Woman shares trick to fluffy pancakes – and explains why they should be ‘lumpy’

One of the most exciting days of the year has finally arrived – Pancake Day.

But before you reach for your ready-made pancake mix, why not give this recipe a go.

TikTok user @majortraeger has shared her secret to the fluffiest pancakes – and they look to die for.

In a video that has been viewed more than 1.6 million times, Alix Traeger, a former Buzzfeed Tasty producer asked viewers: “Are you suffering from flat pancakes?

“I’ll teach you how to make them fluffy every time.”

Alix explained that you should mix your wet and dry ingredients separately and combine them when ready.

But the secret to perfectly-risen pancakes is not to overmix the batter as this will develop the gluten, and you’ll end up with a much tougher batter.

“Pancake batter should be a little lumpy,” she said on her website where she shared the full recipe.

You should leave the mixture to rest for around 10 minutes before you begin to cook them.

Pour some of the batter onto a non-stick pan and wait until you see bubbles forming on the top before you flip.

“It’s all in the wrist,” she revealed.

Then, stack them up and serve with toppings of your choice.

Since being posted, the video, which was captioned: “THE SECRET TO THE FLUFFIEST PANCAKES,” has received almost 370,000 likes and 2,300 comments.

Many people thought Alix’s pancake stack looked incredible, as one person said: “FOOD TIKTOK HAS SAVED ME ONCE AGAIN.”

Another person wrote: “Baking powder and lumpy batter is the secret… trust me y’all”, as a third penned: “I want the recipe.”

And a fourth commented: “This looks so bomb.”

But a few people said that they much prefer thinner pancakes than the thicker American-style ones.

As one person admitted: “I love flat pancakes.”

Another agreed: “Crepes are the best.”
