My childhood memories are riddled with pancakes for breakfast: be that making the batter, eating the batter raw, cooking and eating a stack the size of my head or getting creative with lavish toppings (anything that was in the pantry at the time). As I’ve grown older my love for pancakes has only strengthened, so when I opened Charlie’s Dessert House I knew we had to have my homemade fluffy pancakes recipe on the menu. What makes a great pancake to me is a plump, fluffy pancake that tastes as good as it looks. I’m confident to say we’ve got the fluffiest pancake recipe on offer and I’m proud to share it with you on the blog!


Pancakes are one of our top sellers off the breakfast menu and its not hard to see why: they’re a fail proof choice, every time!

The trick to a beautifully plump pancake is the generous addition of baking powder, which will help puff up your pancakes rather than leaving them flat and lacklustre. We serve two pancakes at a time and the recipe below will make around 4 pancakes (enough to serve two people). Enjoy!

How to make Fluffy Pancakes | World of Wanderlust How to make Fluffy Pancakes | World of Wanderlust


2 cups flour

5 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

3 tsp sugar

1 1/2 cups milk

1 egg

60 grams butter


Top your pancakes as desired – there’s no limit to your creativity! I like to add:

Mixed berries

Maple Syrup

Vanilla Ice Cream

Icing Sugar Sprinkle


  1. Melt the butter in the microwave briefly and set aside.

  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

  3. Create a well and add the milk, egg, and melted butter.

  4. Whisk together until smooth and no lumps remain.

  5. Heat your pan for 3-5 minutes, until the pan is hot and better sizzles when placed in the pan.

  6. Portion our your batter and cook until golden brown.

  7. Serve with maple syrup, mixed berries, vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of icing sugar!

    Thank you for sharing the recipe! I often whisk the egg and milk before adding flour, with no baking powder. Next time I will try your way! Looks so delicious.

    Yum yum yum! Pancakes are one of my favourites – do you have any idea how you could make fluffy vegan pancakes?! I guess I could replace the milk with almond milk and the eggs with flax eggs, but I’m not sure what I would replace the butter with? I want my pancakes to be fluffy but still be plant-based… hahaha the endless struggle! x

    Looks divine. Wonder if there is a vegan version without milk or would almond mylk work as well?
