classic and easy fluffy pancake recipe

Jump to Recipe

A fantastic classic and easy fluffy pancake recipe for the perfect Sunday breakfast or brunch.

A few recipes should be on everyone’s list; one of those recipes is this classic and easy pancake recipe. They are all-rounders! You can have them on a normal work day because you are simply in the mood for pancakes, on weekends to make your weekends special, or on family brunches; there is no rule on when to make pancakes, and this is good.

ingredients for the basic pancakes

  • Flour.

    All-purpose flour is what I always use for pancakes.
  • Buttermilk.

    Is the perfect choice instead of regular milk.
  • Eggs.

    Organic medium size eggs.
  • Vanilla extract.

    High quality organic vanilla extract. My favorite vanilla extract for recipes like this one is Dominican vanilla extract.
  • Salt.

    A pinch of salt will be enough.
  • Sugar.

    Just some tablespoons for a slightly sweet touch.
  • Butter.

    This is optional, if you aren’t using a nonstick pan you will need some kind of oil/fat so the pancakes don’t stick to the pan.

how to store the pancakes

  • The fluffy pancakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature overnight, in the fridge for five days, or in the freezer for a couple of months.
  • You can meal-prep the pancakes and deep freeze them as soon as they cool off.

how to reheat leftover pancakes

  • If the pancakes are in the fridge, preheat them in the microwave or a pan on the stove. But be careful as you want them to get warm and not cooked again.
  • If the pancakes are frozen, they will turn out perfect if you reheat them in the toaster.

  • Berries- strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and blackberry.

  • Ripe Mango

  • Banana and peanut butter.

  • Apple, pear, and cinnamon.

  • Kiwi and red grapes.
