EASY Fluffy Pancakes

easy fluffy pancakes
These pancakes are super thick and fluffy but above all are so easy to make. They are freezer friendly too! Serve immediately or freeze ready for breakfast another day or as a lunch box snack.
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 40g or 2 tbsp unsalted butter (I melt in 20 second intervals in the microwave)
  • 1 tsp olive oil or olive oil spray

This recipe does not include sugar as I find the pancakes sweet enough with the addition of maple syrup drizzled on top. If you would like to make a sweeter pancake, you can add 1/4 cup of caster sugar to your dry mix.

  1. Add self raising flour and baking powder to a large bowl (add sugar at this point if using).
  2. In a seperate bowl, whisk the milk and egg. Add the butter and vanilla extract. The butter may go a little lumpy in the mixture as it cools and that’s okay.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the flour and whisk until combined.
  4. Preheat a non-stick pan on medium-low heat. The low heat stops the pancakes browning too much on the outside. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan if it needs it.
  5. Use an ice-cream scoop to dollop the mixture into the pan. Your pancakes will need to cook 1-2 minutes per side. Half way through cooking I like to pop a lid on top to help the insides cook through.
  6. Serve immediately with your favourite toppings. This recipe will make 8 pancakes.
