6 Tips to make Fluffiest Box Pancakes

Wouldnt it be amazing if we can make fresh fluffy pancakes everytime we crave for them. But lets be honest we dont always have the time to make them from scratch. Did you know that boxed mixes's can make fluffy pancakes just as the ones made from scratch. 

Boxed pancakes dont have to be boring and flat. You can make them light, fluffy and delicious by adding a few ingredients and following some easy tips. 

These 6 easy to follow hacks will elevate that boring pancake mix into the delicious, light and fluffy pancakes:

Sift the Pancake Mix

Pancake Mix
Sifting the pancake mix is the first step. It will aerate the mix resulting in fluffy and light pancakes. Make sure that there is some distance between the sieve and the bowl (18 inch) to maximise the result. 

Add Melted Butter

You dont have to add butter to the mix. However adding melted butter to boxed pancake mix makes it extra fluffy and gives it a delicious buttery taste.

Dont Overmix the Batter

Mixing The Batter

Once you have added the wet ingredients to your boxed pancake mix, try not to over mix it. Overmixing will make all the air bubble deflate that is created by the leavening agents in the mix. Leave the batter a bit lumpy. Mix just until the wet and dry ingredients are combined. About 8-10 swirls with your spatula should be enough to mix the batter.

Add some Cheese


Another hack to make boxed panckes moist and fluffy is to add a little bit of ricotta cheese to the mix. This will make the pancakes extra fluffy and creamy. Add a bit of a citrus flavor on top to make it super delicious. 

Add Egg whites and yolk separately 

Egg Whites & Yolk Seperaately

If you add eggs to your pancake mix then add the yolk first in the mix. Whip the egg whites separately and fold them in the pancake batter gently for beautiful fluffy Japanese style pancakes. Adding eggs to your pancake mix will give the batter a better texture and flavor. 

Add Baking Powder

If your pancake mix has been sitting around in your pantry for a while, then there is a chance that the baking powder added in the mix might have lost its power resulting in flat and boring pancakes. Add a pinch of baking powder to the mix and watch your pancakes fluff up and rise beautifully.


Add your favorite toppings like fruits and nuts and to the pancakes and stack them up. Pour maple syrup over the stack and you have some of the yummiest pancakes with minimal effort.
