A typical American breakfast usually consists of eggs, sausage, or bacon. An item that also finds its way to the table is the pancake, the mixture of basic cooking ingredients that create a soft fluffy thin cake. This common, yet delicious, breakfast item reminds us of our youth, bringing us back to the days when our parents would cook up a hot stack of fresh pancakes for a Saturday morning breakfast.
- 2 cups of all purpose flour
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2 eggs
Put all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar) in a large bowl. Crack in the 2 eggs, and pour in the milk. Mix the batter until smooth, getting rid of all the chunks. You can also add in your favorite fruits, nuts, or candies into the batter, making it delicious to your heart’s content
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or flat bottomed frying pan over a medium high heat. Pour a medium sized scoop (approx. 1/4 cup) of batter on to the griddle. Let the pancake brown on one side. You will know when to flip the pancake when air bubbles start to appear on the top of the uncooked side. Check out the video of proper pancake flipping.
Serve with your favorite flavor of maple syrup and butter. Don’t be greedy and keep the pancakes for yourself. Share with your friends, family, and/or pet!
