Jotting down the most basic version of a well liked breakfast so that the girls need not ask me the ingredients and measures each time they make pancakes..
The measurements taken from Internet. Other than the milk quantity mentioned here, all measures and ratios are just fine
Ingredients for 8 pancakes
1 ½ cups (195 grams) all-purpose flour / whole wheat flour,
2 tablespoons sugar (powdered)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt, reduce to 1/4 teaspoon if sensitive to salt or using salted butter
1 ¼ cups (295 ml) milk....I used 195ml or till the batter was of flowing consistency
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, plus more for skillet
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and the salt in a medium bowl.
Warm milk until lukewarm.
Whisk milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract..
Mix dry and wet ingredients separately at first then combine just before cooking. When we are ready to cook, we combine the two mixes with a fork or whisk.
Heat a large pan (mine has 3 circular grooves perfect for pancakes, crepes) over medium heat. The pan is ready if when you splatter a little water onto the pan surface, the water dances around the pan and eventually evaporates.
Lightly brush skillet with melted butter.
Pour ladle full of batter and cook till browned and crispy around the edges. Flip and cook the other side
Serve with toppings of your choice...chocolate syrup, honey, maple syrup, liquid jaggery, cream etc
