Light and fluffy, these American-style pancakes are great for a quick breakfast or a late weekend brunch. Drizzle with chocolate syrup or honey for a real indulgent treat!

With pancake day just around the corner, this easy American pancake recipe is the one for you. This quick American pancake recipe makes light and fluffy pancakes that are great for a weekend brunch or a quick breakfast.

Whip these pancakes up in no time for an impromptu dessert or an indulgent breakfast treat. Top with almost anything from golden syrup to the chocolate sauce to a handful of fresh berries and whipped cream. The options are endless!

So, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m not much of a breakfast person. My husband and I rarely, if ever, have breakfast. We usually just drink a cup of tea and that’s it, we are ready for the day!

Now I know that’s not exactly the healthiest thing to do, so I have started to develop simple and delicious breakfast recipes that I love to eat.

Everything about these pancakes is just great. They are extremely quick and simple to prepare. On top of that, the recipe uses only a few basic ingredients that everyone almost always has lying in their pantry. They are literally fool-proof and come out perfect every single time.

When it comes to topping ideas there are just so many to try that these pancakes will be able to cater to everyone. For chocolate lovers, Nutella or chocolate syrup is an obvious choice. If you want to be healthier then you can top it with fresh berries.

Maybe you want to drizzle on some honey. You can even have them plain. However, you choose to enjoy these delicious American pancakes I have no doubt in my mind that you will enjoy them. Dine for breakfast like a king (or a queen!).
