Fluffy Old Fashioned Homemade Pancakes

When you have a little time on a weekend morning for a fun breakfast, pancakes are perfect! They are easy to throw together and are made with ingredients you typically already have. Plus, they are easy to change up with different mix-ins and toppings. Pancakes are a simple, versatile breakfast sure to satisfy all!

And to make things even better, this recipe yields the most fluffy pancakes! No thin, tough pancakes here.

I’ve actually been giving these to the twins a fair amount lately. Their swimming lessons are early in the morning and they’re only allowed to eat carbs before the lesson, so pancakes have been a hit. They are loving these and I love how easy they are to make.

What You’ll Need

Making pancakes from scratch only requires a few simple ingredients. (You can even use this recipe to make a DIY pancake mix ahead of time – see details later in this post.)

To make homemade pancakes you will need:

  • all-purpose flour
  • sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • egg
  • milk
  • butter
  • vanilla

That’s it! Odds are you already have most of this in your kitchen. These pancakes were meant to be.

How to Make Pancakes from Scratch

So now that I’ve told you these are easy, fluffy and delicious, let’s talk about how to make them.

  • Combine the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately. Mix the wet ingredients in a medium bowl. Use a large bowl for the dry ingredients.
  • Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Gently fold them together. You don’t want to do this too brusquely or overdo it. It can over develop the gluten in flour and end up giving you dense, tough pancakes. You’ll end up with some lumps in your batter and that’s ok.
  • Heat the griddle. Let the batter rest while you heat your griddle or pan. Give the batter another little stir before using it and you’ll notice any remaining lumps will break up a bit.
  • Cook your pancakes. Spoon batter onto your griddle about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup at a time, depending on how large you want your pancakes to be.
  • Flip. You’ll know they are ready to be flipped when they’ve got bubbles coming through the top and the edges are set. I usually cook them until they are just about done, so after I flip them, they just need a little more time to finish cooking the other side so that it’s golden.
  • Dig in! Finally, serve your pancakes warm with your favorite maple syrup!

Tips for the Best Pancakes:

  • Don’t over mix. Be sure not to over mix your pancake batter so that you don’t get tough, dense pancakes. Lumps are ok.
  • Use a flat cooking surface. For a nice looking pancake, cook on a flat surface. A griddle is preferable.
  • Make smaller pancakes. Don’t make your pancakes too large, or they’ll be difficult to flip.
  • When to flip a pancake: Your pancakes are ready to be flipped when you see plenty of bubbles coming through the surface and the edges are set.
  • Pancake mix-in ideas: Mix ins make these even more fun! Try adding sprinkles, chocolate chips or fresh fruit to your batter.

How to Make Pancake Mix

If you wanted to make these pancakes even easier to make, you could combine the dry ingredients ahead of time and have it in your pantry as a pancake mix. You’ll want to put it in an airtight container. It should keep well, as long as the flour and baking powder you use is fresh.

Can I Freeze These?

These pancakes do wonderfully when frozen and reheated! I’ve been doing it a ton with the boys. The mornings are rushed, so frozen is a nice shortcut.

You can either layer parchment paper between the pancakes when you freeze them so they don’t stick to each other, or you can lay the pancakes out individually onto a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze them that way. Once frozen, pop them all into an airtight container or bag.

How to Reheat Extras

To reheat them, microwave one pancake for about 20 seconds. Add another 5-10 seconds as you add additional pancakes. If you know you’re going to have pancakes in the morning, you could even pop the number of pancakes you’ll need into the fridge the night before so they thaw (which is what I’ve been doing). Either way, these reheat beautifully.

Description

This Homemade Pancakes Recipe makes soft & fluffy pancakes. Get ready to dig into a stack of the best pancakes you’ve ever had!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (260g) all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp (52g) sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups (360ml) milk
  • 4 tbsp (56g) butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In a large measuring cup, combine the egg, milk, butter and vanilla extract.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold them together until well combined, but still a little lumpy. You don’t want to over mix them or they could end up less fluffy and tough. The batter should be relatively thick, but easily pourable.
  4. Set the batter aside to rest while you heat the griddle, 5-10 minutes. Any remaining lumps with start to soften as the moisture soaks in. Gently stir again.
  5. Heat a griddle or non-stick pan over medium-low heat and melt a little butter to grease it. Pour batter onto the pan and let it spread out into a round pancake. I used about 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake.
  6. Allow to cook until bubbles appear on the surface and the edges are set, then flip and cook until golden.
  7. Continue cooking with the remaining batter.
  8. Serve pancakes with maple syrup or your choice of toppings.

