Recipe: Fluffiest Pancakes Ever


Some people might call these 'winner's pancakes'. They're topped with bacon lattice and maple syrup because everyone knows that they're a winning combination!


  • 2 cup plain flour
  • 4 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsp butter, melted
  • 8 rashers streaky bacon
  • 1 drizzle maple syrup

Step 1

Sift The Flour

Sift that flour, because we want these to be super fluffy, not lumpy.

Step 2

Mix The Dry Ingredients

Mix 3 tbsp of the sugar, the baking powder, baking soda and salt into the flour.

Step 3

Mix The Wet Ingredients

Whisk the egg whites until just fluffy and add the buttermilk. In another bowl, stir the yolks and add the remaining 1 tbsp of sugar and the melted butter. Gently whisk the yolk mixture into the White mixture until well combined.

Step 4

Add Wet To Dry!

Whisk the flour into the wet mix, until fully combined, lump-free and fluffy. Rest in the fridge for 10 minutes!

Step 5

Preheat The Oven

Preheat your oven to 200C.

Step 6

Cook Your Bacon

Make a lattice out of your bacon, or just lay out on a lined baking tray. Cook for about 12 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and starting to blacken.

Step 7

Start Cooking

Spray a non-stick frying pan with a bit of oil. Spoon out a bit of batter into the pan and let it spread to about 10-15cm wide. LEAVE IT and go to the next step :-)

Step 8

Finish Cooking

When bubble start form on the pancakes, flip them and cook until well browned. Repeat until you have a huge stack!

Step 9

Serve Up!

Top your stack with bacon and drizzle with maple syrup. If you're feeling generous then share. Or not. Serves 2-3 (or 1 Jamie)
