american fluffy pancake recipe
here’s a recipe for classic American fluffy pancakes that are light, airy, and oh-so-delicious! This recipe serves 4 people and can easily be doubled or halved depending on your needs.
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 1/4 cups whole milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- Vegetable oil for cooking
- Maple syrup and butter for serving
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar until well combined.
- In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter until smooth.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter.
- Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Once the pan is hot, lightly brush it with vegetable oil.
- Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the hot skillet or griddle. Cook until the edges of the pancake begin to set and the surface begins to bubble, about 2-3 minutes.
- Use a spatula to flip the pancake and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until the other side is golden brown.
- Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan lightly with oil between batches.
- Serve the pancakes warm with maple syrup and butter.
- Be sure to measure your ingredients carefully to ensure that the pancakes turn out fluffy and delicious.
- Don’t overmix the batter as this can lead to tough, dense pancakes.
- Use a nonstick pan or griddle to ensure that the pancakes don’t stick and cook evenly.
- Don’t press down on the pancakes while cooking as this can make them dense.
- If you like your pancakes extra fluffy, you can separate the egg and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form before folding them into the batter.
