Fluffy Canadian Pancakes

It’s Sunday morning again.  Pancake time.  I am crazy every time I ask Grumpy what he wants for breakfast on a weekend because the answer is always “cakes”.  These are pancakes I made last weekend.  I happened to see the recipe on allrecipes.com as their recipe of the day and decided why not?

I am not sure why these are Canadian….seems pretty universal to me but anyway, my mom makes a recipe similar to this.  I should have known better than to think that just because I was using a recipe with a different name that I could make them turn out as yummy as hers.  This is why I don’t try to make certain recipes of hers very often.  Because hers are better than mine.  I make the Fluffy Pancake recipe much better than this one.  Oh, it was good, but not my mom’s!  Grumpy still ate them but when I make pancakes this weekend I will be back to my favorite Fluffy Pancake one (or maybe I’ll try Rachelle’s favorite one!)

These pancakes were topped with fresh homemade strawberry rhubarb jam.  I made the Berry Rhubarb Jam recipe but subbed strawberries instead of Raspberries.  Yummy.

Fluffy pancakes make a delicious weekend brunch. Easy to make and fool proof!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


    1. In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients. Stir in milk and egg yolk until smooth.
    2. In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain.
    3. Heat a lightly oiled griddle over medium-high heat. Pour the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Cook until pancakes are golden brown on both sides; serve hot with your favorite topping!
