There is a coffee place in my area that serves american pancake with maple sirup; they are to die for! This summer a number of food bloggers are posting pancake pictures, so I thought let’s do it as well :-).
I meet with my best friend to try out a random recipe we found on google (bbc.co.uk, to be precise) and here it is:
12 pancakes (⌀ 10 cm – 12 cm)
- 390 g plain flour
- 3 teaspoon (tsp) baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 6 tablespoon (tbsp) caster sugar
- 390 ml whole milk
- 3 large eggs
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- add in one large bowl: flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
- in another bowl whisk: milk and egg; add melted butter and whisk again
- pour milk mixture into the flour bowl and beat until you have a smooth batter
- let the batter stand for a few minutes (I forgot this step though 🙂 )
- heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat and add a bit butter
- add a ladle of batter and wait till the top of the batter begins to bubble, then turn over ( pancake shall rise to about 1 cm thick)
- serve warm with what ever you feel like. We had pancakes with maple sirup, with fruits (strawberry, apple and melon) and fried Nuremberg sausage.
The batter was quite thick. I believe it should be so the dough is not runny in the pan, however I find them a bit dry, therefore I added around 15 ml sparkle water.
The recipe itself is alright. Measurements are quite alright, however I would try out a different recipe another time. Still need to experiment with the batter’s consistency though. Any recommendations are welcome 🙂
