Almost every weekend, either before work or on my day off, I make american style pancakes for us as a treat. I started off using a basic recipe online but changed it a little bit to make it better. This mix should make around 10-12 pancakes. I usually add some chocolate chips to the different ladles of pancake mix, or marshmallows. You can add whatever ingredient you can think of, but make sure the added ingredient is mixed into the pancake mix or covered by the mix, so it doesn't burn on the pan.
1 tablespoon of baking powder
A pinch of salt (I use sea salt)
1 teaspoon of granulated white sugar
2 (medium or large) free range eggs (beaten)
30g irish butter (melted and cooled)
300ml whole milk
225g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon Madagascan vanilla
Some butter to use for pan.
What you need to do:
Melt butter in microwave and leave to cool.
Mix all dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar and baking powder) in a bowl.
Add milk and mix thoroughly.
Add butter and mix.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix.
Heat butter on pan until melted (on a medium heat), and pour a soup ladle almost full of pancake mix onto the pan.
Wait until blisters appear on pancake and then flip.
Repeat this process.
Each pancake will take around 1 minute to make.
To keep pancakes hot while making the whole batch, turn grill on to a low settings and make sure the tray is as low as it can be. Put a plate on the tray and add pancakes to it as you go, to keep them warm. Top with cream or maple syrup, or anything you can think of. I usually use maple syrup and raspberries, which makes a delicious combo on a stack of pancakes.
