The Fluffiest American Style Pancakes

The breakfast you will want to eat every weekend

Everyone loves weekends, right? You can enjoy the time off and relax, spend time with family and friends or go for a little weekend trip. There is one more thing that I absolutely love about weekends and that is the weekend breakfast. During the week I rarely have the time in the morning to get creative and make something special, so it usually means porridge or a quick toast. But during the weekend I love taking the time and making something special to start the weekend right :)

Now, pancakes are fairly quick to make and what is really great about them is that you can then serve them with a bunch of different toppings so that everyone can make something that fits their own taste. Also you can have one with a chocolate topping, one with maple syrup, one with yogurt and berries..I think you got what I mean :) Looking for ideas for homemade toppings? My Homemade Lemon Curd is a perfect accomponiment to greek yogurt and fresh berries on pancakes, not forgetting the finger licking good Homemade Caramel which is great on its own to go on pancakes. 

Even if I just said that pancakes are perfect for the weekend, I also think they are a great dessert to end a lunch or a dinner with your family or friends. I guarantee everyone will be super excited to construct their own pancakes with the toppings of their choice, been there done that, and did see some very happy faces :) I think even adults get a little child like, when they get excited about something like this and I think that is priceless :)

My favorite topping for pancakes must be greek yogurt and fresh seasonal fruits, and when there are no fruits then it is maple syrup or caramel :) What is your favorite topping?

Happy Baking Lovelies!

RECIPE

The Fluffiest American Style Pancakes

The Breakfast you will want to eat every Weekend

​INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs separated

  • 150ml kefir or buttermilk

  • 100g flour

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

  • Oil for frying

DIRECTIONS

  1. Whisk the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff.

  2. Then whisk the egg yolks in a separate bowl for a little. Add kefir to the eggs while mixing.

  3. Now you can start adding the flour little by little while mixing continuously. Mix the batter well to get a smooth, lump-free batter. The batter will be quite thick.

  4. Fold in the egg whites with a spatula, carefully, to retain the airiness.

  5. Heat a frying pan on medium heat and oil it well once hot. Spoon the batter with a tablespoon onto the frying pan.

  6. Fry the pancakes over medium heat for 1-2 minutes until they are brown and then turn them over and fry for another minute on the other side.

  7. Enjoy warm with any topping of your choice.
