Fluffy Pancake Recipe

June 14, 2013
Whip up a batch of these fluffy buttermilk pancakes this weekend – don’t forget to serve with butter and maple syrup (and a side of crispy bacon!).

Makes about 12 pancakes

Ingredients

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups but­ter­milk

1/4 cup but­ter, melted (plus more for cook­ing and serving)

2 cups plain flour, sifted

1 Table­spoon caster sugar

2 tea­spoons bak­ing pow­der

1 tea­spoon bak­ing soda

1 tea­spoon salt

Method

1. Whisk the eggs, then add the but­ter­milk and melted but­ter and keep whisking until just com­bined. Add the flour, sugar, bak­ing pow­der, bak­ing soda, and salt and whisk gen­tly until the flour is incorporated, being careful not to overmix.

2. Heat a large fry­ing pan over medium heat (if it starts smoking, take it off the heat and allow to cool down to medium). Add a small knob of but­ter to the pan. When melted, pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan. If there is enough room in the pan, pour another 1/4 cup to make another pancake, leaving 5cm between each pancake.

3. Cook until the surface of the batter is dotted with bubbles, about 2 minuets, then flip with a spatula. Cook on the other side until the batter is no longer runny, about 1 minute. Remove and keep warm.

4. Con­tinue cooking the remain­ing pan­cakes in the same way.

5. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
