How To Make Pancakes
By Yummy Pancakes
You Will Need
2 cups (18oz/510g) self-rising or all-purpose flour (See tips below)
2 or 3 eggs
1 1/2 cups (350ml) of milk
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of butter/vegetable oil
5 tablespoons of sugar (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt (optional)
Add a pinch of salt.
2.Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Make sure that it's completely melted; about a minute is sufficient.
3.Add the butter and milk to the mix. Stir gently, leaving some small clumps of dry ingredients in the batter. Do not blend until completely smooth. If your batter is smooth, your pancakes will be tough and flat as opposed to fluffy.
4.Heat the frying pan to a medium low flame. If you have an initial "pancake" setting on your stove, use that. Be sure to use non-stick spray, or a pat of butter so the pancakes won't stick.
5.Sprinkle a few flecks of water onto your pan. If it 'dances', or jumps from the pan with a sizzle, the pan is ready for the batter.
6.Pour about 3 tablespoons to 1/4 cup batter from the tip of a large spoon or from a pitcher onto the hot griddle or greased frying pan. The amount you pour will decide the final size of your pancakes. It is best to begin with less batter, and then slowly pour more batter onto the pan to increase the pancake size.
7.Cook pancakes for about 2 minutes and you see there there golden flip it over.
8.cook over side until golden then remove from pan.
9.Enjoy your delicious pancakes :)
