Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 120 g of flour 00
  • 1 egg
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • 20 g of butter
  • 20 g of sugar
  • 100 ml of milk
  • 1 pinch of salt


    1. Pour the well-sifted flour, salt, and sugar into a mixing bowl.
    2. Separate the eggs and begin to work the egg whites in a separate bowl, whipping them with an electric whisk until stiff.
    3. Pour the egg yolks into a glass and lightly beat them with a fork.
    4. Mix the milk into the flour with a whisk or fork.
    5. Mix in the beaten egg yolks and melted butter until thoroughly combined.
    6. Now add the baking powder, a pinch of salt, and the whipped egg whites and gently fold them in with a spatula working from the bottom up.
    7. Let's get started with the cooking. Place a small piece of butter in a small nonstick pan. Melt over medium heat, turning to coat the entire bottom of the pan.
    8. Pour a little of the batter into the pan with a ladle and rotate so that it covers the bottom: they must be much thicker than crepes, for example.
    9. Cook the American pancakes for about a minute on medium-high heat. When bubbles appear on the top surface of the pancake flip it with a spatula and cook for 30-40 seconds more. Continue until you've used up all of your butter and batter, and then stop.
