American Pancakes

If there is something that I miss from when I was living in the US, besides my American friends (of course!), are these pancakes that they usually have for breakfast. Then this recipes was posted on UOL and I had to make it the next day, but I swear I didn’t eat the whole pile 🙂

American Pancakes


  • 1 cup (140g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon (10g) baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon (15g) melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon (15g) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (240ml) whole milk
  • 1 pinch of salt


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and the liquids in a jug. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients, stirring slowly until everything is combined. Let it seat for 5 minutes. If the batter is too liquid, add another tablespoon of flour.
  2. Heat a little bit of oil in a non-stick frying pan. Pour the batter with a ladder or big spoon, so it forms circles. When you see bubbles on the upper side, it’s time to turn the pancakes. Brown it on the other side as well. Repeat this procedure until you use all the batter.
  3. The pancakes should be thick and golden brown. Serve with maple syrup, butter, jams or fruits.

Yield: 8 pancakes
