Fluffy American Pancakes

There is a coffee place in my area that serves american pancake with maple sirup; they are to die for! This summer a number of food bloggers are posting pancake pictures, so I thought let’s do it as well :-).

I meet with my best friend to try out a random recipe we found on google (bbc.co.uk, to be precise) and here it is:

12 pancakes (10 cm – 12 cm)

  • 390 g plain flour
  • 3 teaspoon (tsp) baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tablespoon (tbsp) caster sugar
  • 390 ml whole milk
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp melted butter


  1. add in one large bowl: flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
  2. in another bowl whisk: milk and egg; add melted butter and whisk again
  3. pour milk mixture into the flour bowl and beat until you have a smooth batter
  4. let the batter stand for a few minutes (I forgot this step though 🙂 )
  5. heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add a bit butter
  6. add a ladle of batter and wait till the top of the batter begins to bubble, then turn over ( pancake shall rise to about 1 cm thick)
  7. serve warm with what ever you feel like. We had pancakes with maple sirup, with fruits (strawberry, apple and melon) and fried Nuremberg sausage.


The batter was quite thick. I believe it should be so the dough is not runny in the pan, however I find them a bit dry, therefore I added around 15 ml sparkle water.

The recipe itself is alright. Measurements are quite alright, however I would try out a different recipe another time. Still need to experiment with the batter’s consistency though. Any recommendations are welcome 🙂
