Fluffy Pancake Recipe

We are finishing Easter brunch week with a stack of the best pillowy pancakes ever!

That was the vote from my family, so now I want you to put these babies through your own taste testing methods.

These pancakes are silver dollar size, which in my opinion is the best size for kids and for brunch because a brunch menu has lots of options to choose from, and I want a bite or two…or three of everything!

  • Baking powder

How To Make Fluffy Pancakes

First you want to whisk the dry ingredients together and set this aside.

Next, place the wet ingredients in a blender; egg milk vanilla, oil and yogurt. Pulse until combined or mix by hand.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. If using a blender pulse until mixed – only one or two pulses. A few lumps are ok.

If mixing in a bowl, DON’T overmix the ingredients in a rough swirling fashion. Gently fold the ingredients together.

Lightly grease skillet and heat over medium heat. Add batter to skillet in 1/4 cup increments.

Once bubbles form, gently flip pancakes over and cook the remaining uncooked side.

Why Aren’t My Pancakes Fluffy?

There are a couple of reasons your pancakes might not be fully.

  • The batter was overmixed – when combining the wet and dry ingredients. Mix until the ingredients are just combined.
  • Leavening ingredients; baking powder and or soda has expired.
  • The pancake was flipped too early or more than once roughing it up!
  • Skillet was not at the correct temperature. Too cool or too hot of a pan can change the finished pancake.

Using the Nordic Ware Silver Dollar Pan

To cook these pancakes in a silver dollar pan add add two tablespoons of batter to each cavity. The batter is thick, so spread it with the back of the spoon filling each cavity in the pan.

Cook until bubbles form and the pancake is firm enough to flip over.

Flip the pancake and cook the second side until lightly browned.

Cook the next batch!

Pancake Toppings

Get creative with the pancake toppings!

What do you like to top your pancakes with? Alan grabs the peanut butter with syrup….every time.

PB and maple is a delicious combination, but my favorite is this sugar free strawberry topping or this pecan maple syrup!

Oh, and this coconut syrup is another tasty topping for pancakes.

You guys, I was thinking that this silver dollar pancake pan would have been perfect for when my kids were little.

Little tummies and little pancakes are just too cute. Then I thought, this is a good size for ME!

Actually, it’s a great kitchen tool for anyone because those little cavities can be filled with other ingredients too.

I cooked a gooey delicious egg on the side for Alan. Then I scrambled some eggs and made pancake sandwiches!

The pancake sandwich (with bacon) was my son’s favorite way to eat these pancakes. Grab ‘n go meals are always a hit!

Plus, they’re super filling! Not only is there a dose of protein in the pancakes from the Stonyfield Organic yogurt, but the egg and bacon add an extra boost of protein too.
