Fluffy Pancakes

1 comment:

These American pancakes are light and fluffy and are a great brunch. Once all cooked pile them high, drizzle with some maple syrup and cover liberally in fresh berries. they always go down a storm and can be whipped up in a few moments while the kettle is boiling. 

For 6 large fluffy pancakes you will need...

1tbp baking powder
135g plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
2tbsp caster sugar 
130ml milk (more if needed)
1 large egg beaten 
2 tbsp melted butter 

Start by sifting the flour, baking powder sugar and salt in a mixing bowl. mix the wet ingredients together and add the butter. 

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk with a fork until combined, add a lift more milk in necessary although you do want your batter to be thick and bubbly. 

Heat up your pan with some butter and ladle out your batter mix, you want to make when about the size of a side plate. After a minute or so they will puff up. When you start to see bubbles forming you know it is time to flip. 

Cook the other side for again about 2 minutes. Then then put to one side while you get on with the rest. 

Pile high and serve with lashings of syrup and fresh berries or sugar and lemon, or crispy bacon, depending on how indulgent you are feeling!
