  • 2 Eggs Large
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable oil Or any other light, flavorless oil
  • 2 cups Milk Whole or 2%
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp Baking powder
  • 4 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder

Cinnamon Topping

  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Butter Unsalted, Melted


  • In a mixing bowl, add eggs, oil, milk and mix everything together. Keep aside.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon powder.
  • Dump this dry mixture into the wet mixture and mix until just combined. If there are some little lumps, don't worry about them and make sure not to over-mix!
  • Let this pancake batter rest at room temperature for 7-10 minutes.
  • Heat a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with butter or oil.
  • Pour batter in a circle pancake mold or just directly onto the pan by 1/4 cup scoops. 
  • Let the pancake cook on one side until it's bubbly. Then, flip it over and cook the other side for about 1 minute or until golden brown.
  • Let the pancakes cool down for about 10 minutes. 
  • Note: I used a "nonstick circle pancake mold" to make all these pancakes the same size and I think it may have also helped to make them fluffy since they don’t spread too much. They are fairly cheap on Amazon. 
  • Make the cinnamon sugar by mixing together sugar and cinnamon in a wide plate or bowl.
  • Brush each pancake with melted butter.
  • Coat them in cinnamon sugar and serve immediately. Enjoy!


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served fresh but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 day.
