Who needs Pancakes recipe?


Our family loves Pancakes. Perhaps it's the warmth of every fresh made pancake sitting on your plate. Or perhaps it's the wonder of the Nutella that melts slowly on your hot pancake. Either way, it's the simplest of all desserts to make and about everyone enjoys eating them. Almost every culture has a pancake recipe. From the Chinese savoury pancakes, the Indian Roti Prata (Canai) to the English Pancakes (served with Lemon Juice and Sugar) and of course the famous French crepes! Here's the basic Sweet Pancakes recipe to start your day with:

Sweet Pancakes
Makes 8 - 10
Ingredients:
125 g Flour
Pinch of Salt
2 tbsp Sugar
1 Egg
300 ml Milk
25 g Butter, melted

Method:
(1) Place the Flour, Sugar and Salt in a mixing bowl.
(2) Beat in Egg into dry mixture.
(3) Stream in Milk slowly and beat till throughly mixed.
(4) Stir in Butter.
(5) On a medium saucepan (preferably non stick), pour in about 1/2 tbsp of oil (or butter).
(6) Using a ladle, pour a nice ladle of pancake mixture into the saucepan till it fills up the pan to the edges. Brown on both sides and serve.

Notes:
  • Make sure you do not burn the pancake. You will know if the other side is cooked when your mixture drys up.
  • Be careful when using Butter to fry the pancakes as it has a lower smoking point and burns easily.
  • You can leave the mixture to stand for 30 minutes before frying to develop a better flavour.
  • You can brown the pancake on only one side. Spread nutella on the inner side and fold it in half to serve.
  • For leftover pancakes, simply wrap them in Cling film and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Suggested servings: Nutella, Lemon Juice & Sugar, Chocolate Sauce or Maple Syrup.
Happy frying!