    These are so fluffy. Great flavor. But dang this batter is SO thick I keep thinking in mismeasuring. Maybe it’s off because I’m somewhere arid and high altitudes???

  2. Elgwana

    Greetings!
    I Made these and they turned out ok. Not epic unfortunately, but that’s probably not the recipes fault, I used pastry flour 🤣.
    I’ll probs be making these again! 😁😁😁

  3. AKomarek

    Yum! Best pancake recipe ever! These are not only as pretty as the picture, they are delicious. I will never buy pancake mix again.

  4. Michelle

    SOOOOO DELICIOUS! I didn’t have vanilla extract or regular dairy milk, so I used Silk brand- less sugar vanilla almond milk, and they came out perfect!

  5. Danielle

    This recipe never lets me down. I am a pancake fool and have never found a recipe that produces perfect pancakes, such as this one. I fold frozen blueberries in the batter & eat these with maple syrup. I am not a regular recipe reviewer but I had to give a shout out for this one. I purchase whole milk just to make these pancakes. Thank you, Lindsay!

  6. Tim

    This recipie was so good I ended up eating too much and making myself sick for around 3 hours five stars!

  7. Avery

    These turned out so good. I used Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free flour blend, and was worried at first because the batter was clumpy, but they turned out smooth and tasty! Thanks

  8. Chiara

    They look amazing! I can’t wait to try them! I have a lot of oat flour, do you think I can substitute the 2 cups (260 g) of all-purpose flour for 2 cups (260 g) of oat flour? Or they absorb liquids in different ways? Thank you!

  9. Veni Laksono

    Thank you so much for the recipe
    I am from Indonesia
    I love your recipe blogs
    Especially you write down the 2 measure in grams and cups
    It made me easier for me
    I have made pancake many times with my kids
    And they love the pancakes so much
    I shared your recipe blog to my friends
    And told them how easy your recipe to be made
    And we can find the ingredients at our place
    If you don’t mind
    Please give us the tools you use
    Somehow i wonder, did i make the recipe right
    Whether i used spatula/spoon/whisk to mix the batter

    Thanks again
    Hope you and your family always happy and healthy too

    I felt this recipe came out relatively thick pancakes came out too thick they didn’t seem very soft. Can you tell me what I did wrong. I would love to make this recipe again thanks

    1. Lindsay

      It’s possible that you over measured the flour. A food scale is best, otherwise try using a spoon to spoon flour into your measuring cup. You don’t want to pack the flour in.

      1. Fran P

        Thanks, I think that’s what I did. Will use the spoon method next time. Will let you know how it turns out. 😊

  11. Charlene

    Amazing recipe! I’ve been looking for a go-to fluffy pancake recipe and I’ve finally found it! Been making this almost every Saturday for Hubby and I. Added fresh blueberries to the batter and it was delish! Thank you so much for sharing ☺️

  12. Carly

    Wow!! These are the best pancakes I’ve ever had, no joke. I had a random craving at 4 am and thought, let’s give it a try. So glad I did! Now if only the UI of the website didn’t require me to scroll past all the other comments to leave a rating c; a thought for whoever designs the website. But these pancakes! Are incredible!!

  13. Tammy

    Awesome! We added blueberries to the batter & perfection! DH says best ever 🙂 I’ve yet to make one of your recipes that isn’t wonderful!

  14. Maria

    Oh my, this recipe is the best pancake recipe I’ve ever tried! My kids always request pancakes on Saturday morning and these have definitely won first place. I followed the recipe perfectly as written and it takes the cake 🙂 Fluffiest and best tasting pancakes I’ve ever made. Wow, thanks for sharing!! 

  15. Nolwazi

    I am grateful for this recipe, I tried this Flapjacks recipe and it is the best thus far! I look forward to having more recipes from you. from now on I’d like you to guide me on how to follow you on your pages. You are indeed reliable! Love at first sight 🙂 🙂

  16. Ani

    I usually make thin pancakes but I wanted to try out the fluffy ones…. I was not disappointed! This recipe is easy and the pancakes are delicious!

  17. Lara Kennedy

    Wow!!! These are literally the fluffiest and most delicious pancakes I’ve ever made. I added a bit more milk and made sure not to over mix the batter. They’re fantastic! I’ve made a ton of pancakes and nothing beats these. My one year old loves these with a bit of peanut butter on them. I want to make these everyday lol! Thank you so much for this fabulous recipe. Truly the best.

