Good Old Pancakes

Decided to make pancakes for breakfast this morning, so here is the recipe I am going to use;

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g butter, melted, cooled
  • extra melted butter, for cooking

Sift flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Stir in sugar.

Whisk milk, eggs and butter together. Add to flour mixture. Use a wooden spoon to mix until well combined. Cover and stand batter for 15 minutes.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Brush pan with a little extra butter. Pour 1/3 cup of batter into pan and use a spoon to spread batter out to a 12cm (diameter) circle. Reduce heat to low. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles start to appear on surface. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes, or until cooked through. Wrap pancake in a clean tea towel to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing pan in between pancakes.

I like to serve them with Maple *flavoured* syrup, as I cannot afford real maple syrup 🙂
