Recipe – Fluffy Pancakes
I love to eat waffles and pancakes, but I never like doing it. I used to tell my mother that I want to grow up working in a bakery, making waffles everyday. But when I try making pancakes at home, I gave up the idea.
This is not the first time I make pancake at home. But I lost the previous recipes and pictures, and I very much wanted to keep a pancake recipe in the blog, so I did it again last week. It’s wasn’t a planned pancake breakfast, I woke up one day, opened Instagram and saw my foodie friends having pancakes. So I decided to do a quick one at home.
Honestly, it wasn’t that quick when I have to take pictures while mixing the batter. And the pan frying part is really a pain in the a**. While controlling the fire, I have to pour the batter and holding my camera on the other hand. Man, I can barely coordinate my movements and my first few pancakes were burnt. It got better after a few tries but the shape wasn’t round. At the end of cooking all the pancakes, I was sweating and my camera smells of pancake. I guess it’s a happy problem. haha!
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- cooking spray
- Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes.
- Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
- Whisk egg and butter into the milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side. Serve
- You can pair it with banana, strawberries, blueberries or cream.
You can use buttermilk to replace milk and butter. I wanted to use the leftover buttermilk I had from baking muffins, but I realised it expired. You can also add blueberries into the pancake. I love it especially when the blueberries “burst” and it gives a nice flavour. Sometimes, I add bananas and whipped cream. Enjoy your breakfast!
