About Recipe

American pancakes, crêpe-style pancakes, Dutch pancakes – I love them all! This ultimate pancake recipe is my take on the American stack version that is sure to be a hit with any pancake fan.

Nothing says weekend breakfast like a stack of super fluffy pancakes does it? Treat yourself to a little lie in, throw on some classics (I love this playlist on Spotify. It’s called ‘Feel Good Dinner’ but it works just as well at any time of day if you ask me!), make a cup of your favourite coffee and tuck into your ultimate pancake stack drizzled with maple syrup and covered with fresh berries.

‘Ultimate Pancake Recipe’… I know what you’re thinking, big statement right? Well, give these a go and I promise you won’t be disappointed! As always, I’d love to hear what you think if you do. Just drop me a message in the comments section below.

    Pancake batter:

  • 3 dl/1.2 cups of flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 2 tsp vanilla essence

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1 pinch of cinnamon

  • 2.5 dl/1 cup of milk

  • 0.5 dl/0.2 cups of yoghurt – this can be replaced with milk

  • 3 eggs
  • Toppings:

  • 5 sliced strawberries

  • a handful of blueberries

  • 1 sliced banana

  • maple syrup

  • icing sugar
  • For the pan:

  • salted butter


Start by pouring the milk and yogurt into a large bowl.

Sift your flour into the milk mixture and add salt, cinnamon, vanilla essence and baking powder.

Whisk the batter until it’s lump-free and then add the eggs.

Once you have a smooth batter you can let the mixture rest whilst chopping up your toppings.

Heat up a small pan and add butter for frying.

When your pan has reached medium heat, you can add a scoop of pancake batter.

The pancake should be flipped over when you start seeing little bubbles on the top.

Once all pancakes are cooked you can top them with berries, dust them with icing sugar and drown them in delicious maple syrup.

Liscus tip – turn this dish into a dessert by adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
