American Style Pancakes Recipe

American Style Pancakes - ingredients flatlayThis post would have been better timed for Shrove Tuesday a few weeks ago, but my obsession with American style pancakes has only just started so I thought I’d share our recipe now anyway. I love them so much that I’m thinking about starting a new little family tradition of having American style pancakes on weekends if it continues. I used to have an obsession with crepes, nutella and banana, but these days it’s these thick, fluffy pancakes with creme fraiche, blueberries and strawberries that are totally ruling breakfast times in our house. This is a super easy, one bowl recipe that gives you thick fluffy pancakes of deliciousness every time. Enjoy!
