How do you make pancake batter from scratch?

This recipe will show you our method of making pancakes from scratch. It does take an extra 5 minutes longer than your regular pancake recipe, however, the results are definitely worth it when you see just how absolutely fluffy your pancakes will be.

We don't add any butter or oil in the batter, so our method of adding the egg whites at the end will give you the delicious fluffiness you're after!

Are pancakes fattening?

They can be. It all depends on if you use fat such as butter or oil in the batter, and also if you add any toppings.

Is it better to add milk or water to pancake mix?

Adding milk makes the pancakes tender and adds more flavor. For this recipe, we used skimmed milk (very low fat milk)

Why aren’t my pancakes fluffy?

Not adding baking powder, over beating the batter, not whisking the egg whites, not folding the egg whites in gently are some causes of heavy or chewy pancakes. Follow the recipe step by step below to get the fluffiest pancakes ever!

Do you cook pancakes on high or low heat?

Pancakes really need to be cooked at medium to low heat.

Can I use frozen or fresh rhubarb?

You can use fresh or frozen rhubarb. If using fresh, we suggest cooking for a few seconds in the microwave first to break the fruit down a little
