American-style Pancakes

Just love American-style pancakes, they are so light and fluffy! Good memories to my trips to the USA when eating pancakes they are just the best. Throw in a bit of fruit and maple syrup, and you got yourself a very tasty breakfast or brunch šŸ˜€


  • 150 gr. flour (sifted)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. backing powder
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 225 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. butter (melted)


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.

  2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown.

  4. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a oven on 70-80 degrees, till all are baked.

  5. Serve with fruits, maple syrup and some extra butter if you like
