Fluffy Canadian Pancakes
Fluffy pancakes that melt in your mouth. Separating the eggs and folding the whipped whites into the batter, nothing is better. Grills up to a golden brown.

I started reading the reviews while beating the egg whites, and I nearly decided to throw the batter out. Sure glad I didn't! I added a tablespoon of sugar to the white's and a dash of salt, and the whole family loved them! And they DID turn out nice and fluffy. Those whose didn't, must have been an operator error? Ain't always the recipe, sometimes it's the cook! Amen?Read More
Although these are very light and fluffy, as other reviews have said, they are very, very eggy!! If I were to re-name this, I would call it French Toast Pancakes, because that is exactly what it tastes like!! I added 3 tspn. white sugar and 1 tspn. of vanilla. I also added fresh blueberries to half the batter and no matter what, they still tastes too eggy--but I am sure my husband will eat them, he is like Mikey and will eat anything!!Read More

The best pancakes I have ever tasted. Seriously. I have eaten a lot of pancakes at home and at the best diners but never so light and delicious. Plus you don't get the after-brunch-stomach-blues because they're not heavy at all. I agree with other reviewers about adding a tablespoon of sugar, but with a sweet topping adding more is unecessary. About the "too much egg" issue, I assume that some other reviewers didn't beat the egg whites enough. You will know when they are stiff enough when you can turn the bowl upside down and they don't fall down. One really needs an electric beater to make the egg whites stiff or else you'll lose your arm. It is, of course, easy to remove one egg yolk if it floats your boat better. They even taste good after a few hours, while most pancakes turn inedible.
I enjoyed making this recipe. The pancakes were extremly fluffy and had great colour. The only problem is that, using 3 egg yolks made the recipe quite "eggy." I could taste the egg yolks in the pancakes. I would suggest reducing the number of egg yolks to 1 or 2 and using 3 egg whites to maintain the fluffiness of the pancakes.

really (x 100) good recipe will be normal breakfast in my house. Big hit with the kids! just leave one egg out and isn't eggy at all. Make batter overnight and let it set. Makes it 100% better! Thank you!
I thought this recipe was delightful. I made into more of a dessert than breakfast. I added 1 tsp. vanilla and 1/8 cup sugar to the batter. I also added 1/8 cup sugar to the egg whites while beating. They really cooked up light and fluffy. I then topped off the pancakes with blueberry syrup and RediWhip whipped cream. Yummy!!! Thanks very much for this recipe.
My husband and I LOVED this recipe! It is true that the recipe does have a slightly 'eggy' taste, but it is very tasty. The results are light and fluffy... and very yummy. I tried saving some batter to use a little later, but the whites seperated. I mixed it up again, but the pancakes were very thin, and not as tasty as the fresh batch.
This is a wonderful recipe!! I use it all of the time now! Very fluffy as long as you are careful to follow the directions, and fold the batter. I've often added chocolate chips or apple to the batter and it always turns out yummy!
I took the advice from the other reviewers and cut back to one egg yolk. I also decided to use my regular boxed all purpose mix. The pancakes came out very fluffy and the end result was yummy. Thanks!
The recipes is superb as is if you are using a sweet topping, but if not, follow what other reviewers have said and add the bit of sugar and pinch of salt. These are the lightest, fluffiest pancakes EVER!I make these pancakes ALL the time. They've actually become a signature menu item of mine. The key is in sufficiently whipping the whites to a meringue...no meringue, no fluffy! Oh, and BTW, I don't use an electric mixer. It's great exercise for the forearm! :-)
This recipe may take longer to fix than the regular pancakes.... but, wow, is it worth the extra trouble. You can't make more fluffy pancakes than this and they are melt in your mouth delecious!!
These were ok for me. My favorite still is the Fluffy Pancake recipe on here. My mom makes a pancake similar to this one and I love them when she makes them but I just don't make them the same way. Could just be because I love my mom's and so my own making of this type will not compare! All said, this is a good recipe so do give it a try!
We have these pancakes regularly in our household, it is the best pancake recipe I have used. I love that it is so basic and easy and yet they turn out great every time - I think that beating the egg whites makes all the difference. Unlike the other reviews, we have never found them to be too eggy (and I do use 3 eggs).
