Fluffy, Mouth-Watering Homemade Pancake Recipe: Get Ready to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth!

Whether you’re making breakfast for the entire family or for just yourself, these pancakes are the perfect way to start your day off on the right foot. Not only are they deliciously sweet, but they’re also nutritious and made with simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking!

Homemade Pancake Recipe


Pancakes are a classic breakfast dish that is enjoyed by people of all ages. Making homemade pancakes is easy and requires just a handful of staple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. For this recipe, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/4 cups of milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter


To begin, whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl – flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and melted butter until they are well combined. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until they are fully incorporated. Be careful not to overmix the batter as this can result in tough and dense pancakes.

If you notice a few lumps in the batter, don’t worry – they will disappear as the batter rests. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes to hydrate the flour and develop a better texture.


While the batter is resting, heat a non-stick frying pan or griddle over medium heat. To check if the pan is ready, sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface. If the water sizzles and evaporates immediately, the pan is hot enough.

Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the batter onto the griddle and gently spread it into a circular shape. Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown. To know when it’s time to flip the pancake, look for bubbles forming on the surface. When the edges start to dry up and the bubbles pop, it’s time to flip the pancake.

Transfer cooked pancakes to a warm oven, preheated to 200°F to keep them warm while you finish cooking the rest. Serve with your favorite toppings like butter, syrup, or fresh fruit.

Now that you know how to make homemade pancakes, experiment with different flavors and ingredients like chocolate chips, blueberries, or even matcha powder. Happy cooking!

5 Delicious Toppings to Take Your Homemade Pancakes to Another Level

Are you tired of plain-old pancakes? Looking to add some pizzazz to your breakfast routine? You’re in luck! Here are five toppings that are easy to make and will transform your homemade pancakes into a decadent breakfast treat.

Fruit Compote

Are you a fan of sweet and tangy fruit flavors? Why not try making a homemade fruit compote? This topping is ideal for pancakes and makes the perfect accompaniment to your breakfast spread. Compote is easy and fun to make, and you can even adjust the recipe to fit your fruit preferences. Some great options include blueberry, strawberry, or raspberry compote.

To make the compote, you’ll need roughly two cups of your chosen fruit, one tablespoon of honey, and two teaspoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Next, place the fruit in a saucepan with the honey and lemon juice, and bring the mixture to a low boil. Turn down the heat and let it simmer for ten minutes until the fruit is soft and gooey. Let it cool for a few minutes before pouring it over your fluffy pancakes.

Whipped Cream

If you’re a lover of creamy toppings, then homemade whipped cream is the perfect choice for you. It’s simple to make and elevates your pancake toppings to the next level. You’ll need a half-cup of heavy cream and two tablespoons of powdered sugar to make the whip cream. Add these ingredients to a bowl and whisk vigorously for three to five minutes, or until the mixture is creamy and light.

To add some extra flavor, you can add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or a little bit of cinnamon to the mix. Serve the whipped cream on top of your pancakes with a sprinkle of powdered sugar for a heavenly treat.

Nutella and Banana

Who doesn’t love chocolate and banana together? Combine these two exciting flavors with Nutella and you’ve got a winning pancake combination that’s sure to please. To make the Nutella and banana topping, all you need is a jar of Nutella and a few sliced bananas. Spread a layer of Nutella on your pancake stack and place slices of banana on top. Simple, yet utterly delicious!

Honey Butter

Are you a fan of butter on your pancakes? Take it up a notch and make honey butter instead. You’ll need a stick of butter, one tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of salt. First, let the butter soften to room temperature before adding the honey and salt to the bowl. Use an electric mixer and mix until all the ingredients are incorporated and fluffy. Pop this onto your pancakes just straight out from cooking and enjoy the delicious buttery goodness.

Cinnamon and Sugar

If you want a simpler topping that’s still delicious, then go for cinnamon and sugar. This combination is a classic and never gets old. Simply combine two tablespoons of sugar with one teaspoon of ground cinnamon in a bowl and mix until evenly incorporated. Next, sprinkle the mixture over your piping hot pancakes with a drizzle of syrup. And voila! You have the perfect breakfast treat.

Any one of these toppings is guaranteed to elevate your homemade pancakes to a new level of deliciousness! So next time you’re making pancakes why not shake things up and try something new? You might just discover your new favorite pancake topping. Happy breakfast!

How to Make Homemade Syrup

Some say that pancakes are only as good as the syrup that you put on them. And while buying syrup from the store may be easy, making your own can be so much more rewarding. Plus, you can have full control over the ingredients and customize it to your liking. In this section, we’ll guide you on how to make homemade syrup that will complement your pancakes perfectly.

Basic Syrup Recipe

If you’re new to making syrup, this basic recipe only requires three simple ingredients – sugar, water, and vanilla extract.


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a medium-sized pot, combine the sugar and water. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat and stir it until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Let the mixture simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Let the syrup cool down a bit before pouring it into a serving container.

This basic recipe can easily be customized such as using brown sugar instead of granulated for a richer flavor, or adding lemon juice for a tangy twist. But if you’re feeling more adventurous, try creating flavored syrups at home.

Flavored Syrups

Flavored syrups take your pancakes to the next level and can easily be made with a handful of ingredients.

Blueberry Syrup:

  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. In a medium-sized pot, combine the blueberries, sugar, and water.
  2. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat and bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and strain the mixture to remove solid bits of blueberries.
  5. Pour the syrup into a serving container and let it cool down before serving.

Maple Syrup:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon maple extract


  1. In a medium-sized pot, combine the sugar and water. Heat the mixture over medium-high heat and stir it until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Let the mixture simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the maple extract. Let the syrup cool down a bit before pouring it into a serving container.

These flavored syrups can last for a couple of weeks in the fridge and can be reheated before serving. Now that you have your homemade syrups, let’s discuss the best way to store them.

Storing Syrup

Storing homemade syrup is easy, but it is important to keep it in the right container to prevent any spoilage.

Firstly, syrup needs to be stored in an airtight container to prevent bacteria from developing. A glass jar with a tight-fitting lid is ideal. Avoid storing in metal or plastic containers as they can affect the taste of the syrup.

Secondly, store the syrup in the fridge to prevent it from going bad. It can last up to a month in the fridge, but be sure to check for any signs of mold or spoilage before using.

Lastly, if you have excess syrup, it can be frozen for up to 6 months. Pour the syrup into a freezer-safe container and leave about an inch of space at the top to allow for expansion. Thaw the syrup in the fridge overnight before reheating it.

Homemade syrup may take some time to make, but the end product is definitely worth it. Create different variations of flavored syrups, experiment with new ingredients, and impress your family and friends with your homemade pancake recipe.
