Pancakes are a breakfast staple that everyone loves. If you’re looking for a way to up your pancake game, why not try making sweet cream pancakes? These pancakes are fluffy, light, and have a delicious creamy flavor that will take your breakfast to the next level.


To make sweet cream pancakes, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1: Combine Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a separate bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

Step 3: Combine Mixtures

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Don’t overmix or your pancakes will be tough.

Step 4: Rest the Batter

Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. This will give the baking powder and baking soda time to activate, which will make your pancakes extra fluffy.

Step 5: Heat the Griddle

Heat a nonstick griddle or skillet over medium heat. You can test if the griddle is hot enough by sprinkling a few drops of water on it. If the water sizzles, the griddle is ready.

Step 6: Cook the Pancakes

Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour the pancake batter onto the griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancake, then flip and cook for another minute or two on the other side.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy

Serve the pancakes hot with your favorite toppings, such as maple syrup, whipped cream, or fruit.