  18. Cynthia

    I’ve tried soooo many so called fluffy pancake recipes and none have ever worked until now! This is such an easy recipe, these are really difficult to muck up, and they taste amazing! Thank you thank you thank you!  This is now our families ‘go to’ pancake recipe. Do it, you will not be disappointed, it actually works with minimal effort. Just stick to the suggestions, particularly the size of them and not over mixing and these will be perfect!  Wish I could post a pick of them! 

  19. Suez

    My favorite breakfast dish. Only I love them with chocolate cream or plain sugar. And I also make small ones in a small frying pan to make it easier to eat. Brilliant recipe, thank you for adding it.

  20. N Fard

    Delicious!!! My husband and kids request for these every day!!! Thank you for sharing the Recipe. No Need to order from restaurants. 

  21. Trenetta Saba

    This is a great recipe. It comes out perfect each time I make it. Going camping with a large group. I said I’d make pancakes. Can this recipe be doubled?

  22. Em

    Delicious! I used vanilla oat milk but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will never use another pancake recipe!

  23. Ruth's Travel: Because I Believe Blog

    Hello!

    I followed this recipe and this is the best pancakes I have ever made – no jokes!
    2 days later, I still get a compliment that they were fluffy and excellent.
    Thanks for sharing! This is pure magic and it’s such an easy to remember recipe!

  24. Andrea

    I have tried dozens of pancake recipes and this is the BEST I have ever made! The BEST! Thank you so much for sharing!

  25. Monica Burge

    Never had a better pancake! We always use instant pancakes and we didn’t have any so we tried this. So so good! My butter was chunky because when it hit the milk and eggs it got cold so I’m not sure what I did wrong but they still tasted great! 

  26. Pallavi

    Amazing! Such a great texture and lightness and will be a great base for other flavors of pancake! To modify to our taste, I added 1tbsp less sugar, 2 cups milk, 1tsp almond extract, and made them Lemon-blueberry by adding the zest of one lemon and a cup of blueberries. 

  27. Tina

    Finally found a recipe that actually gives me fluffy pancakes!! So glad I stumbled upon your site! Thank you so much!! Blessings!

    1. Lindsay

      The butter is warm and is being added to cold ingredients, so that can happen. You can let the butter cool a bit before adding it if you like, but it really should be fine even if it’s a little lumpy.

  28. Vanessa

    I love pancake Sunday’s with my hubby. We always make pancakes with the Stonewall Kitchen brand. We ran out of the mix and I scoured the internet for a pancake recipe based on reviews. This was our first time making pancakes from scratch and we loved this recipe! We followed the directions to a tee and can’t wait to make and eat them again every Sunday going forward! Thank you!

  29. MIlena

    You should make the bannana and keep the chocolate chips, I don’t know if you have kisses chocolate, but if you use an ice cream scooper, scoop some pancake in it then insert the kisses, it melts in the middle, and it is a nice surprise!!!

  30. Jamielene

    These turned out excellent! It’ll be our go-to for pancakes for a long time to come 🙂 The best part is the mix is the perfect amount for one round of pancakes in our family of 6!
    Thank you so much!

  31. Anna

    The BEST pancakes I’ve ever eaten!!!

    My kids love banana chocolate chip pancakes so I actually made the recipe exactly as is but mushed up two overly ripe bananas and threw in a couple chocolate chips as well.  They were sooooo good!  I thought the batter looked super thick and dense but once I cooked them they were so light and fluffy.  Thank you!!  🙂

    1. Anna

      Also I did have to spread out the batter a bit to avoid them being insanely super thick.  Might have been the bananas I threw in.  But with the bananas it was so delicious and sweet.  Barely needed any maple syrup

  32. Milena

    SOOOOOOOO good !!! Iove it. I made it for my parents with my brother and it was DELICIOUS. I only made 1/2 of the recipe because I did’nt know how many pancakes it makes. It makes a LOT! I was able to make 12 little pancakes!!!!!!! And there was still some batter left over. We are gluten intolerint so, we put gluten free all purpuse flower and it worked the same. Acatually, I think it tasted better!!! Thank you for your delicious recepie!!!

