But if all else fails here is the American pancake recipe guaranteed to make fluffy pancakes every time.:
Prepare and preheat your griddle or frying pan:
Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 cups all- purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons salt
Wisk together in another bowl:
1 cups milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together, mixing just until combined. Spoon 1/2 cup onto the griddle for each pancake. Cook until the top of each pancake is speckled with bubbles and some bubbles have popped open, then turn and cook until the underside is lightly browned.
