HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY PANCAKES

recipe for making fluffy pancakes:

Ingredients Instructions
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
1 teaspoon salt 3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter, as it can result in tough pancakes.
1 tablespoon white sugar 4. Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Grease with cooking spray or butter.
1 1/4 cups milk 5. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour batter onto the griddle or skillet. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges start to dry, then flip and cook until golden brown.
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Some tips for making fluffy pancakes:

  • Use baking powder instead of baking soda. Baking powder is a combination of baking soda and an acid, which helps to create the rise in the pancakes.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Stir until just combined, as overmixing can cause the pancakes to be tough and dense.
  • Let the batter rest for a few minutes before cooking. This helps the gluten in the flour to relax, which can result in lighter, fluffier pancakes.
  • Use a nonstick griddle or skillet, and grease it lightly with cooking spray or butter to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  • Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion out the batter for each pancake. This ensures that each pancake is roughly the same size, which helps them to cook evenly.
  • Cook the pancakes over medium heat. Cooking them too quickly on high heat can cause them to burn on the outside and be undercooked on the inside.

Here are the ingredients for the fluffy pancake recipe in table format:

FLUFFY PANCAKE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

The ingredients for fluffy pancakes are simple. For this recipe you’ll need:

  • All-Purpose Flour- I like to use regular all-purpose flour, but you could swap it for a 1:1 gluten-free all-purpose flour.
  • Baking Powdera leavening agent that helps the batter rise and creates fluffy pancakes. If you’re out, I have a recipe for pancakes without baking powder here.
  • Saltto enhance the flavor of the other ingredients.
  • Sugarjust enough to make these pancakes lightly sweet.
  • Milkuse regular milk or your favorite non-dairy alternative.
  • Eggto bind the ingredients and help the pancakes hold together.
  • Butter (optional)adds delicious, buttery flavor.

I hope this helps!

HOW TO MAKE FLUFFIER PANCAKES FROM SCRATCH

recipe for making fluffier pancakes from scratch:

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

Instructions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the egg and then stir in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter, as this can result in tough pancakes.
  4. Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the baking powder to activate and the gluten in the flour to relax, resulting in fluffier pancakes.
  5. Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. Grease with cooking spray or butter.
  6. Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to portion out the batter for each pancake. Pour the batter onto the griddle or skillet.
  7. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges start to dry, then flip and cook until golden brown.
  8. Serve hot with butter and maple syrup, or any other desired toppings.
Some additional tips for making fluffier pancakes:
  • Use fresh ingredients, especially baking powder. Baking powder loses its potency over time, so using fresh baking powder will help your pancakes rise better.
  • Use buttermilk instead of regular milk. The acidity in buttermilk reacts with the baking powder, resulting in fluffier pancakes. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make a substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup of milk and letting it sit for a few minutes until it curdles.
  • Don’t overmix the batter. Stir until just combined, as overmixing can cause the pancakes to be tough and dense.
  • Let the batter rest for a few minutes before cooking. This helps the gluten in the flour to relax, which can result in lighter, fluffier pancakes.
  • Use a nonstick griddle or skillet, and grease it lightly with cooking spray or butter to prevent the pancakes from sticking.
  • Cook the pancakes over medium heat. Cooking them too quickly on high heat can cause them to burn on the outside and be undercooked on the inside.

HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PANCAKE BATTER FOR FLUFFY PANCAKES

The best pancake batter is one that is not overmixed, and its consistency isn’t too liquidy. Pancake batter should be thick, without lumps, and even.

Pancake batter that is too thin will yield flat pancakes without much fluff. In this video below, I share what pancake batter should look like, how to substitute milk in a pancake recipe, and more.

THE BEST SYRUP FOR FLUFFY PANCAKES

When it comes to choosing the best syrup for fluffy pancakes, it’s a matter of personal preference. However, here are some popular options that pair well with fluffy pancakes:

  1. Maple syrup: This is the classic pancake syrup and a favorite among many. Look for pure maple syrup, which is made from the sap of maple trees and has a richer, more complex flavor than artificially flavored syrups.
  2. Honey: Honey is a natural sweetener and can be a great alternative to maple syrup. It has a different flavor profile and pairs well with fruit toppings.
  3. Fruit syrups: These can be made from a variety of fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries. Simply cook the fruit with sugar and water until it thickens and forms a syrup.
  4. Chocolate syrup: For a decadent twist on traditional syrup, try chocolate syrup. It’s rich, indulgent, and pairs well with whipped cream and fruit.
  5. Caramel syrup: Caramel syrup has a rich, buttery flavor that can be a great addition to fluffy pancakes. It pairs well with nuts and bananas.

