After several tries and many recipes later, I finally found a good ingredient combination to produce those nice, fluffy pancakes we all crave in the morning. I went through several stacks of pancakes – flat ones, dry ones, tastes-of-only-flour ones. . . But I think this one definitely did it!

  • 1 1/2 cups of flour
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Firstly, with this recipe you want to keep your wet and dry ingredients separate until ready to combine. In one bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk room temperature eggs until fluffy. Then add milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract and stir until well combined.

Now you are ready to combine your wet and dry ingredients. Pour your wet mixture into your flour mixture and gently whisk or stir together. DO NOT OVER MIX. A few lumps in your batter are good and will help in giving you fluffy pancakes. If you over mix, you risk ending up with flat, thin, pancakes.

Now, there is always a question on whether or not to leave the batter to rest for a couple of minutes either at room temperature or in the refrigerator. After some failed pancakes, I discovered it is better to use the batter right after you made it and not leave it standing. If you do not use it quickly, the air bubbles made by the baking soda reacting to the liquids, will diminish and your pancakes will not rise and have that fluffiness.

Cooking time! Heat a pan or griddle using medium to low heat and grease with cooking spray or butter if you prefer. I would recommend using an ice cream scoop to pour the batter onto the pan. I find it easier to use and your pancakes come out more uniform in size. When the surface of your pancake starts bubbling and its sides are dry, it is ready to be flipped! Transfer your cooked fluffy pancakes to a plate and spread a bit of butter on them.

You can eat them with maple syrup or honey. Maybe with some fruit or with a fried egg, like I prefer. Whichever way you choose, get creative!

      1. That’s not a stock photo, those are the actual pancakes. I always take pictures of the actual food for the recipes. 🙂 🙂

      2. It looks like it could be, but I promise you if you follow the recipe that is how they look. This is the best recipe for pancakes I’ve found!

  2. Congratulations on the recipe !. Just made the pancakes for breakfast and they turned out delicious, fluffy and light. I did not have vanilla extract . However, the pancakes are still very tasty. I would also need to confess that the eggs were not exactly at room temperature….left them outside the fridge for 30min or so. Something I found very useful and was not mentioned is if the pancakes freeze well. I am assuming it. Hopefully I can make a big batch and save it for a couple of times.
    I will never ever eat boxed pancakes. Thank you !!

  3. These pancakes were delicious and very easy. I forgot to set the eggs out to allow them to reach room temperature but it still worked. They were still super, soft, & fluffy!!!!!!

  5. Loooved these!!! I too confess that my eggs were not at room temperature but it still worked. My 5 year old sai he did not want pancakes for breakfast this morning, well let’s just say he helped AND wiped his plate clean and said they were delicious!! lol 5 out 5 stars!

  6. They were good! I made several mods: made them cruelty-free by whipping 3 tbsp of aquafaba and adding a tbsp of ground flax to the dry mix. Also, used soy milk instead of calf milk and only used about of tbsp of coconut sugar. Also used spelt flour and half cup of almond flour. Yum!

  7. These pancakes were super easy and delicious! My eggs weren’t quite room temp but it didn’t seem to matter. They were definitely the fluffiest pancakes I’ve ever made . The only change I made was adding a splash of lemon juice to my milk and letting it sit for a bit to make it more like buttermilk.

  8. It’s Sunday here in Sydney, Australia and right after mass, my husband said, bacon and pancakes would be nice. I then went online to search for pancake recipes and stumbled on this recipe of yours, we tried it and we gave it a thumbs up. Very nice and fluffy. This is our go to recipe from now on. Thank you very much.

  9. THe best fluffiest homemade pancakes ever. My hubby just said pin that recipe cause unless you make pancakes like this I don’t want them! Lol congrats on a winner!

  10. Welp they do look good but I need more practice, what is the flame I used low medium and they were undercooked, if I left them any longer they would have been burnt fluffy pancakes. Other than that I did like how fluffy they get 🙂