I hate pancakes. Despise them. Yuck. I only make them for my family. The first time I made these I did what I always do -- take one forkful and then I've at least "tried" them. OH MY GOODNESS! I could eat these all day long. As well, they KEEP! Even eating them hours later, when the older ones crawl out of bed, they are STILL DELICIOUS! (once I made so many we had some leftover the next morning and they were awesome!) THIS IS THE RECIPE TO MAKE! Thank you for posting this. :)
This is the best pancake recipe I have found. My husband is very picky about his pancakes and every time I've tried to use a recipe it doesn't turn out the way he likes it. Until now. I'm not sure what every one else is talking about but these pancakes are fluffy and delicious. The only change I made was adding 1/3 cup of sugar with the flour. PERFECT!
I found these pancakes rather ordinary. I wouldn't classify them as "fluffy", probably because my family is use to fluffy so I expected more since they were actually called "fluffy". They tasted okay but not anything I would be over the moon for.
Works well with rice flour, too!
These turn out really good, light and fluffy. They have become our new favorites, and they are easy to make.
The texture in these was very good, but I found there to be a noticeable baking powder flavor. I will cut back on this next time. I also found the addition of a little sugar and salt to be a great benefit to the flavor of the dish.
best pancakes i have ever had
This is the best pancake recipe I've ever found! Since I like my pancakes sweet I added: 2 tbl sugar, and 2 tsp. vanilla. I haven't tried them without the added ingredients. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! Blessed be!
Just made these for company this past week. OMG, SOOO delicious!! They are truly as light and fluffy as they say they are. Yum, yum. I just added some blueberries and a tablespoon of sugar. Real good warmed up too. I would put these up against anyone's pancakes. Anywhere. Anytime!
Added a tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract while whipping the egg whites, but otherwise a great recipe! Mine were extremely fluffy. Be sure not to miss the step of folding in the egg whites, as this is more gentle on the mixture than stirring and will keep it from going flat.
Best pancake that I have ever had! Why go out when it's so easy to make these at home! It does make a lot of batter, more than 2 people could eat and the batter does not sit well in the fridge.
These pancakes turned out extremely light and fluffy, but they had a baking powder after taste, that I didn't really care for. If I were to make them again, I would definitely add less baking powder.
A great recipe if you love nice fluffy pancakes. The next time I make them though, I am going to add a couple of tablespoons of sugar. I found no sugar made them kind of bland. I will definitely use this recipe again.
Wonderful fluffy pancakes! They need a bit of sugar in the batter because they are not sweet at all...but overall a GREAT breakfast for my six kiddos!
I really loved this recipe because it doesnt taste like cotton in my mouth! This is a great basic recipe that can handle alterations well :) Today I added cinnamon and vanilla then threw the batter in my waffle iron. My 18 month old ate 2 whole belgian waffles to himself! The only alteration I made to the recipe was from other reviewers comments. I added a bit of sugar to the egg whites to help fluffen them. Wonderfull recipes! :D
Fluffy is right! Just make sure they're cooked through in the center. Very yummy when you want a WOW pancake.
I was not impressed with this recipe and agree with other reviewers who said it was "too eggy"
Whipping the whites was an interesting step. There is another recipe I prefer more, but this one isn't too bad.
I was a little hesitant at first to make these because there were no reviews (yet). I was also a little wary of using 3 eggs and just 1 cup of flour. I thought they might taste too "eggy". However, I decided to try them and I must say they're terrific! A little "eggy" but in a good way. Granted, there's a little "extra" work in beating the egg whites but it's worth it. If I have a little time to cook, this will be the pancake recipe I will use - it's worth having to use the extra bowl and digging out the mixer. :-) If I'm really really pressed for time, I'll use my regular 'one bowl' recipe.
They turned out great! I only had two eggs, but it was not a problem at all. I could still taste the egg a bit and I can see how three might be too eggy for some people, but I hand-beat mine so I'm actually kind of glad I could taste the extra work I put into it. It's also nice that the batter went very far. I didn't exactly need it this time but I'm used to other recipes under-yielding (which is probably entirely due to my skill level and not the actual recipe).
These egg-focused pancakes seem like almost a fusion of crepe and pancake recipe. Being from Louisiana, I couldn't resist adding some extras. I used a TBSP sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1TBSP melted butter, and a bit of homemade vanilla extract. The batter came out a bit thin probably because of the butter, but it made for yummy, light, thin little flapjacks. I love the separated, whipped egg technique and will definitely use it again.
