We are well into the new year and time seems to be flying . We are fast aproaching one of my favourite days in the year …
This easy to execute and should be shared with everyone.
This recipe will serve 4-6 people.
Plain flour 260 g
Baking powder 2 tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
Caster sugar 3 tbsp
Milk 260 ml
Unsalted Butter 4 tbsp
To start this recipe melt the butter on a very LOW heat and once melted allow to cool slightly
Then sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt all together into a large mixing bowl
In a seperate bowl or measuring jug mix your eggs and milk together and once the butter has cooled slighlty add that to the milk and egg mix
Then using a fork start to fold your egg milk and butter through your flour mix until all mixed in.. if there are large lumps mix a bit more if there are small lumps dont worry as these will disapeare once you start to cook,
Allow this mix to stand for 5 mins just so the ingridents get to know each other and the baking powder starts to activate.
Heat your non stick pan to a low to medium heat once hot add a large laddle to the centre of the pan, do not try and spread the mix to the edge leave it nice and thick, if its to small for you add more on your next pancake…
Allow the pancake to cook for a 1-2 min on 1 side when you notice that the edges are holding shape take a spatular and flip it over to the other side, allow to cook for 2-3 mins then plate it up… then start the next 1.. you are on pancake duty so cook for everyone else before you yourself tuck in..
I love my American pancakes with Canadian maple syrup, but try somthing different like dropping some blue berries in the mix or strawberries and finish with whipped cream, try ice cream, some nutella, peanut butter, lemon syrup or just lemon juice. Why not go all out and have it with some streaky bacon, its up to you what you have with it.
as always enjoy..
