American fluffy pancakes recipe for a quick and easy breakfast

American pancakes they are soft pancakes that are simple and quick to make. Pancakes originate from the United States, are prepared for breakfast and are very similar to French crepes but smaller, more puffy and thick (about 3-5 mm) thanks to the presence of baking powder. The procedure is very simple just add the 3 liquid ingredients (milk, egg and melted butter) to the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt and yeast), mix and heat a non-stick pan, pour a few spoonfuls and you're done, in 2 minutes they will be ready! Here in the house we love them! The true original recipe calls for a tower to be formed with at least 2-3 pancakes and pour the famous maple syrup on the top, some red fruit and you'll love it, it is an alternative to an Italian breakfast based on croissants or sweets.

Stir again with the whisk for a few minutes until the mixture is smooth and almost fluffy, very similar to a liquid batter.
Let it rest while you prepare the pan, it is important that the pan is non-stick and without scratches (otherwise the pancakes will stick and burn easily); heat the pan well over medium heat to low. Put a piece of butter in a paper napkin and close the napkin into a bundle, press the butter wrapped in the napkin on the pan so that it melts a little and pass it over the entire already hot surface of the pan.
