🥛 Soft & fluffy
Because of the milk, cooking soda and baking powder, the pancakes turns out really soft and fluffy. It stays soft even after it cools down.
💭 Top tip
- Use cast Iron pan for best results. This gives golden evenly browned pancakes.
- Heat the griddle first, switch it off, bring to optimum temperature and then again switch on to have the perfect round pancakes from the first one.
- Too hot griddle, the edges will be flower like and not smooth round pancakes.
- Also if the temperature is right, the color will be pleasant orange, not too dark brown.
You can use whole wheat flour in place of all purpose flour. The texture might be slightly denser and more milk is needed for right consistency.
For Vegan version use vegan milk and avoid butter/ honey. Use vegan butter and maple syrup.

- Cast iron griddle
- 1 cup All purpose flour/ plain flour
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- ½ teaspoon Salt
- 1 tablespoon Oil

- After 10 minutes again give it a mix.
- Heat an iron skillet (pan) until it gets hot. Switch off the stove and leave it for 5 minutes. Again switch on the flame and put it in medium flame.
- Grease with butter and pour one big ladle full of batter carefully. Do not spread.
- Wait until bubbles pop over the pancakes and the colour changes and flip carefully.
- Cook the other side for a minute and transfer to serving plate.
- Iron skillet (pan) works best to get golden brown color and even cooking.
- If you want you can cover and cook after flipping, this makes it even more soft and locks the moisture.
- If you heat the pan really hot and make the pancake immediately, the pancakes turn dark brown in color. That’s why I have heated the pan and switched off for a while to bring the temperature medium. ( I saw this in a video in you tube)
- If the pan is too hot, the pancakes will have edges like flower. that is it wont be a perfect circle. So make sure to keep the heat medium.
- Use a big ladle (or a ¼ cup), so that for all the pancakes, you use only one and so all of them would be on same size.
- You can use whole wheat flour as well, but experiment with the milk volume as it may take more.
- You can add cinnamon or vanilla essence to make it more flavorful.
- You can make this same with non diary milk and make it VEGAN by avoiding butter and honey.
