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)



A variation on Jamie’s “Fluffiest Pancakes Ever” recipe. Works great with sweet or savoury toppings such as berry compote, maple syrup, bacon or even bechamel with cheese and mushrooms. Yields about 11-12 mid sized pancakes


You take some bacon and you put it in a pancake


A very easy, super delicious step up from your standard pancake. I never want to eat a plain one again after this!
