Pancakes are a breakfast staple that just about everyone loves. Whether you like them loaded with chocolate chips, studded with fresh berries, or served simply with a drizzle of maple syrup, there’s nothing quite like a stack of hot, fluffy pancakes to start your day.

But not all pancakes are created equal. Some end up dense and heavy, while others are so thin they’re practically crepes. If you really want to impress your family and friends, you need to master the art of the ultra-fluffy pancake.

Luckily, I’m about to share my go-to recipe for the fluffiest, most delicious homemade pancakes you’ll ever taste. These pancakes are light and airy, with a tender crumb and just the right amount of sweetness. They’re practically pillowy – the kind that practically melt in your mouth.

What’s the secret to getting them so ridiculously fluffy, you ask? It all comes down to a few key techniques. But trust me, once you see how easy it is, you’ll be making these perfect pancakes on the regular.

1. The Fluffiest Homemade Pancakes Recipe


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled


In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar.

In a separate bowl, beat the buttermilk and eggs together until well combined. Then whisk in the melted butter.

Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture and use a spatula to gently fold the ingredients together, just until combined. Be careful not to overmix – a few small lumps are okay.

Heat a large non-stick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Add a small knob of butter and swirl to coat the surface.

For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot surface. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the edges are set and small bubbles appear on the surface.

Flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, until golden brown on both sides.

Plate a few pancakes on a plate, top with your favorite toppings and syrups.

These pancakes are sure to become a new family favorite. Serve them for a special weekend brunch, a relaxing weekday breakfast, or even as a fun breakfast-for-dinner option. They also reheat beautifully, so you can easily make a big batch and enjoy the leftovers throughout the week.

So what are you waiting for? Gather your ingredients and get ready to flip the fluffiest pancakes you’ve ever tasted. This recipe is a true breakfast game-changer!
