Who doesn't love pancakes for breakfast? These incredibly silver dollar pancakes are a wonderful way to start off your day. You don't need to use buttermilk in the recipe to achieve light, meltingly soft pancakes. This recipe is called in this way as these mini pancakes have the size of a silver dollar more or less- it's up to you to decide if you want them bigger or smaller.

This easy-to-make recipe takes less than 30 minutes to whip up, and give perfect results every single time. While this basic pancake recipe is amazing as-is, you can jazz it up by adding frozen berries, chocolate chips, or bananas to your batter – delicious! You can even add a savory topping.


How to Make Silver Dollar Pancake Batter

The key to great-tasting pancakes is getting the right consistency with your batter. It shouldn't be too thick or too thin, and with few to no lumps.

Let your batter rest for at least 10 minutes. This gives the baking powder and baking soda time to activate and lets the flour hydrate. Together, these handy little hacks will give you the fluffiest pancakes ever.

Tips for making the Best Silver Dollar Pancakes

Serve your pancakes with maple syrup, jam, honey, fresh fruit, yogurt, or for a real treat, enjoy them with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream.

If you like crispier pancakes, you can flip the pancakes a second time.

If you're on a gluten-free diet, swap out the all-purpose flour for the gluten-free flour of your choice. Add an extra splash or two of milk for tasty, ultra-fluffy, gluten-free pancakes.

Don't over mix the batter – if you do, you'll wind up with chewy pancakes instead of light, airy ones.


How to Reheat Leftover Pancakes

You have a few options when it comes to reheating pancakes. Layer 4 pancakes on a plate and zap them in the microwave for a minute. Or you can cover them with foil and reheat them in the oven for 20 minutes at 375°F. Finally, you can pop your pancakes in the toaster to reheat them. About 2 to 3 minutes will do the trick.

2 cups
Granulated sugar
1/4 cup
Baking powder

Whole Milk
1 3/4 cups

How to Make Silver Dollar Pancakes 

Pour flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl. Whisk to combine.

Form a well in the center of the flour. Add the milk, butter, vanilla extract, and egg.

Whisk the ingredients to combine, until the batter is smooth and mostly lump-free. Set off to the side for 10 minutes.

Heat a non-stick pan over low-medium heat. Lightly grease with cooking spray or butter. Ladle ¼ cup of the batter into the pan, and smooth the batter out to form a round. Cook until bubbles begin forming on the surface of the pancake. The bottom should be golden brown. Gently flip and cook until golden brown, then set on a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve with maple syrup and fresh fruit. Enjoy!
