American Pancakes Recipe

Pancakes. We eat a lot of them in my home. Not on week days but almost always on a Saturday or Sunday morning. I alternate my thin Swedish Pancakes with the classic small and fluffy American Pancakes. This is a simplified recipe of my American Pancakes, made with baking powder instead
of whipped egg whites. The trick is to let the mixture rest for a while before cooking.
It is a quick and easy recipe and loved by all my peeps.
I hope you will enjoy!

American Pancakes
Makes approx: 20-24 small pancakes
1 large egg
1cup milk
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup white flour
1/2 - 1 tsp salt

1. Beat an egg in a large bowl.

2. In separate small bowl, mix baking powder with the milk until dissolved.

3. Add half of the milk mixture to the beaten egg and mix together.

4. Add the flour and salt to your mix and whisk gently until smooth.

5. Mix in the remaining milk until batter is smooth. Let the pancake mix rest for 15 minutes.

6. Heat up a flat pan to medium heat (7 on a 1-10 scale). Add a little vegetable oil, coconut fat or butter and let melt. Using a tablespoon, spoon the mixture into the pan in small sized pancakes, maybe 4-5 at the time in your pan. Cook for 30 seconds to a minute before turning them over gently. Let brown for half a minute on the other side. Serve with what ever you like best.
Here are some of our favorites:

• Pancakes with maple syrup
• Pancakes with banana and maple syrup
• Pancakes with jam
• Pancakes with nutella
• Pancakes sprinkled with powdered sugar
• Pancakes with squeezed lemon, butter and powdered sugar
• Pancakes with fresh berries and powdered sugar
Bon Apetit!




  1. Lekker! We know this as flapjacks, or "plaatkoekies". Love it with syrup & cheese, or syrup & bacon, or try building a whole tower with marmite, butter, syrup/honey & cheese. Or cottage cheese & biltong!


  2. It sounds to be delicious.
    I' ll try. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Hey Annette,
    It looks delicious. I still want to make pancakes some time and I will use this recipe. Thank you.
    Have a nice weekend.

    Sweet greetings,

  4. We would call the size in your photo "silver dollar" since they are about the size of a silver dollar coin. A regular American pancake would be much larger! And I know your husband is American so you can double check! Enjoy!

  5. Yum! A weekend staple for breakfast here as well. Sometimes we add chocolate chips to them once they're on the pan. We also add a splash of vanilla and a table spoon or two of sugar to the batter.
