Fluffy vanilla pancakes

Fluffy vanilla pancakes


Happy Pancake Day!

Here’s a quick and simple recipe for you guys to make fluffy, sweet, pillowy pancakes. You don’t need buttermilk or anything fancy for these, and you should have everything you need already in the pantry/fridge!


If you’re making these for a group larger than 2-3 then double/triple the recipe accordingly. You can stir chocolate chips through the batter for chocolate chip pancakes too!

150g plain flour

2tsp baking powder

3 tbsp caster sugar (or less if you don’t want them as sweet)

200ml milk (semi-skimmed or whole)

1 large egg

30g butter, melted

1tsp vanilla extract 

1. Sift the flour, baking powder and sugar in to a bowl

2. Mix the milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter together with a whisk. (Make sure the butter isn’t still hot)

3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix lightly. Don’t stir out the lumps – this gives fluffy pancakes!

4. Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat and add some butter. Spoon batter on to the pan and cook on each side for a few minutes until bubbles form and stay and the edges of the pancakes dull a little. Flip and cook on the other side briefly as it doesn’t take as long.


5. Serve with nutella, biscoff spread, fresh fruit, syrup, icing sugar or anything that takes your fancy! (No one will judge you for insisting on ALL of the above).



Thanks to my flatmate for artfully pouring syrup over the top so I could get a picture!
