Pancakes make a really great breakfast on a sunday morning, and really don’t take very long at all to make. Served with a hot cup of coffee, a big lump of butter and half a bucket of maple syrup they may not make the healthiest meal but it’s certainly one of my favourites!
– 130g Plain Flour (1 cup)
– 1 tbsp Sugar
– 3 tsps Baking Powder
– 0.5 tsps Salt
– 1 Egg
– 0.6 decilitres Oil
– 2.4 decilitres Milk
- First, put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, oil and milk in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Transfer to a suitably sized jug and place a frying pan on a hot stove with a couple of teaspons of extra oil in the pan.
- When the oil is hot, pour the batter into the pan in circles, about 7cm across. Bubbles will rise to the surface of the batter and break. When the top of the batter is bubbly and has solidified a little, flip over and fry on the other side for about 20 seconds. Remove the pancakes from the pan and repeat until all the batter is used up. You can either serve immediately or keep them warm in a tin covered with foil in the oven around 100 degrees Celsius.
- Once all pancakes are ready, serve in a stack on a plate. The ingredients above should be sufficient for around 12 pancakes, so two servings of 6 each. Serve with butter and maple syrup, if you have it available, or jam, honey, or even with scrambled eggs and bacon and so forth.