We loved it. It had a definite egg taste which was nice!
These pancakes were easy to make and came out looking really nice but had no taste. I was disappointed as I really wanted to like them but they were the most tasteless pancakes I have ever made.
This is a pretty standard recipe
Found them bland and lacking that certain something. Still looking for the Perfect Pancake.
These Pancakes were fluffy, but rather tasteless. They were very easy and actually pretty fun to make. They cooked to a perfect golden brown too. I added only 1 egg yolk, like some other reviewers suggested. I could just get a tiny hint of the egg so I think 1 yolk is about right. I might try this recipe again but with butter milk instead of the whole milk I used. Instead of 4 large pancakes I made about 15 "dollar" sized ones about 2-3 inches across. Thanks for sharing.
omg 3 eggs were wayyy to much. tasted like egg tart ):
These came out very light and fluffy. I've been searching every where for the perfect pancake recipe. Although this isn't the most perfect I would definitely make these anytime for anyone. My 1 year old loved them as well. I tweaked the recipe a little by following another user and added 1/8 c. Of sugar to the batter and egg whites. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla to the egg whites with a dash of salt. They came out delicious. Would definitely recommend these to everyone. On the downside they were a little eggy. Instead of 3 egg yolks I will probably use 1 or 2 next time but I wouldn't change the egg whites because they give them they're fluffy consistency. But all in all this is a terrific recipe thanks for sharing.
Great! Nice easy recipe using simple ingredients. And they are fluffy, just as my boyfriend requested! Next time I will add a little bit of vanilla to give them a little extra flavour. Thanks!
These pancakes were great! They seemed to melt in your mouth. They were quite simple to make too. The only problem I had with them was that they're not very sweet, though with some sort of topping (like maple syrup) that problem was easily solved!! They were by far the best pancakes I have ever tasted!!
These are great! I did not find them to be eggy. I did make sure to get the whites nice and stiff ("Aha! So THAT'S what stiff egg whites really look like") For electric stoves I would recommend not cooking at medium high, more like just below medium. I added a bit of salt and a bit of sugar and served with farm butter, which was just right for us. Thanks for the recipe!
I used Whole Wheat flour and did not separate the eggs, just mixed it all up. Loved it! The best and easiest pancakes I've ever had. Thanks.
Straightforward recipe, but you may have to add more milk to get the right consistency. Also remember to sift the flower. Other than that, once cooked you just pile them up and pour the maple syrup and enjoy.
WOW!! SOOOOO Fluffy and Very Tasty and i eat pancakes EVERY MORNING that my canadian husband makes..but these top the list of recipes. Do heed the advice and add 1TBSP sugar and dash of salt to the egg whites to make these spectacular.
I added 2 tbsps of splenda, one of vanilla, and sliced a very ripe banana and folded it in and these pancakes were amazing. They didn't look great- I gotta tweak that a bit but wow, easily the best and easiest pancakes ever. Thanks so much!
not bad, they were a bit eggy not in a bad way just different, and filling
These turned out flat and rubbery with not a very good taste.
they were light and fluffy but were quite bland. i even added sugar and a little vanilla...it was still missing something. ( I always top my pancakes with butter and syrup) this was ok.
I agree with others it would've been too eggy adding 3 yolks, I added one and the three whites, still found it a little "eggy". I added blueberries to mine, they were all right but they were fluffy!
This recipe is very special to me because I'm an egg lover. The pancakes do have the faint taste of eggs, following a fluffy interior and a crunch on the exterior. I whipped the whites and added them last, folding them for 1-2 minutes (slowly). Butter was my choice of fat, which makes them very rich and inevitably optional to add butter afterwards. In the dry ingredients, I did add a Tablespoon of sugar and used nonbleached bread flour. They were absolutely deish!!
The texture of this pancake was amazing. It was super fluffy, but it was lacking in flavor. I will try a little salt, vanilla, cinnamon and perhaps some fruit next time.
