My Fluffy Pancake recipe is perfect — because it's single-serving! Just whip up a pancake stack that's just for you, whenever you want it.

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 2 pancakes
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1 cup (5oz/142g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup (8floz/240ml) buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract , optional
  • 2 tablespoons (1oz/28g) butter , melted
  1. In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.

  2. In a jug mix together the buttermilk, egg, vanilla extract (if using), and melted butter.

  3. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and mix briefly with a fork until just combined. Take care not to overmix so you end up with fluffy, soft pancakes.

  4. Heat a pan over medium/low heat for a few minutes

  5. Scoop ½ the batter into the pan and allow to cook for roughly 3-4 minutes.

  6. Once bubbles have formed on the top and it has browned underneath, flip it over to cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Repeat with the rest of the batter to give you 2 pancakes.

  7. Enjoy hot straight from the pan with maple syrup, butter, and whatever else you like on your pancakes.
