Pancakes shouldn’t just be enjoyed on Shrove Tuesday, we think they’re a tasty breakfast all year round and lend themselves to being topped with a whole host of delicious ingredients to make these a delightfully indulgent weekend treat. We’re dipping into the ProCook archive for these tasty pancakes, but we are firm believers in the idea that some recipes stand the test of time and this is certainly one of them! We’ve topped them with blueberries and runny honey in our video, but another favourite of ours is maple syrup and beautifully crispy bacon for a more authentic American take on pancakes, or why not try chopped banana and peanut butter? The options are endless and we would love to hear what your go-to toppings are for these thick and fluffy American style pancakes.
Easy to make and a perfect indulgence on the weekend for lazy mornings, we’re confident our American Style Pancakes are sure to be a hit in your home. All you’ll need is a frying pan or crepe pan, a sieve, a large mixing bowl, a whisk, ladle and a turner, it’s as easy as that! These are a great recipe for getting little ones involved and they’ll love to help decorate them at the end, just make sure they are kept clear of hot pans during cooking to avoid any burnt fingers. You could try adding blueberries to the batter before cooking, or dropping them into the poured mix while the first side is cooking, just remember that when you flip them they may cooking a little faster and burn so keep an eye on them to avoid spoilt
