Fluffy Pancakes

You’ll be challenged to find a better recipe than this one for pancakes. Soft and fluffy, they are perfect to whip up for brunch on the weekend. Serve them stacked high with pure maple syrup.

So you’re probably wondering what’s so special about these. What makes them so perfect is the amount of baking powder, about 3x as much as most other recipes. The extra baking powder makes these pancakes more than double in height creating the most soft and fluffy texture. Bonus, they’re really easy to make and you more than likely have all the ingredients sitting in your kitchen.

This weekend pour yourself a cup of coffee and whip up a batch for your family, you wont regret it. For a full video tutorial on how to make these pancakes watch the video below or click here.
