Welcome to the weekend.
For the first time in a long time I have an entire weekend off. So I decided to make a special breakfast this morning.
Jack loves pancakes, I mean, who doesn’t?
He especially likes the little scotch pancakes, or as he calls them, American pancakes. Because you always see them in films being eaten for breakfast.
They are super easy to make and I can make 3 in my pan in one go, as they are only about the same size of dvd, or even smaller.
Make sure you use a really good pan, one with a good non stick coating makes life so much easier, and you will need very little oil to prevent them sticking.
Heres what you are going to need
- 2 cups flour
- ⅓ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ Tablespoons. baking powder
- 1 egg
- 2 cups milk
- 2 Tablespoons butter (room temp)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
When it comes to cup measurement, the cup I used is an old teacup, the kind you put with a saucer. It is not nearly as big as a mug or drinking cup.
So first you are going to want to mix together all of your dry ingredients together in a bowl. Once these are nicely mixed together, you can start to add your milk, egg, butter and vanilla. Whisk with a balloon whisk until thick and smooth.
Once the batter is ready, you need to heat up your pan and put a drop of oil or butter in and make sure the whole base is covered.
I used a soup ladle to put my batter into the pan, i only filled each spoon full less then half way otherwise the pancakes touched each other too much.
Allow to cook on both sides until they are golden and firm.
Then serve hot, with your own choice of topping.
