Over the weekend I wanted to whip up something quick. I decided to make some simple pancakes for brunch. If you have made pancakes before, you know how simple it is to make them. If you have never made pancakes from scratch, here is a very basic recipe using ingredients you already have at home.
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons melted butter(optional)
Mix together flour, baking powder, and salt in a big bowl or pan.
In a separate bowl, combine egg and milk
Add egg and milk to flour mixture, stirring only until smooth.
Stir in melted butter.
Cook on a hot, greased griddle or a flat frying pan, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake. If you are using a large frying pan, you can make bigger pancakes so it will take less time, using 1/2 cup of batter. I usually just pour until batter looks about the size of the pancake I want. Cook until brown on one side and around edge, you'll see air bubbles rising through the batter as it cooks. Turn and brown the other side.
If it doesn't turn out well the first time, you just need to adjust the heat and cooking time. Cooking is an art, so have fun.
This recipe for pancakes serves 4. You can add any toppings you like, peanut butter, jam, syrup, fruits, concentrate milk, etc...
