How to Cook Classic, Fluffy Pancakes

How to Cook Classic, Fluffy Pancakes - CookingWithKimberly.com
Just the other morning, I had realized that I have been making all kinds of amazingly flavored pancakes…

However, I haven’t made the plain, old, classic, fluffy pancakes in a long time…plain & simple.

Sometimes, we want those old comfy classics to soothe our culinary souls.

Here is that recipe…just for you from me!

Photo right: Whoops…by the time I realized I hadn’t yet taken a photo of the pancakes, they were almost gone! LOL 😉

Type: Breakfast Recipe
Serve With: Soft Butter & Warm Maple Syrup
Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cook Time: 5-8 mins
Yield: 8 large pancakes


  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water – or lukewarm tea
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • butter – for frying pan


  1. Preheat large frying pan on medium low heat with 1 tbsp butter.
  2. Sift dry ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  3. Combine wet ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl, starting first with the eggs to ensure no shells have fallen into the bowl.
  4. Pour half of the wet mixture into the dry ingredient bowl and mix until evenly combined.
  5. Pour second half of the wet mixture into the dry ingredient bowl and mix until just evenly combined. Lumps are welcome, in fact. Don’t over-mix the batter. Believe it or not, control freaks out there, the lumps actually add a nicer texture, and more fluffy pancake. Try it!
  6. Using your 1/4 cup measuring cup you used to measure out your water (or lukewarm tea), scoop pancake batter into 3 different positions in your frying pan like the points of a triangle, ensuring that your pancake has room to spread towards the edges.
  7. Allow to get to golden brown on underside, approximately 2-3 minutes, and you will look for bubbles rising to the top of the pancake batter in the pan. That’s how you’ll know when to turn over the pancake.
  8. Continue to get to golden brown on other side, approximately 1-2 minutes.
  9. Remove from pan and serve with soft butter and warm maple syrup.

What could be better for breakfast than a plate of hot pancakes like these?
