust the heat as needed. If the pancakes are browning too quickly, diminish the heat slightly. If they take too long to cook, increase the heat.
  • Consider adding a pinch of cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg, or a handful of blueberries to the batter for additional flavour.
  • With this homemade pancake recipe, you can enjoy fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth pancakes right in the comfort of your kitchen. Customize them with your favourite toppings and get creative with flavours to make your breakfast memorable. Whether it’s a lazy Sunday morning or a weekday treat, these pancakes will bring smiles to everyone around the table. So, grab your spatula and get ready to flip some deliciousness onto your plate!
