Homemade Fluffy PancakesFriday, January 10, 2014
The best part about the weekend is sleeping in and making brunch, but nothing says the weekend than making a batch of homemade pancakes. The best part is that this weekend favourite of mine takes less than 20 minutes. How fabulous is that?! In addition, they are light and fluffy, perfect to satisfy anyones craving. No need for Aunt Jemima pancake mix when you can make the real deal from scratch.
1 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Preheat a non stick pan or griddle over medium.
In small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In another medium sized bowl, whisk together milk, butter, and egg. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture but with a wooden spoon, stir the batter until it is smooth. Do not over mix.
Spoon out 2-3 tablespoons of batter onto preheated skillet. Remember to keep them on the smaller side as they are easier to flip. Cook until surface of pancakes are evenly covered with bubbles, usually takes 1 to 2 minutes. Then flip carefully with a spatula and cook until browned on the underside, another minute.
Transfer to plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil in a warm oven. Voila! Serve warm and with lots of maple syrup or desired toppings.
Makes 7-8 pancakes.