I finished making these pancakes two minutes ago and I just had to write this review right now. They are great! I was never able to make truely "fluffy" pancakes until I came across this recipe. I had tried another pancake recipe on this site (the one with the most rav reviews) but they turned out doughy & very rubbery. However, I did add some sugar to the batter & used only one egg yolk & two egg white. I might consider adding some melted butter next time too. But overall, the best pancake recipe I have ever tried!
Loved these! I'd forgotten about this technique (which I'd learned from a Canadian friend over 30 years ago). Added blueberries. It was a wonderful 'breakfast for dinner' meal.
Made these the other morning and they were fluffy and delicious! Thanks for the great recipe. I will be making these again!
Very Good! I added 1 TBSP of sugar to egg whites while beating them. They were a hit with the kids.
These were beautiful and fluffy. However, they did taste a little too much like egg for my preferences. I used 2 egg yolks, like recommended, but probably should have only used one.
I nearly didn't make these after reading the reviews, but decided to give it a go anyway. They were light, fluffy and perfect with a dollop of strawberry jam. Slendid.
These pancakes were delicious. I added vanilla and sugar because I like the taste. These were very simple to make and my family loved them. Thanks for sharing. Don't do egg whites without a beater.....that would be to much work.
These were fluffy, but definitely needed some flavor. Additionally, the fluffiness came off as almost spongey. Still, a decent pancake recipe.
really good! ! ! i recomend this for alot of ppl :)
GREAT recipe! Fluffy, easy and wonderful tasting! I added 1/8 cup of sugar to the flour mixture along with butter extract and vanilla as the other reviewer suggested. I also added 1/8 cup of sugar to the beaten egg whites. Im a Southerner and can't imagine pancakes that aren't a little sweet.
I added 1 tbsp sugar to egg whites, whipped to peaks, added about 1 tsp vanilla to pancake mix. Asked family to tell truth in comparison to my regular bisquick pancakes. Hubby said it was missing something, maybe some nutmeg or cinnamon, otherwise pretty tasteless (he ate two pancakes and was done). 8yr old son said they were really good and ate 5 pancakes. I didn't think they were bad, but overall, didn't beat Bisquick. Still worth a try though.
These pancakes were so easy to make and so light and dee-licious too! Thank you!
After seeing many mixed reviews on this recipe, I decided to go ahead with the original recipe to give it a chance and then add other things if it didn't work out. Well.....it didn't work out. As many others said, it was WAY to eggy. I did whip the egg whites to a stiff peak, and regardless it was eggy. I added another (approx) 3/4C flour, 1/2t B. Powder, a couple pinches of salt, as well as sugar & 3/4C milk. With these alterations they were beautiful pancakes!!! But unfortunately I cannot give this a good review based on the original recipe.
These have the perfect texture and we didn't think they were too eggy. They could use a little something, though, I might try it with buttermilk next time.
My husband is the one who found this recipe. He has been trying to cut back on sugar in his diet and this recipe didn't have any in it, so he tried it out, with great results. The whole family loved these pan cakes. They were light and fluffy with no baking powder bitterness. He did add a little vanilla to the mix. We have also tried them with rice milk instead of the milk as a non-dairy alternative. We have yet to be disappointed. After you pour the batter into the pan add some berries, or apple or banana slices before you flip them. Yummy. Of course, the kids also eat them plain, topped with maple or fruit syrup, peanut butter, or Nutella. I haven't tried this yet, but because they have no sugar you can also top them with savory foods. No we're getting creative!
Very very good. Light, and fairly fluffy. I did find it missed a little something in flavor, but I am not sure what. I do not even mind the slight egg taste. Maybe next time I will try to add a tiny bit of cinnamon or sugar. But I will definitely use this again.
Yummers! These were great, they do have a bit of a French Toast taste but I think they are even better than French Toast. For newbie cooks, make sure your griddle isn't too hot or you'll cook the outsides before you cook the insides - requiring a 20 second spin in the microwave. Not that I'd know anything about that...
Very fluffy! Perhaps a bit of vanilla/sugar for a sweeter taste, but we loved these and will use the recipe, amended, as 'ours'!
We thought these were great & very easy!Thanks for sharing!
I was excited to try this recipe because of the majority of good reviews but was sadly disappointed. We followed the recipe exactly other than adding 1 TB of sugar as advised by one reviewer. The pancakes were bland and more on the flat side. They were not fluffy. Thanks for the recipe anyhow.
