Fluffy mini pancakes, often referred to as “mini pancakes” or “silver dollar pancakes,” are small, bite-sized versions of traditional pancakes.
They’re a popular breakfast treat that’s perfect for kids and adults alike. Here’s a simple recipe to make fluffy mini pancakes: Ingredients: 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup buttermilk 1/4 cup milk 1 large egg 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional) Cooking spray or butter for the pan Instructions: Preheat Griddle or Pan: Preheat a non-stick griddle or skillet over medium heat. You can also use a pancake griddle or a non-stick pan.
Prepare the Batter: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract (if using). Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined.
It’s okay if there are a few lumps in the batter; overmixing can make the pancakes tough. Cook the Mini Pancakes: Lightly grease the griddle or pan with cooking spray or a small amount of butter. Use a tablespoon or small ladle to drop small amounts of batter onto the griddle, forming mini pancakes. Cook until small bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and the edges look set, about 1-2 minutes. Flip and Cook: Carefully flip the mini pancakes using a spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes on the other side, or until they’re golden brown and cooked through. Serve: Once the mini pancakes are cooked, transfer them to a plate and keep them warm.
You can cover them with a clean kitchen towel or place them in a warm oven. Serve the mini pancakes with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar. Enjoy:
Enjoy your fluffy mini pancakes as a delightful breakfast or brunch treat! Feel free to get creative with the toppings and add-ins. You can incorporate chocolate chips, blueberries, bananas, or even a touch of cinnamon to the batter for extra flavor.
