Me, and my love for Pancakes. Phew. We go wayyyyy back.
Pancakes are by far, one of the best things to have for breakfast in the morning. I mean, picture this; a hot, steamy, fresh off the griddle 5 stacks of Pancakes, topped with Butter and Maple Syrup.
You grab your fork and knife, and proceed to make a cut from the center towards the edges, and a big mouthful of those goes right into your mouth. BAM. That’s heaven right there.
Anyway, this recipe is perfection. I found it by accident, give it a tweak to adjust with our Eastern taste palate, and I’m going to show you how to make it.
Here’s my version of PANCAKES.
For 8 Serving, you will need;
|Yea, not all Ingredients are pictured here.|
- 1 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
- 3 ½ Teaspoons Baking Powder
- ¼ Teaspoon Salt
- 1 ½ Tablespoon Sugar
- 1 ¼ Cups Milk
- 1 Egg
- 3 Tablespoons Butter, Melted
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Ready? Here We Go!
Step 1 – Mix all of the Dry Ingredients (Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, Sugar), and use a fine sieve/strainer to sift everything, so there will be NO lumps. Lumps in the finished batter? Yes yes yes. Lumps in the beginning? NO NO NO. Anyway, Set aside after.
|The Sifter, straight out of American Pie movie. Wait. That's Stifler.|
Step 2 – Melt the Butter using anything you have. I’m just so lazy that I resorted to the microwave. Let cool for a moment. Get your Milk, and combine it with the already-cold-to-handle melted Butter. You’re probably wondered when we will put the eggs in. Guess what? AIN’T NOW. Oh yeah, don’t forget to add your Vanilla Extract in at this point!

|Whoops, too much!|
Step 3 – Get a large bowl and mix the Dry Ingredients with the Wet. Add the wet ingredient gradually to avoid creating too many lumps. Once all ingredients are combined, crack your Eggs and mix to combine. Don’t mix too much, just enough that there is no more visible flour left.
Step 4 – Get a non-stick pan, set the heat to MEDIUM. You don’t want to go too high and risk burning the pancakes!. Once the pan is hot, add the batter slowly, and set the timer to cook the first side for 1 to 1.5 minutes depending on the size of your pancakes. I cook mine for 1 minute exactly on each side. Once you see bubbles popping, take a peek underneath, and if it’s nicely brown, you’re ready to flip.
|Bubbles? That's your cue!|
Step 5 – Give it a flip and cook the other side for another 1 minute.
|HEY MY BABIES!|
Step 6 – Repeat
Step 7 – Serve
Serve this baby with anything you want. Impress your loved ones.
