Fluffy Pancakes is a formula by featured instructor Leena Yengle. This first version is not sourdough but if you scroll down the page, you will find a sourdough version too.


  • 120 grams (1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons of butter melted and cooled
  • 3 – 4 eggs

1.Separate the egg yolks from egg whites and set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

3. Add milk, vanilla, yolks and butter and mix well.

4. Beat the egg whites until frothy, add the sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form. Slowly fold the beaten egg whites into the flour mixture, being careful not to over-mix and lose the air volume.

5. Rest the batter while heating your greased pancake griddle or skillet. I used a 1 inch tall metal ring to create the pancake shape that is pictured (optional).

6. Cook until golden brown and serve hot with butter and maple syrup or your choice of toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
