Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe

Fluffy American Pancakes

Pancakes are eaten all around the world. In France we find the thin crêpes, in Japan we have the savoury Okonomiyaki pancakes, and in Mexico: tortillas. Here in Netherlands, pancakes are eaten for dinner. Dutch pancakes are thin and eaten with lots of icing sugar, 'stroop', bacon, cheese or fruits. Dutch pancakes are popular at children's birthday parties. There are even restaurants that only sell pancakes.

In the US we find, maybe the most famous pancakes of all, the fluffy American Pancakes. American Pancakes are often enjoyed as breakfast. And I can understand why! These fluffy treats are easy to make, super tasty, light and filling at the same time.
