How to make pancakes
Hi and Welcome!
This is a super easy pancakes recipe that I put together and make my pancakes with. You will find the list of tools and ingredients I used, with a step-by-step walkthrough on how to prepare and cook your pancakes. Enjoy.
P.S. I am not a professional cook, but actually quite the casual newbie cook. Nonetheless, I succeeded and so will you. Yay 😀
What you need for this recipe:
Large Bowl: to mix all the ingredients
Medium Bowl: for the egg mix
Sieve: to sift the dry ingredients
Measuring Cups: for the milk
Teaspoon: for the sugar and salt
Tablespoon: for the butter
Whisk: for the egg mix
Soft Spatula: to mix the batter and scrape it off the bowl
Frying Pan: to cook the pancakes
Turning Spatula: to turn the pancakes while cooking
All Purpose Flour: 1 1/2 cups (190g)
Baking Powder: 3 1/2 teaspoons (10g)
Sugar: 1 tablespoon (10g) – Note: I used brown cane sugar, although white sugar is usually used
Salt: 1 teaspoon (6g) – Note: I used Himalayan salt, although normal salt is usually used
Egg: 1 – Note: at room temperature
Milk: 1 1/4 cups (295ml) – Note: at room temperature
Unsalted Butter: 3 tablespoons (45g)
Preparation: approx. 5-7min.
Cooking: approx. 36min. – Note: this is the cooking time for 12 pancakes
Cooking per Pancake: approx. 3min.
Pancakes: 12 – Note: these are pancakes with a 4 inch (10-11cm) diameter
People: 4 (3 pancakes each)
Step 1: in the large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar until evenly mixed
Step 2: in the medium bowl, beat the egg, add the molten butter and gently blend, then add the milk and again blend it in gently – Note: the gentle blending is to prevent over-beating the egg, resulting in fluffier pancakes 😀
Step 3: in the large bowl with the flour mix, make a crater in the center to pour in the egg mix – Note: this helps to better mix all the ingredients
Step 4: gently mix all the ingredients together until you have a smooth and homogenous batter – Tip: if you ever make too much pancake batter, don’t worry, you can freeze it for another time 😉
Step 1: heat the frying pan at medium heat, with 1/2 teaspoon of butter
Step 2: for each pancake, pour a 1/4 cup (59ml) of batter into the frying pan – Tip: this is where the optional ladle comes in handy
Step 3: when it starts bubbling on the top side (approx. 2min.) and it is golden-brown on the bottom side, it is ready to be flipped
Step 4: repeat this process for the remaining pancakes 🙂 – Tip: occasionally, wipe the used butter off the frying pan and add another 1/2 teaspoon of fresh butter
Your pancakes: are now ready to be topped and eaten as you desire. You can try out sweet and salty toppings, there is no limit to your creativity. 😉
For this recipe: I topped the pancakes with a slice of butter and some maple syrup
Author’s Note: they are super delicious and so fluffy. 😀
