Easy Fluffy American Pancakes
How to make fluffy pancakes step by step?
We all love fluffy pancakes, but sometimes our pancakes turn out flat and thin. This is how I make my pancakes in just a few easy steps:
First, mix all the dry ingredients.
Then mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix (do not overmix).
My secret: let the batter sit for a minute or two. It will allow the baking powder to activate and make your pancakes fluffy.
Heat oil or butter in a skillet and once hot, add a few tablespoons of the batter, making sure they don’t spread out to the outside.
Cook for a minute, until fluffy. Flip, and cook for another minute.

  • 1 cup (120g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (240 ml) milk
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • Assorting toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, etc.


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F (90°C), with a heatproof platter ready to keep cooked pancakes warm in the oven.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or vegetable oil), and egg.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients to the milk mixture, and stir (do not overmix).
  5. Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, and coat generously with vegetable oil.
  6. For each pancake, spoon 2 or 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet. Cook until the surface of pancakes have some bubbles, about 1 minute. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until brown on the underside, 1 to 2 minutes more.
  7. Transfer to the heatproof platter, cover with foil and keep warm in the oven until serving. Serve warm, with desired topping such as maple syrup, fresh berries or banana slices.
