Fancy Pancakes

I’ve posted another pancake recipe in the past but it doesn’t quite have the fluffy texture of Julia’s recipe. I believe this recipe is more enjoyable if you are willing to take a few extra moments to beat the egg whites.

Servings: 2.5
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: trivial


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (250 ml)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon of baking powder (8 ml)
Wet Ingredients

  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup of milk (190 ml)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter, melted (60 ml)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (15 ml)


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl then make a well shape.
  2. In a separate bow add the egg yolks, most of the milk, and the melted butter.
  3. Add the wet ingredients in dry ingredient well and mix until homogeneous – no more.
  4. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy then add the sugar and beat a little more until glossy and stiff.
  5. Fold the egg whites into the main batter bowl with a spatula.
  6. Cook on a lightly buttered pan.

Enjoy the fluffiness!
