A batch of fluffy pancakes like what I had tasted on my trip to New York. Pancakes that can then be coated with maple syrup, whipped cream, honey, jam and so on ...

The ingredients for American pancakes

As for the ingredients for these pancakes, nothing extravagant, you should have everything in your cupboards!

Eggs : we want them here at room temperature. This is ideal for this recipe.

Granulated sugar : or brown sugar. This recipe is intentionally not very sweet because it allows you to add spread, jam etc ... on your pancakes.

Milk : always at room temperature. It can be replaced by vegetable milk if necessary.

flour : wheat or spelled. She brings hold to the pancakes.

Yeast : it allows the dough to partially swell during cooking.

Salt : it is a flavor enhancer.

The tip for fluffy American pancakes

You have certainly already tasted pancakes that are a little flat like pancakes and you did not really like it? This is not the case with this recipe! The trick to know is to separate the egg whites from the yolks and Beat the egg whites before incorporating them into the dough ...

It is this trick that creates this airy and soft side of american pancakes !

For cooking, you can use a large pan (by pouring the dough in the shape of a circle using a small ladle) or you can use a specific pancake pan.

    First of all, they are guns, because they are very thick. And then they are divine because they are very soft. They are prepared in a short time (by the way, I even skipped the rest time) and keep well for the next morning.
    Recipe tip top therefore. Thank you :)

        By whipping the eggs, you are trying to make the batter fluffy and light. If you let the batter set overnight, it may flatten. Try to use the same techniques and skills you use for making a souffle.

    Excellent, I love it, they are very thick, light, and without fat. Thanks Lily
    Today's late breakfast test, the salty topping version: 1 thin slice of cheddar, a touch of vegetable piperade (eggplant, zucchini, peppers) and a touch of lamb's lettuce. Accompanied by a homemade cappuccino, it's wonderful.
