Light, Fluffy, Delicious Pancakes From Scratch

Thank you for reading this! This is my favorite light, fluffy, delicious pancakes from scratch recipe.

There’s about a bajillion recipes for pancakes out there so this obviously isn’t a new concept. I actually debated whether it was worth it to share a pancake recipe.

Here are a few reasons why I decided to add this recipe to the site:

  • It’s a staple recipe, modified from one on another website. It’s convenient to have the same go-to recipe every time since there’s only so many breakfast food options.
  • This recipe actually does better when it has time to sit, making it the perfect thing to cook while multi-tasking.
  • Since they’re uniquely fluffy and fun to make, it was worth being shared with others.

Better than Bisquick! They’re light, fluffy and delicious

There’s a trick to this recipe and I want to reiterate it now so nobody winds up with a pancake that’s anything less than light and fluffy:

After you combine the wet ingredients with the dry you’re going to lightly mix the batter and then let it sit. It’ll get fluffy and bubbly. After that you’ll scoop it and put it directly onto your hot pan, you will NOT mix it again!