  33. Donnell Jones

    I was saying I forgot to get some pancake mix from the store yesterday and my son loves for Daddy too cook pancakes on Sundays it’s a Jones Thing lol. I found this recipe my son said Daddy I don’t want to store pancakes anymore Thanks for saving the JonesJones Sunday morning 

  34. Sally

    Hi Lindsay, i made these pancakes last night it was rainy and cold here in New England . They were easy to make, your recipe and directions were perfect. And we LOVED them. I cooked the whole batch and had a few left over. To good to throw away. I put them in the toaster For lunch and they were perfect. Such a keeper recipe. Thank you and be safe. Hugs, Sally

  35. Kimberly

    …made this for my autistic son, whose picky about everything- now, for the past 3 days I’ve been making this for his breakfast- “pancakes from scratch, pancakes from scratch!!”- hes very very specific that it MUST be these! Lol- thanks for such an amazing recipe- no changes were made!!! it’s perfect-

  36. Hina Patel

    I saw someone comment about using plain flour, yes you can! That’s what we call it in New Zealand, plain flour is perfect for cakes, pancakes, muffins etc 🙂

  37. Hina Patel

    Hi Lindsay, I made these pancakes on the first week of lockdown in New Zealand and they turned out amazing! I wanted to make pancakes again today for my son but realised I hadn’t saved your recipe, so I looked up some random recipes, first one was a fail, second was a fail, then by luck i found your recipe and the pancakes turned out perfect again, so thick and fluffy, yet light, my son said that i should always make this recipe! Thank you for this <3

    1. Lindsay

      I’m not sure what you mean by plain flour? I would assume that plain flour would be the same as all purpose. You do mean self rising?

      1. Mary

        The packaging is labelled Plain Flour, described as unbleached wheat flour. I believe it’s the same as all-purpose flour. No, I don’t mean self- raising flour.

      2. Lindsay

        Hmm, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. It seems like it might be all purpose, so you could give it a try.

  38. Taylor Rice

    Ok, not going to lie, these were really good, but I have never ever put butter in my pancakes and it gave my mix a really greasy texture to my batter. The batter would not spread out on the pan. I guess really thick pancakes were good, but the inside of them I could not get done without burning the pancake itself. I’m not trying to hate or anything, but it was kind of a difference to my normal recipe I use to make pancakes from scratch.

  39. Joyce Chua

    The pancakes are really awesome n fluffy . I have tried a few online recipe and this is a winner ! I do add another splash of milk though cos I thot it looks a bit thick for me . 5 stars! 

  40. Kim

    This is a great recipe. I felt like I had been cursed lately because other pancake recipes I tried had turned out gummy or tough, even a recipe I used from America’s Test Kitchen. But I tried these tonight as part of dinner and they were great! Light and fluffy and yummy! I’m definitely keeping this recipe 🙂

  41. Ehu

    I have finally found the best pancake recipe ever. I added one banana and it came out so delicious. Thank you so much for sharing. Aloha from Hawaii.

  42. Shawntelle

    I may have done something wrong. My batter was runny and lumpy. Should I have worked it a little more? Or let us sit longer before cooking? Great taste though. Thank you. 

    1. Lindsay

      It’s hard for me to say without being there, but generally this will be a little lumpy and that’s totally ok and basically how it should be. If you have no lumps at all, you probably have over mixed it. As for runny – hard to say but if they don’t over spread after you try one or two pancakes, it should be fine.

  43. Amy Peters

    Great recipe, this will definitely will be my go to! Subtracting one star because milk amount is not nearly enough. I would start with two cups and go by your judgement. 
    Yummy ! 

  44. Chris

    We have tried a LOT of different recipes over the years, even recipes from well-known chefs and cookbook authors. I made this recipe this morning and we all agreed that these are easily the best we have tried. I can’t see any reason to seek out any more recipes. Thank you for this!

  45. Mimi

    I have found my new favorite pancake recipe! I have been on the hunt fora couple months and tried several different ones online that were good, but not GREAT! These were perfect!! I did have to add more water to mine as they were a bit thick, however I didn’t have any milk on hand so initially I had to substitute with equal parts water and whole whipping cream so maybe thats why?? Anyway, even after adding maybe an additional 1/3 to 1/2 cup water they were still DELICIOUS!! Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!

  46. Kyree

    I made these this morning for breakfast and they were awesome! My family loved it! 
    Great recipe! 👍🏽

  47. Katherine

    Amazing recipe! Pancakes came out super thicc and fluffy, and were the perfect amount of sweetness.

  48. Atti

    Made these pancakes today. They were delicious! I replaced the vanilla with fresh lemon juice, but otherwise followed the recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  49. Maria E R Prado-Olson

    This is the best pancakes I’ve ever made. Hands down. I will never make store mix again Thank you.

