Pancakes anyone? I don't know about you but we all love pancake in the house. Wether you top it with maple syrup, whipped cream, chocolate syrup and fruits, it's perfect for breakfast and snack time.
With all the ready mix pancake that is available in every supermarket everyone can have instant pancake anytime. I remember cooking my first pancake that way, it's so easy just add water, cook and voila! No hassle right? But did you know that making your own pancakes from scratch isn't that hard at all? You might say why bother when you can do it the easy way, but hey it always feels good to learn!
We have a huge pack of all purpose flour which we won from an online promo so I found ways how to make use of it.
I remember my mom cooking pancakes from scratch when I was young so I called her up and asked for the recipe. Google was of course very helpful, I was able to check other recipes though it's pretty much the same hehe.
So here's an easy recipe for a fluffy pancake from scratch!
1 1/2 all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons melted butter/ oil
A dash of vanilla extract (optional)
1. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar).
2. Make a well in the center and pour in milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract
3. Mix until smooth.
4. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan, I use nonstick pan so no need for oil.
5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the pan and cook both sides.
6. Drizzle with desired syrups and topping. Serve and enjoy!
Easy peasy! It's been quite a while now since the last time I bought those pancake mixes because now I can make my own! You should give it a try and let me know how it turned out!
Anyway For our snack earlier, i prepared the traditional Pinoy pancake which is just butter/margarine and a sprinkle of sugar on top. The kids and the husband loved it!
