Quick and easy to prepare, with only a few basic ingredients that everyone has at hand (yes everyone: egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder – that’s it!).

I love everything about these pancakes. First, they are extremely quick and easy to prepare, with only a few basic ingredients that everyone has at hand (yes everyone: egg, milk, flour, sugar, baking powder – that’s it!). Then, they turn out perfect each single time I make them, with a lovely small round shape, and an amazing fluffy and light texture. And finally, they make me hungry as soon as I see them!

I have shared pancakes recipes on the blog before, but I have never shared a basic pancake recipes. And the fact is that sometimes you are just craving for some classic fluffy pancakes for breakfast. Something easy and quick to make. Weekends are to me the time of the week I want to treat myself with a fancy breakfast, which sometimes turns out to be a brunch depending on when I get up (although I love getting up early). But with a long week behind me, I often happen to be lazy, and for these lazy mornings, this easy breakfast recipe is just perfect.

Total time and servings

  • Prepation Time: 5 mins
  • Cooking Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Serves: 10

Ingredients

  • 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
  • 1 large egg

Instructions

  1. First, mix all the dry ingredients.
  2. Then mix the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix (do not overmix).
  4. My secret: let the batter sit for a minute or two. It will allow the baking powder to activate and make your pancakes fluffy.
  5. 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.
  6. Cook for a minute, until fluffy. Flip, and cook for another minute.
