Did anyone say Fluffy Pancakes?

Yep, you heard it here first… these are THE Fluffiest Pancakes for 2! I wrote this post a veryyyy long time ago and it went crazy on Pinterest. Old photography was not a problem here. People tried this recipe and loved it!

It truly is such an easy recipe! I decided to come back and update it a bit and will keep doing that if it helps y’all make better pancakes!

The best pancakes for two recipe. These are fluffy, thick, slightly sweet, quick and easy in under 15 minutes. Made with simple pantry ingredients, these are the perfect thing to wake up to!

It’s made with a few pantry ingredients and in small quantities. It’s perfect for brunch for two, or just eat one stack and freeze the rest for a future breakfast. I do that quite often actually.

Better yet, I now add chocolate chips to these and make small pancakes and freeze a big batch. Grace eats one every morning with her breakfast. I just pop one in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and it’s good to go! She absolutely loves them!

Here’s what they look like:

For some more fun add-ins we’ve tried:

  • mini marshmallows,
  • chopped up Reese’s peanut butter cups
  • M&M’s
  • white chocolate chips
  • sprinkles
  • pecans

The original Fluffiest Pancakes for 2 Post:

Mikey and I love to go out to brunch.  We like to find all the little spots in Miami and try a new place once a week or so.  Sometimes they’re sit down restaurants and other times they are bakery type places where you grab your food and go.

It has definitely been fun discovering our favorite places in the city! I wrote a post that I try to update regularly about our favorite Miami brunch spots.  Check it out here!

Mikey loves the savory breakfasts, but my favorite are the sweets.  Waffles, pancakes, french toast, crepes…I love them all!  And I love narrowing down which restaurants have the best of each.

A restaurant down here that I think has the best pancakes in town is Chuck Wagon.  They are huge, fluffy pancakes.  None of these boxed, thin pancakes.  They are perfect.  

They are made in a cast iron skillet (I asked!) and it makes allllll the difference. I purchased my own cast iron skillet just for these and they turn out so much better than a classic pan!

Load that baby up with butter, add your batter and let that cast iron create the perfect texture on your pancakes. You can seriously taste and feel the difference.

In case you’re in the market for a cast iron skillet, here’s the one I have and LOVE (bonus: it’s under $15!). You can do SO much with a cast iron skillet in the kitchen. Definitely a staple piece for me.

Since having those amazing pancakes at one of my favorite breakfast spots around here, I’ve been working on creating a recipe to get the same results at home.  And here is my recipe for pancakes for 2 (or 1 one with leftovers…or no leftovers, I won’t tell :p).  

Now I can make the buttery, fluffy and airy pancakes from Chuck Wagon right at home whenever I want.  And the best part, these are The Fluffiest Pancakes for 2 I’ve ever tried! That’s a win! ;)

If you make these pancakes, be sure to tag me on Instagram or use the hashtag #toeatdrinkandbemarried.  I’d love to see them and share! :)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 2


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • butter for the pan


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking power, sugar and salt.
  • In another bowl, whisk the milk, egg, vanilla extract, and melted butter.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and give it a good whisk until just combined. (if the batter seems too thick, you can add a bit more milk…but remember, thick batter, means thick pancakes!)
  • Melt a bit of butter in a large cast iron skillet, griddle or pan over medium high heat.  Ladle about 1/2-3/4 cup (or use the blue scoop from this set…it's my favorite for many things!) of batter into the pan.  Cook just until it begins bubbling on the surface, and then flip the pancake. Once cooked, set aside, repeat with the rest of the batter.


For the best texture and flavor, use a cast iron skillet loaded with butter (the more the better, seriously!).

      They are! My 3 grandsons love them and this is their request for breakfast the first morning that they are here! Try them.

        1. Andrea…
          I tried these and didn’t have the same result. They were actually very good.
          It is the first time Inused White Lily flour and I think it did make a difference,
          Also, not sure how old your baking powder is but if it is old, that would contribute as well…..
          My batter wasn’t too thick and they turned out ok just following the recipe.
          It made 12- 3” pancakes and if making for four people I think I will make 8- 5”.

  1. Yum, can’t wait to make pancakes next weekend! I have to try the banana pancake version, I have been craving banana everything lately.

    1. Not too had- the batter is quite thick and ended up seeming more like fry bread than pancakes. That being said, they taste great! Just verrryy thick batter lol

    Pancakes are definitely one of my favorite breakfast/brunch foods, and the portion size on these is just right! Also, they look amazing!

    1. I make these into mini chocolate chip pancakes for my toddler and she eats one with breakfast every morning. I just freeze them and pop them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds when I’m prepping her breakfast. They turn out great!!

  3. I’m trying these first thing in the morning!!! I don’t have any baking powder though … I’ll take my chances without. I know my boyfriend will be thrilled whether or not they turn out good (no offense to your recipe, my cooking skills aren’t good with sweets). Thanks! Yummy.

    1. Aw so sorry to hear that. Maybe next time try adding lightly adding the flour instead of packing it. Hope you give it another chance and love it!

  4. Just found what looks a great recipe Hubby is the pancake maker in our house and he’s keen to try a new recipe. So will let you know how it goes.

  5. I just made pancakes from scratch using your recipe and they came out great. I wanted to make a small batch with easy ingredients and instructions and this were perfect. Thank you.

    These were delicious! Fluffy and crispy (I used a good amount of butter in the pan.) I will be making these again!
