On this week’s episode of my fool proof recipes, I will be sharing my top secrets to making not just pancakes, but PERFECT pancakes EVERYTIME! And I have decided to share one out of my two methods of making pancakes from scratch without using any pancake mix. So you will want to subscribe so that you don’t miss out, on the second method once shared. I promise you I won’t spam your inbox with mails 😉.


According to Wikipedia pancakes are flat cakes, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying non-stick pan, often frying with oil or butter. It is also believed that pancakes originated from ancient Greek.

Tips for Perfect Pancakes
Tips for Perfect Pancakes


Pancakes can be served at any time of the day. One thing I love about pancakes is that you can spice things up by adding spices, citrus zest, vanilla extract/vanilla powder, or herbs to the batter for an extra layer of flavour. For Sweet and Savory flavor, fry chopped onion, cheese and bacon and cook until golden and add to your pancakes (You’re welcome 😀). OR, another great pancake serving option is to grate over cheddar cheese, fold up and eat hot. OR for a healthier version serve with fresh tropical fruits, stem ginger syrup and Greek yogurt. YUM!


ULTIMATE GUIDE TO MAKING PERFECT PANCAKES ALWAYS (Tips to making my fluffy Pancakes)

  • Rule one, use fresh items always. From eggs to baking powder, make sure it’s fresh.
  • Rule number two, prep your toppings, fresh fruits, etc. You don’t want to start running from your pan to your work surface and get your pancakes burned because you’re prepping.
  • I use whole milk with a good fat percentage. However, when I’m making pancakes for elderly clients, those on weight-loss journey, or those who just want to keep fit, I use skimmed milk or low fat milk.
  • Eggs. This is an well cherished secret for my perfect pancakes. I whisk my eggs alongside my sugar till frothy, light, and doubled in quantity just like when making some cake recipes. This process yields a super fluffy pancake.

  • Don’t over mix. Never be tempted to over mix your pancake batter. Once you get that not too runny lump-less consistency, stop mixing. Step away from your mixing bowl.
  • Allow your pancake batter rest before cooking at least for 15 minutes. I usually leave mine for 30 minutes.
  • A good non-stick frying pan or griddle is a game changer trust me. It yields the best result.
  • Watch your heat level! You want to cook this on low flames for 3-5 minutes on both sides. After the first two batches, you will have to reduce the flames of your stove ‘cos at this time the heat will be too much for your pancakes.
  • Only flip your pancakes after the raw side has a few decent-sized bubbles and the edges are just beginning to dry.
  • I also cover my pancakes with a vented lid. This allow the steam from the lid cook the pancakes thoroughly
  • Pay attention. As simple as making pancakes can be, you can also have issues. When making pancakes this isn’t the time to start prepping toppings or fruits. Just watch your pancakes. Your eyes on it!
  • Wipe out your pan in-between each batch. You can use butter, or oil, or margarine for this. This removes any bits of pancake left-over in the pan and gives each batch a fresh start.
  • Measure each batter you’re adding to your pan to have a have an even stack of pancakes. I usually use a ¼ cup to measure or an ice-cream scoop. You can also use a table spoon for smaller pancakes.
  • Remove pancakes to a wire rack, spaced out individually or lined up in an overlapping row if you have a lot of pancakes. Then place them in a low oven (about 150°F) covered with a clean towel while you wait to serve them or while making the rest batch. Spacing them out on a rack, rather than piled on top of each other in a classic stack, provides just enough air circulation to prevent them from sticking together and becoming gummy.
  • Pancakes freeze very well. Always allow the pancakes to cool completely, then place a square of parchment paper between each of the individual cakes when they go into the freezer. This keeps the pancakes from solidifying into a single frozen blob.
