Playing How To Make The Best Pancakes EVER By Grant Melton

Former show producer and baking guru Grant Melton shares his secrets (and recipe) for extra-fluffy, flavorful pancakes. 

Grant's Top 3 Tips For The Best Pancakes EVER:

  1. Folding in whipped egg whites makes a light, fluffy pancake. 
  2. Using part-butter and part-oil in the batter gives the pancakes good flavor and ensures moistness. 
  3. Wipe the skillet clean between batches to ensure the pancakes color evenly.

  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ¾ cups milk
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • Cooking spray, for griddle


Serves: 4


Preheat oven to 200˚F. Set a wire rack on a baking sheet. 

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Make a well, then add the milk, melted butter, canola oil and egg yolks. Whisk until the mixture just comes together with some lumps remaining. 

Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff. Using a rubber spatula, fold into the batter until no streaks of egg whites remain. 

Preheat a griddle over medium-low heat. Once hot, coat lightly with cooking spray and immediately add the pancake batter in ½ cup portions. Once bubbles appear on top, flip and cook for a few minutes more. Remove pancakes to the prepared baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Wipe the griddle between batches with a paper towel and repeat with the remaining pancake batter and, if needed, cooking spray.