 

Ultimately, the best syrup for fluffy pancakes is the one that you enjoy the most!

HOW TO MAKE-AHEAD FLUFFY PANCAKES

If you want to make fluffy pancakes ahead of time, here are some tips:

  1. Make the batter ahead of time: You can make the pancake batter the night before and store it in the refrigerator. This will save you time in the morning and allow the batter to rest overnight, resulting in even fluffier pancakes. Just be sure to give the batter a quick stir before using it.
  2. Cook the pancakes ahead of time: You can also cook the pancakes ahead of time and reheat them in the morning. To do this, let the pancakes cool completely, then wrap them in plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator or freezer. When you’re ready to serve them, reheat them in the microwave or oven until heated through.
  3. Freeze the batter: Another option is to freeze the pancake batter in individual portions. Use an ice cream scoop or measuring cup to portion out the batter onto a lined baking sheet. Freeze the portions until solid, then transfer them to a resealable freezer bag. When you’re ready to make pancakes, simply thaw the batter in the refrigerator overnight and cook as usual.
  4. Freeze the pancakes: If you have leftover pancakes, you can freeze them for later. Let them cool completely, then wrap them in plastic wrap and store them in the freezer. When you’re ready to serve them, reheat them in the microwave or oven until heated through.

By following these tips, you can enjoy fluffy pancakes without having to spend as much time in the kitchen in the morning!

Why are restaurant pancakes so fluffy?

There are a few reasons why restaurant pancakes are often fluffier than homemade pancakes:

  1. Ingredients: Restaurants may use different types of flour or leavening agents to achieve a fluffier texture. For example, they may use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour or add additional baking powder to the batter.
  2. Batter Preparation: Restaurants often prepare their pancake batter ahead of time and let it rest before cooking. This allows the gluten in the batter to relax, resulting in a more tender and fluffy texture.
  3. Cooking Technique: Restaurants may also use a different cooking technique, such as cooking the pancakes on a griddle or using a higher heat, which can result in a fluffier pancake.
  4. Equipment: Restaurants may use specialized equipment, such as pancake molds or ring molds, to create perfectly round and fluffy pancakes.

Overall, restaurants may use different techniques and ingredients to achieve a fluffier pancake than what can be easily achieved at home. However, with the right ingredients and techniques, it is possible to make fluffy pancakes at home too.

What is the secret to good pancakes?

Certainly! Here’s a table with the secrets to making good pancakes:

Secret Explanation
Properly measuring ingredients Use measuring cups and spoons to accurately measure ingredients. Too much or too little of an ingredient can affect the texture and flavor of the pancakes.
Don’t overmix the batter Overmixing the batter can develop gluten and result in tough, chewy pancakes. Mix until just combined and leave some lumps in the batter.
Resting the batter Letting the batter rest for a few minutes before cooking allows the gluten to relax and results in a more tender pancake.
Using the right heat Use medium heat to cook the pancakes. Too high heat can burn the pancakes, while too low heat can result in undercooked pancakes.
Properly greasing the pan Use butter, oil or cooking spray to grease the pan. Too little grease can result in sticking pancakes, while too much can result in greasy pancakes.
Knowing when to flip Wait until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges start to dry before flipping. This ensures that the pancake is cooked through and doesn’t fall apart when flipped.
Keeping them warm To prevent the pancakes from getting cold while cooking the rest, keep them warm in a 200°F (93°C) oven until ready to serve.

By following these secrets, you can make delicious and fluffy pancakes every time!

How do you make pancakes more fluffy?
Tip Explanation
Use baking powder Baking powder is a leavening agent that helps pancakes rise and become fluffy. Make sure it’s fresh and not expired.
Use buttermilk Buttermilk is slightly acidic and helps activate the baking powder, resulting in fluffier pancakes. If you don’t have buttermilk, you can use regular milk with a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice added to it.
Separate the eggs Separate the egg whites from the yolks and beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold them into the batter gently for a lighter and fluffier texture.
Don’t overmix Overmixing develops gluten and can result in tough, dense pancakes. Mix until just combined and leave some lumps in the batter.
Rest the batter Letting the batter rest for a few minutes allows the gluten to relax and results in a more tender pancake.
Use the right heat Use medium heat to cook the pancakes. Too high heat can burn the pancakes, while too low heat can result in undercooked pancakes.
Don’t press down on the pancakes Pressing down on the pancakes with a spatula can compress them and make them less fluffy.
Use a measuring cup Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the pan for uniform size and cooking.
Flip only once Flipping the pancakes multiple times can cause them to deflate and become less fluffy. Wait until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake and the edges start to dry before flipping.

By following these tips, you can make pancakes that are light, fluffy, and delicious!
