° Fluffy Pancakes

This year I decided to try a new recipe for some FLUFFY pancakes. And actually checked to see if the baking powder was actually still active (drop a little into some water and see if it fizzes), mine was not … only nearly 3 years out of date!!! So yeah off to the shops for some fresh ingredients so there was no excuse for them not working.

Talking of ingredients here’s what you will need to make 6 fluffy pancakes:


  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tbdp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg


  • Grease your frying pan and heat on a medium temperature
  • In a large bowl, add all the dry ingredients which include flour, sugar, and baking powder. Mix together with spoon or whisk 
  • In a separate bowl, add the wet ingredients, the milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla (you will add the egg after the next step) 
  • Separate the egg yolk from the egg white. Put the egg YOLK in the bowl with the wet ingredients and put the egg WHITE in it’s own separate bowl (set aside for now)  
  • Mix the wet ingredients until combined. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix for about 5-10 seconds just until everything is combined (DO NOT OVER MIX!) 
  • Now back to the egg whites. Using a hand mixer, beat the egg white on medium speed for about 3 minutes until it forms a thick and frothy texture 
  • Add the frothy egg white mixture to the pancake batter and fold in gently with a wooden utensil. Stop when all white streaks have disappeared into the batter 
  • Using ¼ cup measurements, scoop and pour batter onto the pan. Spread batter evenly with a spoon in a circular shape 
  • Let cook for about 3 minutes or until batter starts to bubble all over 
  • Flip with a spatula. Again, let cook for about another 3 minutes on the second side 
  • Remove the pancakes from heat and serve with your favorite toppings!
