My easy-peasy pancakes

It is almost like the sun is trying to prove a point outside, which makes it next to impossible to even try and venture out. So here I am huddled up indoors jotting down the recipé for my pancakes as promised. Trust me, this unassuming pal is supremely easy going and quite a rockstar when it comes to your tastebuds.

Things you will need: 

  1. All purpose flour/ Maida- 1 ½ cups
  2. Sugar- ¾ cups (use the same cup as above. The sugar can be powdered or not. I leave that to you.)
  3. Eggs- 2
  4. Baking powder (Not soda. Those two are two very different things. Moving forward on the assumption that you are not here for a Chemistry lesson)- 2 teaspoons
  5. Salted butter- 50 grams (melted)
  6. Milk- 1 cup (the same cup. Duh!)
  7. Salt- 1 teaspoon
  8. Vanilla- ½ teaspoon
  9. Honey
  10. An electric beater if you have one. Otherwise a mixing spoon with your arm should be good enough.

How to go about it:

  1. Blend the flour and the baking powder using a sieve. This is to ensure the baking powder is spread out evenly. (“Dry Mixture”)
  2. Next, in a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar, melted butter and vanilla. (“Wet Mixture”). You don’t need to beat it too much. Beating the mixture till it achieves an even consistency and till it reaches a light yellow colour should be good.
  3. Now add the Dry Mixture to the Wet Mixture and and blend it well using the milk. Keep blending till you are sure that there are no lumps.
  4. Place a non-stick pan on your stove. Make sure you don’t over heat the pan. Medium heat is ideal.
  5. Grease the pan with a butter cube.
  6. Scoop up some of our batter (approximately ¼ cup for each pancake) and pour it on to the pan. You do not need to spread it because the idea is not to make a dosa.
  7. Once you start seeing bubbles on the top of the pancake and the edges reach a golden brown colour, flip it over with a spatula.
  8. As both the sides turn evenly golden brown, transfer it to a serving plate. Serve with a generous helping of honey and a dollop of salted butter on top.
  9. Dig in! 🙂

PS: Pardon the legal drafting tendencies that may have crept in (in re the definitions :P).
