Heavenly Pancake Recipes

I always cook pancakes at home and this recipes are my favorite.

Pancakes Are a Thing and They're a Match Made in Breakfast Heaven


Homemade Pancake Recipe is thought to be the earliest food ever created, as prehistoric people ate it according to archaeological evidence.

According to food historians, the first written reference of these flat cakes dates back to the 5th century BC, when they were known as tagenias and were made from wheat flour, curdled milk, olive oil, and honey.

Pancakes can become boring, but you can liven them up by adding chocolate chips, fruit chunks, chopped nuts, or even candy bits as they cook.

So here are the recipes for Heavenly Pancakes that I usually cook at home:

Buttermilk Pancakes with Apples


Set aside instant mixes while making pancakes and make light and fluffy diner-style pancakes from scratch. So simple!


⅓ cup sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons water

2 apples, cored, chopped into small cubes, and mixed with 1 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon sugar

½ salt

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

4 cups buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

2 tablespoons butter, melted

oil, for brushing pan

How to cook Buttermilk Pancakes with Apples:

  • Prepare the chopped apples, combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Dissolve sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until it turns into a colorless syrup. Cool. Mix in the apples, chopped. Set aside.

  • Make the pancake batter by combining the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Combine buttermilk, beaten egg, and melted butter in a separate bowl. Combine the wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk just until combined.

  • Brush the pan with oil and heat it up. Depending on desired pancake size, pour ¼ to? cup batter at a time. Flip and cook the other side when the pancake base begins to brown and the surface begins to bubble. Re-oil the pan and cook the remaining batter in the same way.

  • On a serving plate, stack three or more pancakes. Put a pat of butter in the center. Drizzle with pancake or maple syrup and sliced apples on top.

Peanut Butter Pancakes


Yes, it is correct! Pancakes can be made without eggs! For this recipe, we used a really unusual egg substitute: peanut butter. These result in fluffy pancakes that prove that you don't need eggs to achieve a delicious breakfast.

If you don't have the exact ingredients, fresh milk can be substituted for the evaporated milk and water if you have it. You can omit the brown sugar or add to taste if you use sweetened natural peanut butter.


½ cup water

½ cup evaporated milk

¼ cup crunchy peanut butter

1 tablespoon vegetable oil, more for frying

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon salt

2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

How to cook Peanut Butter Pancakes

  • Combine evaporated milk, water, peanut butter, oil, and brown sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Mix until all of the peanut butter is dissolved. (A peanut milk mixture should be prepared.)

  • Add in the flour, salt, and baking powder with a spatula until just combined. (Be aware that the batter may be lumpy.)

  • Over medium-low heat, heat a nonstick frying pan. Apply some oil to the brush. Use the back of the scoop or a spoon to evenly spread out about ½ cup pancake batter into a round shape in the center of the pan.

  • Fry until the sides are matte and the tops are bubbling. Flip. Cook until the center returns to its original shape. Remove the pan from the heat. Continue with the remaining batter.

Red Velvet Pancakes


Anyone's morning will be brightened with a stack of fluffy red velvet pancakes. You'll want more of the cream cheese frosting once you've tried it!


3 teaspoons baking powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

salt, to taste

1 ½ tablespoons sugar

1 large egg, beaten

3/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more to cook

2 tablespoons red food coloring

semisweet chocolate chips, to top

toasted almonds, to serve

⅛ ounce pack cream cheese, at room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar, plus extra, to dust

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup whole milk

How to cook Red Velvet Pancakes

  • In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt, and sugar.

  • Mix in the egg, buttermilk, butter, and food coloring until everything is well blended.

  • In a small pan, melt the butter over low heat. In the center of the pan, pour ¼ cup batter and swirl the pan to form a circle. Cook for another 30 seconds before topping with chocolate chips, if desired. Cook for another 30 seconds or until bubbles emerge on the surface. Cook for 1 minute on the other side. Set aside. Continue with the remaining batter.

  • To make the cream cheese frosting, whisk together the cream cheese and the powdered sugar in a mixing bowl. Whisk together the sugar, vanilla, and milk until completely smooth.

Coffee Pancakes


You may do this or make Coffee Pancakes, which combine two of your favorite morning meals into one delectable plate. Although this recipe prepares pancakes from scratch, it can also be made with pancake mix.


2 tablespoons good-quality instant coffee granules

1 cup fresh milk, warmed

1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon brown sugar

¼ teaspoon salt

2 ½ teaspoons baking powder

2 tablespoons salted butter, melted, more for frying

1 large egg

How to cook Coffee Pancakes:

  • Coffee granules should be dissolved in fresh milk. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Make a well. Combine the cooled coffee and milk mixture, the egg, and the melted butter in a pan. Fold until everything is equally spread. (The batter will be thick and a little lumpy.)

  • Preheat a nonstick pan over low heat. If desired, lightly grease with butter. Pour ½ cup pancake batter into the center and shape into a round shape with the back of the measuring cup.

  • Cook until the sides of the pancake are firm and bubbles appear on the surface. Flip. Cook until the middle of the cake has risen and solidified. Remove the pan from the heat. Repeat with the rest of the batter.

It's time to try your cooking skills to make your own version of this cake. Even if you're not confident about your cooking abilities, you'll be able to ace this one! Don't forget to serve it with a variety of excellent toppings. Fresh fruits, jam, syrup, chocolate, butter, cheese cream It's up to you how you want it. Enjoy!
