The Bestest Fluffiest Pancake Recipe, you will ever need!

After years of practice….

I have finally mastered the art of making pancakes. Now at my housem pancakes are a staple of my almost weekly Sunday breakfast, and every now and again a weeknight dinner, cuz who doesn’t love pancakes for dinner too!

I have combed through recipe after recipe, and experimented enough, where I finally feel like I have found the recipe to pass down for generations to come, in my home, and I hope in your own home too.


2 cups all purpose | plain flour, (290 g | 10 oz)
1/4 cup brown sugar or sweetener, (4 tbsp | 60g | 2 oz)
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 3/4 cups milk, (440ml)
1/4 cup unsalted butter, (1/2 stick | 4 tbsp | 60g | 2 oz)
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 large egg


  1. Combine together the flour, sugar (or sweetener), baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large-sized bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the milk, slightly cooled melted butter, vanilla and egg.
  2. Use a wire whisk to mix up all the wet ingredients together first before slowly folding them into the dry ingredients. Mix together until smooth (there may be a few lumps, but that’s okay). Once you’ve mixed everything together for about 5 minutes, the batter will be thick and creamy in consistency. If you find the batter too thick and doesn’t pour off the ladle or out of the measuring cup smoothly, fold a couple tablespoons of extra milk, at a time, into the batter until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Set the batter aside and allow to rest while heating up your pan or griddle. 
  4. Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over low-medium heat and wipe over with a little butter to lightly grease pan. Pour ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and spread out gently into a round shape with the back of your ladle or measuring cup.
  5. Once the underside is nice and golden and bubbles begin to appear at the top, flip with a spatula and cook until also nice and golden.
  6. Repeat with remaining batter.
  7. Serve with honey, maple syrup, fruit, or top with your favorite ice cream or frozen yoghurt. Its even good enough to enjoy plain!

Bon Appétit!
