Fluffy Sweet Cream Pancakes Ingredients

Fluffy Sweet Cream Pancakes Recipe

This is what you’ll need to make the fluffy sweet cream pancakes:

  • 1 cup of flour (Feel free to use a wheat flour substitute if that’s your preference.)
  • 1 ½ Tablespoon of sugar (Try brown sugar too, if you want!)
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 cup of milk (We use Lactaid because my husband and son are allergic to regular milk, but this is where you can get creative with different kinds of milk)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 3 Tablespoon of oil shortening, like Crisco, melted (You could substitute this for vegetable oil too if you want.)

  1. Before you get started, heat up your skillet or pancake griddle (this is the one I use) to medium heat to get the perfect golden brown, fluffy pancakes  (If you want to make pancakes with animal face designs, click here for this fun griddle kids are sure to love.)
  2. In a bowl, mix all of the ingredients in the order listed to create the homemade pancake batter  It’s important to start with the dry ingredients first.
  3. After you’ve created your pancake mix, it’s time to use that griddle! (You don’t need a greased griddle if yours is non-stick.)
  4. Now, throw that batter onto your pancake griddle and wait a few minutes. I suggest aiming to create 4-inch pancakes  This makes thicker pancakes – fluffy. To make thinner pancakes, make them a little larger when you pour the pancake mix onto the heated griddle.
  5. When you see the tops bubble, it’s time to flip the perfect pancakes. After my husband makes plain pancakes, he adds chocolate chips to the batter for himself and the kids.
  6. Top with some sweet cream butter and maple syrup of your choice. Because my husband is Canadian, he uses real maple syrup on his delicious pancakes  (But I still like the good ol’ American maple syrup  The Canadian stuff tastes a little too different for me.)
