here's something else you may want to consider if you are one to keep sourdough starter in your fridge. This makes a really light and fluffy pancake with that great sourdough tangy flavor that contrasts nicely with maple syrup. Takes a little more time and effort, but it's so worth it. 1 cup sourdough starter 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup milk 1 large egg, well beaten 2 teaspoons vegetable oil 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon granulated sugar The Night Before: Mix 1 cup starter with the flour and milk in a large, nonreactive bowl. Place the bowl in a warm place, cover and let it stand until morning. The Next Day: add beaten egg, oil, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar to sour dough mixture; mix well. Use 1/4 Cup of batter for each pancake. cook on preheated griddle or skillet over medium heat.

Another way to make super-fluffy pancakes is to stir a tablespoon of lemon juice into your wet ingredients for any pancake recipe. The acid in the lemon juice reacts with the baking powder, creating more levening. This also works with biscuits, dumplings, etc. You can use lemon juice for sweet applications and vinegar for savory applications. It turns regular Bisquick pancakes into slap-yer-mama pancakes, and everyone will think you are a master chef.

thanks Jdenton, you're absolutely correct about that.

Pancakes are sometimes difficult to cook because they stick to the pan. If you have that problem, try using an IRON skillet instead of stainless steel. Very nice instructable. As an American, I am surprised they are called "american pancakes." I just thought they were pancakes.

It seems what is named "pancake" seems to vary a lot with the country. In Brazil, what we call a pancake is a pasta roll filled usually with ground meat and covered with sauce.

To Americans they're pancakes, but they're also known as flapjacks. In other parts of the world pancakes can be referred to as different things eg. crepes, pikelets, hotcakes or griddle cakes. I'm sure there are probably other names for them too. The 'American' probably helps readers to identify the style of pancakes before clicking into the Instructable and reading the whole thing.

Crepes aren't the same thing as pancakes. They are a very thin, less airy version of them. Similar.

In South Africa - This is a flapjack or a really big crumpet. Pancakes are something completely different. They are made to fill an entire pan and they are paper thin, usually eaten rolled up with cinnamon sugar and lemon juice.

Maybe i should make an instructable on them :)

that's what pancakes in the UK are, I don't know if they're like that other places

i always wanted to try these, because we always make those that are thinner but bigger

mm, it's the same in the UK, we just call ours pancakes but they're quite a lot different to yours.


I tried your recipe and the pancakes turned out great. Children were delighted, so I will make it soon again. Thanks for the excellent and easy recipe. Greetings from Croatia! ( Europe )

take the sweet ready-made sort of thin pancake, then mix up melted dark chocolate and that cream with baileys in, then cover your pancakes with that mixture and roll them. Bet you can't eat anymore than three :P :P
