Family Secret Pancakes!

Recipe by Mortinus
READY IN: 8mins




  • Sift dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  • Crack and separate 2 eggs, reserve egg white and yolk in separate bowls.
  • Add 2C milk and the vanilla to the reserved egg yolks. Whisk briefly to combine. Add mixture to dry ingredients until batter-like and well-mixed.
  • Add milk for thinning until desired consistency for pancake density is achieved.
  • Whisk egg-whites at high speed until they form soft peaks. Fold this gently into batter, taking care not to over-mix. There will be lumps! This is the secret to the fluffiness of the pancake.
  • Heat a frying pan on medium-low. Spray with non-stick of choice or melt small tab of butter to prevent sticking. Ladel out desired amount, less for smaller cakes. Cook approximately 2+ minutes, or until bubbles form and pop in the centre. Flip, and cook an additional minute, or until golden.
  • Serve with butter and syrup. Or butter and peanut butter and syrup -- or strawberries and whipcream -- or add chocolate chips and go crazy with whatever else!
