American Pancakes


And if you are not keen on pancakes crepe style, how about American pancakes?

Ingredients:

225 gram(s) (8oz) plain flour
1 tablespoon(s) baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon(s) white sugar
2 large egg(s) (beaten)
30 gram(s) (1oz) butter (melted and cooled)
300 ml (10.53 fl oz) milk

Method:

The easiest way to make these is to put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz. But if you do mix up the batter by hand in a bowl, make a well in the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar, beat in the eggs, melted butter and milk, and transfer to a jug: it's much easier to pour the batter into the pan than to spoon it.
Heat a smooth griddle or pan on the stove.

When you cook the pancakes, all you need to remember is that when the upper side of the pancake is blistering and bubbling it's time to cook the second side, and this needs only about 1 minute, if that.
I get about 16 silver-dollar-sized pancakes out of this.
