The fluffiest pancakes ingredients
So what do you need to make the fluffiest pancakes ever? Surprisingly little I’m sure you will find most of these in your pantry and fridge:
- Wheat flour
- Milk (dairy free or regular)
- Baking powder
- Vanilla extract
Word of warning do not use baking soda for baking powder. It will affect the taste tremendously and not in a good way. Baking soda requires an acidic component to activate like butter milk, lemon, yogurt. Without this acidic component it will leave a bitter taste.
So only use baking soda when you have a recipe with an acidic agent in it else use baking powder like in this recipe.
Where as baking powder is already a combination of baking soda, acidic agent and rise component. Baking soda is way stronger than baking powder so if you use 1 tsp of baking soda requires at least 3 tsp of baking powder.
How to make the fluffiest pancakes
Start with two bowls. Add the flour, salt and baking powder in one bowl and whisk through. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a pan. In the second bowl whisk the egg, add the milk, vanilla extract and melted the butter. Whisk this through as well.
Now add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk it into a thick batter. Let it rest a couple of minutes while you heat a cast iron skillet or non-stick frying pan. I use a small non-stick as it easy to make the same shaped pancakes and it doesn’t take long for the pan to heat.
Heat the skillet to medium heat. Prevent the pan from getting to hot. Else the outside will be done but your inside will be far from it. Melt a little butter in the pan. Take ⅓ measuring cup and pour batter in the pan. Use the measuring cup to divide the batter evenly in the pan.
It will take about a minute for the batter to cook. You will see bubbles in the batter as it goes a little dry. Check regularly with a spatula to see if the pancake browns on the bottom. Flip the pancake and cook the other side of the pancake for 1 more minute. Put on a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.
If you want to adjust the flavor of your pancakes you can easily do that by adding the following to your batter:
- Blue berries – take about a cup full of blue berries and add these to the mix. You can slightly crush them before adding or keep them whole
- Raspberries – cut the raspberries in to small pieces before adding them to the batter
- Pineapple – just like with the raspberries cut the pineapple into small pieces before adding it into the batter
- Nutella – drizzle some Nutella on the pancake when you poured the batter in the pan. Cover with a little more batter so the Nutella is stuffed inside
How to veganize these fluffiest pancakes recipe
If you are vegan or lactose intolerant you can make this recipe work for you as well. Substitute the following:
- Milk can be easily replace with e.g. almond milk or oats milk
- Egg can be substituted for aquafaba (fluid that you can find in a can of chickpeas)
- You can substitute regular butter with vegan butter
