Soft and Fluffy Basic Pancakes (made from scratch)

Every Week, the Sunday breakfast has always been Pancakes at home. Though I make them very often have posted only one pancake (Blueberry pancake) recipe so far. So thought will post a basic pancake recipe today. This pancake is soft and fluffy and makes a hearty breakfast. It is very easy to make and you will never use box mix for making pancakes again.
Soft and Fluffy Basic Pancakes
What are the ingredients needed?
All purpose flour, 1 1/2 cups
Baking powder, 2  teaspoons
Sugar, 1 Tablespoon
Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
Egg, 1 no. 
Milk,  1 1/4 cups
Butter(melted), 3 Tablespoon
Vanilla Extract, 1 teaspoon

Soft and fluffy pancakes made from scratch
How it is made?
  1. In a large bowl,Sift together flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
  2. Beat the egg, not too much, just till the yolk is mixed well and mix the milk, butter and vanilla extract and give a quick stir.
  3. Then pour this mixture to the flour mixture and mix till it forms a homogeneous mixture.
  4. Heat the griddle in medium high heat and grease it with butter. Then pour a ladle full of the pancake batter.
  5. Wait for 2-3 minutes when bubbles starts appearing on the surface then turn the pancakes and cook for another 1-2 minutes. 
  6. Remove from the griddle and stack them in a warm plate, drizzle some maple syrup and ready to serve.

  • Ensure that milk and egg are in room temperature.
  • Make sure not to over mix the batter, then pancake will become flat not fluffy.
  • Every now and then grease the griddle with butter to ensure that pancakes don't stick to the griddle.
  • Sometimes when the griddle gets too hot, sides will be burnt but still the pancake will be un-cooked, that time just reduce the heat. So that there will be even browning and proper cooking.
