fluffy pancake recipe
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Additional butter or oil for cooking
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients Make sure you have all the ingredients measured and ready to go.
Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
Step 3: Prepare Wet Ingredients In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract (if using).
Step 4: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; it’s okay if there are a few lumps.
Step 5: Preheat Griddle or Pan Preheat a griddle or non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a little butter or oil to coat the surface.
Step 6: Scoop Batter onto Griddle Using a ladle or measuring cup, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. You can adjust the size based on your preference.
Step 7: Cook Until Bubbles Form Cook the pancakes until you see bubbles forming on the surface. This usually takes 2-3 minutes.
Step 8: Flip the Pancakes Once the bubbles have formed, flip the pancakes using a spatula. Cook the other side for an additional 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 9: Repeat Continue this process until you’ve used all the batter, adding more butter or oil to the griddle as needed.
Step 10: Serve Serve the pancakes warm with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, or nuts.
