Fluffy Old Fashioned Pancakes

Meet the fluffiest pancakes you’ll ever make.

These old fashioned pancakes are fluffy and rich, with a subtle hint of vanilla. I’ll sometimes serve them with a bowl of mixed fruit, or with a generous smear of nutella. And of course the combo of pancakes and maple syrup is one of the best things ever created- so easy to wake up to! I love an easy weekend breakfast that takes 15 minutes start to finish. Go ahead and try these out this weekend; you most likely have every ingredient already on hand.

Start by sifting the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar together into large mixing bowl. If you don’t have a fancy- shmancy sifter, use a fine strainer like I do! This will help to keep the batter nice and smooth.

Make a well in the center of the sifted dry ingredients. Pour the milk, egg, vanilla, and melted butter into the center. Making a well will enable you to mix the wet and dry ingredients in a uniform manner, therefore avoiding the over mixing that would occur if you just poured the wet ingredients all over the dry ones. Whisk until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or large frying pan over medium heat. Too much cooking spray makes flat pancakes. I like to coat the surface with non stick spray, then wipe it down with a paper towel. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the griddle for each pancake. Heat until some bubbles appear in the middle of the batter and the edges are slightly browned, about 2 minutes. Flip and brown the other side for another minute or so.

Transfer to a plate covered with aluminum foil to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve hot with maple syrup.