      1. Nikki

        I’ve made this recipe at least a dozen times since I discovered it and it’s great! So versatile too. I have made the recipe exactly to the letter and also frequently make subs and it still turns out well. My most common alteration is the following: 
        Sub 1/4 cup of almond flour for 1/4 cup of the all purpose flour
        Add 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (can also use 1 packet of instant oats in any flavor or plain) plus 1 tbs flax seed meal to the dry ingredients 
        Soak 1tbs chia seeds in 1/4 cup water or apple juice for 10 minutes and stir well into the into the liquid ingredients 

        And usually after pouring the batter in the pan I add a few slices of banana & blueberries to each pancake to make a smiley face for my kids.

         We go on lots of nature hikes on the weekends and this never fails to fill them with energy!

  50. Lauren

    I love all of your recipes that I’ve tried so far, this is no different. Fluffy and delicious pancakes. 

  51. Ella

    These are the best pancakes I have ever tasted! They were so fluffy and tasty! Thank you so much for the recipe 🙂

  52. Laura

    Since I am staying at home through these hard times I will give this a try because I don’t care to run out for the mix. I bet this will be good for my homemade onion rings batter as well. Thank you for the great recipe, thanks for sharing! Wish me luck and wish all of you well through this tough time! God bless…

  53. Danielle

    I have tried so many pancake recipes over the years and this is by far the BEST! I will never look for another pancake recipe again! This is my go to!

  54. LILIAN

    I love this. I will try yours next time. Am from Kenya. God bless you for helping out many of us.

  55. Tracy

    I’m not a huge fan of pancakes, but now and then I get a craving, Made this recipe this morning and will keep it in the 5 star recipe box!! I did find the batter a bit too thick so added a bit more milk. I also added cinnamon and grated apples. They turned out so fluffy! I will keep leftovers in the freezer then pop them in the toaster for quick snacks, I will also being sharing this recipe with our neighbours who have a large maple sugar bush. Pancakes are served every day there with the fresh maple syrup!!

  56. Debra Lucius

    Wow,  Delicious.  I cut the recipe in half as there is only two of us.  I did use 1 egg as there is no way to half an egg.  Fluffy, light.  One pancake was more than enough for me.  

  57. Christine

    Loved this recipe, my family raved! I could watch the pancakes fluffily rise on my griddle, and to whomever asked, I added chopped bananas and chocolate chips right into each pancake as they hit the griddle — perfection!
    Also, i used almond milk due to dietary constraints, and they were as good as any they’ve had before! Thank you!

      1. Lindsey

        I doubled the recipe for my large family and the batter came out too thick, like muffin batter. Had to thin it with milk and another egg, but then the consistency wasn’t right, so I had to add a bit more flour and baking powder. In the end, they were still delicious and everyone loved the flavour, but there was definitely something off with the measurements and consistency when doubled. 

  58. Eleanor

    I didn’t like pancakes until I had these. Easy, great instructions, DELICIOUS. Huge hit with my kids. Thank you!

  59. Rachel Adetona

    DELICIOUS. My husband and 10 mo daughter loved! I substituted sugar with date puree.

    I mashed and heated berries for a natural sweet syrup. mmmmmGreeeat!

    1. Lindsay

      I’ve actually been wanting to test this, but I haven’t yet. I’m sure adding chopped bananas would be fine without much change. But I’d like to try adding mashed banana and will share the results when I do.

  60. Sunflower

    This recipe is fantastic! My family loves them, they taste great. We love them, now the family request I make them from scratch. No more box pancake mixes.

    I have only one question. The recipe says pour into pan. Each time I have made these wonderful pancakes. The batter is not something which can be poured. It’s fluffy, thick I have been able to scoop up and put on pan. Then take a spoon using a curricular motion to gently spread the pancake out. What might I be doing wrong. I measure each item.

    They are great!!!

    1. Lindsay

      I’m not sure that you’re necessarily doing anything wrong. I actually use a squeeze bottle, so I suppose I just assumed it would pour well. They usually spread on their own pretty well for me. You could certainly try adding a touch more milk if you feel like the texture would be improved by it.

  61. Paul

    I made one addition to this recipe, 1 tsp cinnamon. This is the best recipe i have found. My grandchildren cant get enough of the. Thanks!

    1. Ivy

      Only thing I subbed was coconut sugar I don’t know if that makes a difference since that’s all I had on hand. The recipe only needed more liquid, so I upped the vanilla and added a bit of water to the mix. They turned out GREAT ( better than what I’d get at restaurants)! Thank you for the recipe!

