Weekends are to me the time of the week I want to treat myself with a fancy breakfast, which sometimes turns out to be a brunch depending on when I get up (although I love getting up early). But with a long week behind me, I often happen to be lazy, and for these lazy mornings, this easy breakfast recipe is just perfect.
In order to make the best fluffy pancakes. It all starts with the batter. Too thick and they will be undercooked on the inside. Too runny, and the pancakes will spread out and won’t fluff up. I like to test the batter with my spoon or ladle, lifting it gently above the rim of the bowl. It has to be thick but also able to run slowly and nicely off of the spoon. A couple of lumps is alright, but I do like to smooth out my batter as much as I can gently with a wire whisk.
how to cook perfect pancakes
- Preheat your good quality, non stick pan or griddle on medium heat first. Once it’s hot ,you can then lower the heat down to low-medium heat. Wait for about two minutes. This part is crucial and so worth it. Lightly grease the pan with a small amount of butter, and wipe away any excess butter with a sheet of paper towel.
Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to pour your batter so you get perfect, evenly sized pancakes. Start pouring the batter from the middle, then continue pouring slowly in a circular motion so that the batter then spreads into perfect round shapes.
Allow the pancakes to cook properly! Don’t rush them and put them on high heat, or flip them too early. Let the flip side cook to a beautiful golden brown color, and when bubbles start forming on top and around the surface they are then ready to flip.
How to get that flip perfected without creating lopsided pancakes? Grab a good, plastic spatula and slide it underneath the pancake. Use your WRIST to gently flip them You’ll know what I mean when you’re in front of your pan ready to flip. This definitely does makes a big difference.
perfect pancakes. Almost like a good sponge cake!

Use a wire whisk to whisk the wet ingredients together first before slowly folding them into the dry ingredients. Mix together until smooth.
(The batter will be thick and creamy in consistency. If you find the batter too thick — doesn’t pour off the ladle or out of the measuring cup smoothly — fold a couple tablespoons of extra milk into the batter at a time until reaching desired consistency).
Set the batter aside and allow to rest while heating up your pan or griddle.
Heat a non-stick 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.
When the underside is golden and bubbles begin to appear on the surface, flip with a spatula and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve with honey, maple syrup, seasonal fruits, ice cream, or frozen yoghurt, frozen berries can be used as toppings or it can be enjoyed plain!
