Amazingly Fluffy Pancakes

Kyle was so sweet and made me pancakes one night, and he even took a picture! He used a recipe from Leite's Culinaria that was absolutely amazing. The combination of whipped egg whites and a tablespoon of baking powder make these amazingly fluffy. These are now our favorite pancakes and will probably revisit our kitchen for many years.

My cute cooking man

Once upon a time (aka before we got married and early marriage) Kyle used to swear by pancake mixes. He always agreed that from scratch was better but loved the convenience of a mix. I think by now though that I've finally convinced him that it's always worth it to make them from scratch, especially like this!

On another semi-side note I really hate going to places like IHOP and Denny's for breakfast. I'm always disappointed because I know that we can make better breakfasts at home that cost less and take about as much time after you drive there and wait for your food. Now that's even more apparent since these are even more delicious than my previously yummy pancakes and only take about a half hour from start to finish. I'd pay $10 for a plate of these, but I don't have to! Do you have any favorite at-home breakfasts?

Clinton St. Baking Company Pancakes Recipe

Featured at Leite's Culinaria from the Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, unmelted for the griddle and lots more for serving
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Maple syrup for serving

  • 1. Preheat the griddle to medium or medium low.

    1. Mix the dry ingredients together. 

    2. Separately mix the egg yolks, milk, melted butter, and vanilla together.

    3. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. 

    4. Using a mixer (or by hand if you have strong arm muscles) whip the egg whites to medium peaks (mostly hold shape). Make sure not to overbeat.

    5.  Butter the griddle.

    6. Use 1/4 cup of batter for each of the pancakes. Flip them when bubbles have formed on top and they are golden brown on the bottom. Repeat the buttering process as needed while finishing off the batter.

    7. Prepare your tastebuds for amazement. Enjoy with butter, maple syrup and any other toppings you desire!
