Here in France, we don’t really have that “pancakes for breakfast” thing going on. Yeah, I know, what a shame. But we do have bread/brioche and butter and that’s wonderful too.
Anyway, to me making pancakes always feels quite special and I wanted to share this recipe with you because I find them incredibly fluffy and delicious. And who doesn’t think fluffy pancakes are quite the dream??
- 200g flour
- 2 pinches of baking soda
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tpsb powder sugar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 25cl buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 50g melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, sugar and salt together.
- In another mixing bowl, stir together the buttermilk, the eggs, the melted better and the vanilla extract.
- Pour this second bowl into the first one and combine roughly. The dough doesn't need to be very smooth or else it will become too liquid.
- In a hot buttered frying pan, pour a ladle of dough and wait until small bubble appear at the surface before turning it over. Don't wait too long because if it's already all cooked, they won't be as fluffy.