  62. Sharon

    Good morning, just made your pancakes for breakfast all of my children and grands love pancakes. I’m sending my son a copy of this recipe. He lives in California,with his wife and daughter. I want him to taste the best recipe for home made pancakes, ever. There buttery, fluffy, and just simply delicious, will keep this always. Thank You for sharing.

  63. Stefanie Cash

    I made these today and they were fluffy and delicious. I have 4 stars because they were hard to make a flat round cake even when I put more milk in. The dough was super doughy and not easy to pour. Easy and good. 

  64. Sue

    I made these pancakes exactly how the recipe was written.  They were delicious!  My husband who is very picky about how his pancakes are made (he usually makes them himself) said they were delicious!  Thanks for a wonderful recipe!  

  65. Tracey

    Made panckakes this morning using your recipe. They came out absolutely delicious and fluffy. Everyone enjoyed them, especially my husband. Thank you for the recipe. 😊

    1. Shaun

      I’ve tried a few recipes and this is the best. I use an egg ring to get them perfectly round and added a bunch of choc chips. Kids and wife loved them.

  66. Ferm

    This recipe was easy and the pancakes are great. I substituted the milk with buttermilk and did not use the butter. I also added a little more milk to make the batter a little more pourable. This recipe is a keeper!

  67. Rose

    This did not work for me at all. My batter was a runny lumpy mess, and they were so thin despite me not overworking the batter as instructed. The one good thing I can say is that they smelled great. But I think I’ll stick with the pancake recipes that have more than just five reviews. 

  68. Lori

    Woke up craving pancakes! This is the best recipe ever and has officially become the standard in my household – loooooooove!

  69. Salina

    Damn this pancake is super delicious…… my kids loved it and me too. It just melts inside your mouth…. thank you so much for this delicious recipe. Loved it.

      1. Patrick

        So I am In the process of making these right now so good luck to me lol. But it would be helpful if the recipie was clear on pure vanilla vs vanilla extract since there can be a huge difference in how much to use.

  70. Laila Kelley

    I tried this recipe Today. It’s My first time making pancakes with the ingredients I have available at home as I usually buy boxed pancake mixes. Turned out perfectly. I used 1 Whole can evaporated milk instead coz we ran out of fresh milk and added a little water to reach the desired consistency of the batter. 

    1. Sunflower

      I used can milk also. Maybe adding water is what I should do next time. As my batter is fluffy, thick. I have to scoop the batter then spread out. They taste great and are fluffy. My family loves them, they’ve become once a week guarantee.

  71. Tisha

    I usually use aunt jemima mix to make my pancakes…but after using your recipe, im not going back. My kids enjoy these pancakes and so do I. They are easy to make and sooo delicious. Thank you for sharing 😊

        I wanted fluffy homemade pancakes but I’ve never made them from scratch. I found this recipe and they were delicious!!! I’ll never make them from a mix again!!

    My 3 year old twin granddaughters requested pancakes for their birthday dinner. We made your recipe. OMG they are simply delicious! This will be our pancake recipe from now on. Thank you!!!!

      These are fantastic!! So light and fluffy and delicious – rave reviews from the whole family! They yield a lot so if it’s for 2 people you can half the recipe, (depending on how hungry you are.) 11/10 would make again!

    Boy do I wish this recipe was posted a few days ago LOL.
    I wanted homemade pancakes for breakfast on Saturday and looked up a recipe. Followed it to a “T” and it was awful! We ended up having cereal (again!). These look amazing and i will definitely try them next time! Hope you and your family are doing well!

        Hi, I made this recipe yesterday and was very happy, so I sent it to my son, he lives in California with his wife and daughter. He loves pancakes to. I made it again this morning, the best pancakes ever. Light and fluffy and better than any store bought. The recipe is easy, simple and just plain good. Really doesn’t even need syrup. Thank you for sharing. Can’t wait to make them for all my grands.

      We ran out of pancake mix so I found this recipe on lin to make them from scratch. My kids said these were the best pancakes ever and I don’t have to buy mix anymore! Sooooooooo tasty!

        I LOVE this recipe the pancakes are delicious but I was wondering instead of milk can I use buttermilk ??

      Just made these. Added some coconut, awesome recipe. Much better than boxed garbage. I used 1% milk, but will try buttermilk next time. These are extremely light, fluffy and thick.
