Light 'n Fluffy Pancakes

Normally I'm a "simply add water" kinda girl when it comes to pancakes. I mean, really, why measure out all those ingredients when you can just dump in a little H2O and call it a day? That was until I sank my teeth into these heavenly pancakes., people. Can we say ri-DANG-diculous? Seriously, these pancakes are really amazing. Definitely worth going to the hassle of measuring out all those dry ingredients for. I found the recipe on a bag of flour from Trader Joe's and thought the sound of "Light n' Fluffy Pancakes" had a pretty nice ring to it.

I actually used this flour.

There's something about using unbleached flour that makes me feel better serving things like this to my family. King Arthur flour is good, quality stuff. (as is the Trader Joe's version, I'm sure.)


1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1-1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
For slightly sweeter pancakes, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.

1) In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.

2) Heat a lightly oiled (I used butter--but make sure your griddle's not too hot) griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot. Yields about 6-8 pancakes.

So imagine this scenario with me:

Waking up Christmas morning and diving into the perfectly proportioned amount of butter to syrup ratio on a short stack of hot light n' fluffy pancakes (with a side of deliciously crunchy bacon). Did I rope ya in yet? Do it. That'll be one Christmas tradition you'll never get sick of!


  1. hi Kat! I was on a quest to try to duplicate the best pancakes I've ever had in my life several months ago. The pancakes are from a little diner that we drive 40 miles to for breakfast, they're that good! They are almost like crepes, thin and delish! I gave up after a couple of months of trying, but your recipe, although different looks wonderful! I will definitely try them. Thank you for sharing it! Your post also gives me the idea to take a photo of them the next time we're there and then post them and see if anyone has a recipe. I've exhausted google myself;)

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  5. I know from personal experience, this is, hands down, THE BEST PANCAKE RECIPE EVER!

  6. Very similar to my mom/grandmother's recipe. my kids' friends used to ask for the recipe to give to their moms!
    Mine starts with the egg Beaten), then buttermilk/soured milk,then dry ingredients, one at a time and ends with 1/3 cup oil. Only one bowl to wash. Over the years, i've made it more nutritious by using half white, half whole wheat flour, adding oat bran and wheat germ and after the batter is poured, organic blueberries.

  7. I am making these as I type, I will post the results later :) I am always searching for from scratch recipes because I only believe in feeding my family the best. I did some minor tweaks to my desire, I doubled the recipe, I have a big family I grinded some rock cane sugar (I do not use granulated sugar) and I cook my pancakes with coconut oil !!! to die for

  8. All I can say is WOW AMAZING !!!!

  9. Thank you! Excellent recipe. They were so thick I expected them to be chewy but they basically melted in my mouth. The only change I made was to add about a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I made them small, like silver dollar pancakes. Worked perfectly.
