American Style Pancakes Recipe

Posted on October 1st, 2011 in Recipes by Stephanie

One of my all time breakfast faves is a huge stack of fluffy American pancakes drizzled with heaps of warm maple syrup. A good American pancake is hard to find in London so I usually make them myself at home as they are so easy to make and it takes less than 10 minutes!

Here is a great American style pancakes recipe so you can whip them up yourself for breakfast or as a treat for dessert. I found this yummy recipe on the website which is full of recipes for cakes, cookies, breads, pancakes and more and is fantastic for getting recipe ideas!

American Style Pancakes With Maple Syrup And Dragonfruit


  • Plain white flour (225g)
  • Baking powder (4tsp)
  • Golden caster sugar (2tsp)
  • Salt (1tsp)
  • 2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
  • Milk (300ml)
  • Butter (50g)


  • Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl and stir in the sugar and salt. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and milk. Whisk to a smooth battter and ideally leave for 30 minutes.
  • Lightly grease a pan with butter and spoon the mixture onto the hot pan. Cook on each side for a couple of minutes.
  • Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining batter. Use the remaining butter inbetween to re-grease the pan.
  • Enjoy drizzled with syrup or stack and serve with fresh fruits.

TIP: Sometimes I add thinly sliced bananas to the pancake mixture for banana pancakes or blueberries for blueberry pancakes. Or you could try using grated orange peel and orange cooking essence for orange pancakes.

Really like the recipe. I have tried it once and it was great, but now I want to make it a little more interesting: banana slices and some chocolate chips to the mix.

When do you think it’s best to add the chocolate chips for them to remain intact and not dissolve?

Hi Christina, thank-you for your message. I would cook one side of the pancake first and before the other side (top side) sets, drop the chocolate chips in and then flip the pancake over to cook it.

First of all, thanks Stephanie for such awesome recipes.

What I have a big problem with is turning the pancakes around – I always manage to get the top part of the pancake all over the place. How to you turn them to get such a good shape?

for Christina Stumer: if you have a harder doe you can also add them just before placing them in the frying pan. For me it worked.

Hi, thanks for your message! When the bottom of the pancake is firm I use a spatula to flip the pancake. I usually use a mould to shape my pancakes into hearts etc which helps keep the shape too.

I’ve tried all kinds of pancakes but I have to say I love the slim European ones the most. It of course depend on the filling but you can let your imagination run here.
