The Ultimate Fluffy Pancake Recipe

This is the ultimate Tucker family recipe for the perfect fluffy vanilla pancakes.


Makes around 15 of my perfect fluffy vanilla pancakes

300g Plain flour

1 level tsp baking powder

Pinch of salt

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs (beaten)

300ml milk




Golden syrup


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (flour, baking powder, pinch of salt & sugar)
  2. Add in the vanilla essence, eggs and milk and keep stirring together
  3. Heat a smooth frying pan and spray with oil
  4. Pour in 2 tbsp of batter at a time
  5. Allow to cook until the edges come away easily and it starts to bubble. Flip over to cook the other side - it probably only needs about a minute or so.
  6. I topped mine with my favourite fruit... fresh raspberries, strawberries and a dribble of golden syrup


Be light with your hand when mixing - like you're adding air to the batter. I hope you enjoy these fluffy vanilla pancakes!
