Fluffy Cinnamon Pancakes – The easiest way to make your weekend breakfast special. And to get those lazy kids to jump out of bed!

I swear, this works every single time, for me. I just have to say pancakes and they come running! They even help setting up the photography boards and props, if I’m doing a pancake photo shoot. The clean up is faster than you can ever imagine…yes, that’s how much they love these pancakes!

This is my basic go-to recipe. It truly never fails. You can omit cinnamon ( though why?) and add some citrus zest. Or just keep it vanilla flavored.

Throw in a handful of chocolate chips or blueberries, mashed banana or diced apple. Add a teaspoon or two of coffee powder or cocoa or both. Stir in a nice fruit preserve.

Make it with any flour of your choice. I used wholewheat here. But feel free to use all-purpose flour or buckwheat or ragi ( finger millet flour). You really can’t go wrong!

It’s a versatile recipe that works with any flavor profile you’re going for.

I’ve used Greek yogurt in this recipe, but use an egg instead. It works just as well. They help in making the pancakes soft and moist. Sometimes I add both.

I prefer using non-dairy milk, just because I’m lactose intolerant. If I’m not eating these, I make them with regular milk too. This is really a simple, fool-proof recipe that guarantees great results every time.

How can I serve these pancakes

 My children love eating these with maple syrup and /or chocolate syrup. I enjoy them with honey or a fresh fruit compote and a bunch of fresh fruits. Sometimes thick yogurt sweetened with honey is what I’m in a mood for and that is lovely with pancakes. 

Tips to make fluffy pancakes every time:

To ensure fluffy pancakes, don’t overmix the batter.

Let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes before cooking.

Flip the pancakes gently and please don’t press them down with a spatula.

For extra fluffiness, add an extra 1/2 tsp of baking powder.

If you don’t have Greek yogurt, simply drain your yogurt for a few minutes to get rid of excess liquid.
