Mini pancakes, silver dollar, little pancakes… whatever the name, these fluffy pancakes are both delicious and adorable! 

They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, parties and especially adored by children and the young at heart 😉

I used to make mini pancakes when my kids were toddlers. These silver dollar sized pancakes are just right for chubby little fingers to pick up! 

Although I have to confess that just as many accidentally (cough) ended up in my belly – they are simply SOOO yummy.

I know you will adore them too whether you are making them this Pancake Day or as a regular breakfast treat.

Silver Dollar Pancakes

You don’t need a mini pancake maker to make these mini buttermilk pancakes. Simply pan fry them in a skillet or bake them in the oven using a mini muffin tin. 

So called because these pancakes are the size of an American silver dollar – smaller than regular fluffy pancakes but not as tiny as pancake cereal!

I prefer the oven method because you cook a large batch in one go and they are all exactly the same size. Super cute!

What you will need

This is a classic buttermilk pancake recipe which makes fluffy thick American style pancakes. The batter can be mixed together by hand or you can blitz it with an immersion blender if you prefer. Make in a non-stick pancake pan or a silicone mini muffin tray.

  • Buttermilk
  • Melted butter
  • Vanilla extract
  • Large Egg
  • Baking powder
  • Plain / All purpose flour 
  • Sugar and salt

HOW TO MAKE MINI PANCAKES

Full measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page. Please take a look at the steps and video before attempting this recipe!

Combine the buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla and egg in a mixing bowl. Sift in the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. 

Use a balloon whisk to stir the ingredients together, starting from the centre of the bowl and slowly incorporating the dry into the wet ingredients until the batter is smooth. Alternatively you can blitz the ingredients using an immersion blender.

Rest the batter for 20 minutes and then stir again to dissolve any lumps.

Mixing batter for  pancakes in a bowl

Heat a little butter in a skillet and drop tablespoons of the batter. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface. Gently flip with a spatula.

Cook in batches, setting the pancakes on a paper lined plate while cooking the next batch.

Bake pancakes in the oven

Mist a good quality non-stick 24 hole mini muffin pan (or a silicone muffin pan). with cake release. Divide the batter into the holes filling halfway. Bake for 8 minutes at 220°C (435°F) or until the pancakes are puffed and golden. Use a spoon to gently pop out of the muffin tray.

How to Serve Mini Pancakes

  • These adorable silver dollar pancakes taste delicious all on their own, with their slightly crispy edges and puffy fluffy middles.
  • You can stack them, using a cocktail stick to skewer them, and serve them as appetizers with fresh fruit and maple syrup.
  • Skewer them with fruit, like mini kabobs, to serve as party treats.
  • Or simply pile them on a plate, allowing 6-8 per person (or as many as you like!) with maple syrup, honey or fruit compotes.

STORING YOUR MINI PANCAKES

Store any leftover pancakes in a sealed container in the fridge for up to two days, reheating before serving. Or freeze, separated by parchment paper, for up to three months.

Reheat the pancakes for about 15-20 seconds in the microwave or quickly pan fry to warm them up.