These were not good. I took other people's suggestions and cut the egg to 1 yolk, added sugar and vanilla and salt. They still tasted like eggy french toast. I like french toast, but not when I want pancakes.
As everyone stated on their review, it did come out very fluffy. However, I tasted something very bitter in the after taste. I put in a tablespoon of baking powder. Was it meant to be a teaspoon?
Excellent and simple recipe. The pancakes turn out nice and fluffy. I have made this several times and have not been dissppointed. I have also tried adding grated apple, cinnamon and sugar....so delicious!
Definitely to eggy. Nice and fluffy. I haven't tried this yet, but a recipe that I have for waffles separate the 3 eggs also. Maybe adding 2 tbls sugar and 1 tbls of grated lemon rind would help.
Excellent We loved them and will use this recipe again :)
Exceptional pancakes! I was looking for a recipe with more eggs per cup of flour- as my kids won't eat eggs directly and I have to make indirect efforts :) Beating the egg whites separately made all the difference I think , the result was a fluffy pancake with beautiful glazed sides! Also for the first time ever my pancakes had little bubbles on the top while cooking! Great recipe- Thanks ! ps. I did add some vanilla and salt and topped with chocolate.
absolutely wonderful. I did add 1 tbs sugar t a double recipe. best I have ever made
I simply LOVED this recipe! I've tried others but this one really makes deliciously delicious pancakes. I tried scattering a lot of sugar and pounded groundnuts (roasted) on top of the pancake, let it brown at the bottom on a low flame and fold it once. They really make great snacks. My neighbours loved them and their children can't get enuf !!!
Wow! These came out perfect... Threw in some blueberries but actually think they were better without. Definite keeper!
This is a great basic recipe! My kids ate them up. They were light , fluffy & just sweet enough. I did follow the suggestions of the other reviews. I added 1 TLBS sugar & vanilla ,1 tsp salt and used only 2 egg yokes. It seemed that they took just a minute longer to cook than a regular pancake recipe. Give them a try!
Based on others suggestions, used 3 egg whites & only 1 yolk. Not alot of flavor. I suggest using Fluffy Pancakes by kris from this website.
These are just like what my grandma used to make. They are wonderful light pancakes that taste wonderful with fruit topping.
Easy to make, beautiful to look at....but didn't pass the family taste test
These pancakes were really fluffy and delicious. I did add some vanilla and sugar like the other reviews suggested. I made them for my fiance and myself because we had a snow day and had no pancake mix. I will never use bisquick again. They were really easy to make and we ate all of them. They go best with REAL maple syrup
finally!!! i've been looking for a recipe like this so i don't have eat anything box! these real pancakes look delish i gotta try this recipe sometime!!! thank you much for sharing this recipe!!!!!!!!
these fluffy pancakes are sooooooooooooo good
These were a bit of work, but everyone was pleased with the texture and with maple, or honey and cinnamon, they were quite tasty. I think next time I might add some cinnamon and spices to the pancakes themselves, though, because as others have noted, they are quite plain.
I am usually very positive about recipies from this site; however, I did not care for these pancakes. They were fluffy, but I felt, tasteless. I believe salt would help. Sorry but these are not a keeper for me.
These were incredible! I was lucky when I made these because it was cool and moist outside when I whipped the whites. The only thing I changed was add 1/4 tsp. of salt and a tsp. of vanilla. They were really light and fluffy. Really good. My family inhaled them and asked for seconds. If you don't like an eggy pancake, don't make these. I paired them with the Heart Attack Eggs from this site. We had a GOOD breakfast.
These were very good and fluffy...my boyfriend must. Have told me a bazillion times how good the cakes were while we were eating. I did add a tablespoon of sugar and a dash of salt to the egg whites...but that is the only changes i made to the recipe.
Oh, I do have to give this a good review! Nice and fluffy but nothing special. It does make more than 4 servings I would say! A simple little breakfast to start the day.
I was planning on adding egg whites to my pancakes and found this recipe - a perfect base recipe!! I used buttermilk instead of milk, only 2 yolks and 3 whites, and added 1 tsp sugar and vanilla. I folded in a few fresh blueberries from our farmer's market, then served it with store bought syrup doctored up with vanilla and butter then heated. Decadent and delicious! Stir the least bit you can to keep the air pockets!!
