Fluffy Pancakes


1 1/2 cups of normal flour

2 tablespoons of sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powder

3/4 teaspoons of salt

2 large eggs

1 1/4 cups of milk (I use milk powder)

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

3 tablespoons of melted butter (I use prestige margarine)


Method of Preparation:

  • Sieve and mix the dry ingredients with a whisk in a bowl.
  • Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks and set them aside on two different bowls.
  • Whip the egg whites until fluffy and peaks form- keep aside.
  • Add milk and vanilla essence to the egg yolks and beat together until they bubble up.
  • Mix in the butter  then add in all the dry ingredients and whisk together until they are incorporated. Do not overmix.
  • Fold in the egg whites in 2 additions- add half the egg whites and then fold in the other half.
  • Let the batter rest for 15-2o minutes.
  • Heat the pan and lightly coat the surface with oil.
  • Use a greased scoping cup to scoop and pour the mixture on the pan- do not try to round the pancake by pouring in a circular way, dump the mixture and it will round itself out.
  • When bubbles start forming on the top side of the pancake, gently ease the spatula under the pancake and turn it.- do not pat down or press down the pancake, it will ruin its texture.
  • Keep adjusting the heat.
  • You can pour some honey or fruits on plating.
  • Enjoy…
