INTRODUCTION I am going to talk about how to make homemade pancakes. I chose this topic because my children love pancakes and making pancakes is a very easy and simple process.
I NGREDIENTS I will make about 8 10-inch pancakes for 4 people. You may change the amounts of ingredients according to the number of people you wish to serve. 2 cups plain or all-purpose flour 2 eggs 1 1/2 cups (350ml) of milk 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons butter/Vegetable oil 5 tablespoons sugar (optional)
S TEP 1 Crack eggs into a bowl and beat until fluffy. Add omit baking soda if using self-raising flour, and milk. Do not stir mixture at this point.
S TEP 2 Melt the butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Make sure that it's completely melted; about a minute is sufficient.
S TEP 3 Add the batter and the milk to the mix. Stir gently, leaving some small clumps of dry ingredients in the batter. Do not blend until completely smooth. If your batter is smooth, your pancakes will be tough and flat as opposed to fluffy.
S TEP 4 Heat your frying pan to a medium low flame. If you have an initial "pancake" setting on your stove, use that. Be sure to use non-stick spray, or a pat of butter so the pancakes won't stick.
S TEP 5 Sprinkle a few flecks of water onto your pan. If it 'dances', or jumps from the pan with a sizzle, the pan is ready for the batter.
S TEP 6 Pour about 3 tablespoons to 1/4 cup batter from the tip of a large spoon or from a pitcher onto the hot griddle or your greased frying pan. The amount you pour will decide the final size of your pancakes. It is better to begin with less batter, and then slowly pour more batter onto the pan to increase the pancake size.
S TEP 7 Cook for about two minutes or until the pancake is golden. You should see bubbles form and then pop around the edges. When the bubbles at the edge of the batter pop and a hole is left that does not immediately close up, flip the cake gently.
S TEP 8 Cook the other side until golden and remove. Want a deeper colour? Repeat the steps for another thirty seconds per side until the pancake is done enough for your tastes.
S TEP 9 Enjoy ! Try adding more exciting flavours. The varieties are endless. These are the most delectable pancakes you will ever taste.
