Fluffy American Pancakes with warm Maple Syrup

A fluffy inner crust and a crispy outer crust makes the perfect Pancake. 
America's favorite breakfast. 
Once you prepare them from scratch, you'll never look back to those boxed pancakes mixes - as the basic pancakes preparation requires hardly any special ingredient or extra effort. 
I have used the basic traditional recipe for pancakes that can be further modified by adding any types of fillings or fruits or nuts. 


  • 1 cup All purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 tablespoon Brown/White Sugar
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoon melted, unsalted Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Honey or Maple Syrup for drizzling

  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt) into a large bowl and whisk a little.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients (egg, buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla extract) in a separate bowl.
  3. Now mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Mix well and set aside for 1 hour. { I prefer using electric mixer at this point to make sure no lumps are left in the mixture.}
  4. Heat the non-stick griddle until a few drops of water tossed onto the surface ran around frantically. ( If the water jumps off the griddle, then turn down the heat. If the water just sits there, increase the heat.) Now, melt a pad of butter onto the griddle to lubricate it. and rub the butter on it. { There should not be too much fat on the griddle or you'll be frying the pancakes.}
  5. Then pour a medium ladle full of batter steadily onto one spot until it forms a near perfect circle. Let still for 1 minute until bubbles covered the pancake surface and begin to pop. Then flip the pancake and cook for 1 more minute. { Don't press the pancake.}
  6. Stack the pancakes and pour the warm maple syrup/honey and serve hot.
  7. If you need to make a lot of pancakes, you can stack them on a plate in a 200°F oven.
  8. Extra pancakes can also be frozen in an airtight container.

Good chefs always taste their Recipe.....Go Ahead....And say Wow.
