Given today is Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Tuesday) I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing your best fluffy pancake recipe.  I am after a recipe for more dessert type pancakes as apposed to savory pancakes.  Your help is much appreciated.

I just use a ratio of 1 cup SR flour, 1 egg and 1 cup milk. You could use buttermilk instead to make it more deserty.

I love this recipe from Nigella.  I mix in everything except the butter and let it sit for 10-15 mins.  Then stir in the butter and cook.  Fluffy everytime.

I use 1 cup SR flour, 1 cup milk and 2 eggs.  Add a bit of sugar if you fancy and fry in butter.  Very fluffy indeed!

To make fluffy pancakes I separate the eggs and whip the whites until stiff.

1 C SR flour
2 eggs
3/4 - 1 cup milk (depending how thick you want your mixture)
1 Tsp melted butter

Separate eggs and beat the whites until stiff.
Mix everything else together.
Gently stir in the egg whites (don't mix it too much, you should still see lumps of egg white)

Cook as usual using melted butter in the pan. (We generally do these as blueberry pancakes dropping blueberries on as we cook them).

Thanks for reminding me it was shrove Tuesday. We might make pancakes after school for a treat.

I use buckwheat flour, eggs, greek yoghurt, pinch of baking powder. No measuring, just until it looks right. Buckwheat flour makes a really really nice pancake.

2 cups plain flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
2-3 tblsp melted butter or oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
500ml buttermilk

Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl, whisk wet ingredients together separately then add the dry to wet and stir only until just mixed.
Cook in butter for extra yumminess.
These make very fluffy American style pancakes, I add blueberries and banana to the mix and serve with maple syrup.

Just curious - what does the ice cold water do??

I am not a big fan of fluffy pancakes though. Crepes all the way!

Pretty much this, except I use ricotta. 1 cup ricotta, 1 egg, 1 cup buckweat flour and some baking soda (or 1/2 buckwheat 1/2 self raising), 310ml milk (mix wet and then add the flour). You could add sugar if you wanted them sweeter.

I do the 1 cup of SR flour, 1 egg, and 1 cup of milk. Sometimes I sprinkle in a bit of sugar to make them a bit sweeter... Love these pancakes!

I use this recipe, can always make with vinegar instead of lemon if I dont have any.
Kids love it, fluffy, yet with a bit of bite.

I use 1 cup SR flour, 1 cup milk, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon melted butter. For thick and fluffy I reduce the milk slightly, for thinner ones I add a little more milk.

I use the same recipe for both sweet and savoury pancakes, I just adjust the milk so that the batter is the right thickness for the dish I am making.

Tonight we're having ham, mushroom and spinach pancakes followed by Red Velvet Pancakes

I tried the red velvet pancakes on the weekend, they're yummy!

To make really fluffy pancakey things, I get about 4 eggs, whisk them with about the same quantity of milk till they are a bit bubbly. I add enough plain white flour till it just coats a spoon (somewhere between a half and a whole cup, depending on the weather).

Then, most important step, leave the batter in the fridge for about half an hour or so, and then whisk again before cooking in lots of hot butter.

Serve with maple syrup or similar. They soak up lemon and are no good with it.

I don't actually like fluffy pancakes, but they are the only kind I can make sad.gif Much prefer Mum's crunchy crepey pancakes. served with lemon and raw sugar.

This is my fav:

1 ½ cups SR Flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoon caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
60 gms butter

Put dry ingredients in and mix, then I melt butter, add milk and eggs and mix eggs thru it, then add that to the dry mix.

To make really fluffy good to leave to sit in fridge for 15mins before cooking but not essential, sometimes I alos just stick all ingredients in bowl then mix
