Fluffy Pancakes Recipe – The Best On Earth!

If you are still searching for the best, fluffiest pancake recipe on earth, it is right here.

This is one of those recipes that has been passed down through the family for generations. My auntie is the one who shared it with me and we’ve been making these fluffy pancakes at our house for decades.

I mean, just look at how gorgeous these pancakes are…

How to make Fluffy Pancakes

This recipe is so good, it made it inside my cookbook, truly the perfect pancake recipe.

Sadly, I had to quit making these for a few months, when I gave up grain and my son switched to a gluten-free diet. The other 3 people in the house continued to eat these pancakes while I perfected my gluten-free pancake recipe (yes, the gluten-free ones are just as fluffy and wonderful!).

It’s a good thing both recipes freeze well! Even though my family often enjoys two separate pancake recipes, I never have to cook twice. What I like to do is make a full (or even double) batch of pancakes to stock my freezer. This way the kids can grab one, pop it in the toaster for a hearty breakfast of the fluffiest pancakes ever. It really is the perfect way to start the day.

If you are wondering, here’s how you freeze pancakes so you can make mornings that much easier at your house too!

These pancakes are so delicious you won’t want to top them with ordinary syrup. Don’t worry, I have you covered with the best homemade fruity syrups ever.

Try my recipe for homemade strawberry syrup. This is so simple to make and is a healthier alternative to what you’d find in the store or even at popular pancake restaurants. My strawberry syrup recipe is made with real ingredients so you can feel good about what’s topping your pancakes!

If blueberries are more your style, then you are going to want this recipe for fresh blueberry syrup. Again, made with real ingredients both because it’s better for you and because it ends up tasting so much better than the more artificial version you get at pancake houses. Seriously, this stuff is the best.

  • Author: SuperGlueMom's Auntie
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 15 mins
  • Yield: 6
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Cuisine: Family Favorites

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  2. Make a “volcano” well in the middle (as my son calls it) and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix with a fork or whisk until smooth.
  3. Heat a non-stick griddle or large pan over medium-high heat (I set my griddle at 300-350 F). Pour or scoop 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form to flip. Brown on the other side and serve with butter and blueberry syrup.

Whole-wheat flour substitutions:
100% whole wheat – add an additional teaspoon of baking powder + 1 Tablespoon milk.
50% whole wheat – add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.
