Pancakes are the ultimate comfort breakfast when served with warm and real maple syrup. It is the best way to wake up on a Saturday morning. I use a cast iron griddle to make pancakes. There are few tricks to follow while making pancakes. A good griddle is important. The griddle must sizzle when you sprinkle some water on it. Also cook the pancakes on medium heat. If the griddle is too hot, the pancakes will brown quickly and the center will be uncooked.
The ingredients below makes 6 pancakes and 6-8 silver dollar pancakes.
- All purpose flour – 1 cup
- Sugar – 2 tbsp
- Baking powder – 2 tsps
- Salt – 1/2 tsp
- Unsalted butter – 2 tbsps, melted
- Egg – 1
- Milk – 1 cup
- Mix flour,sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
- Add the egg and whisk till just combined.
- Add butter and little milk to the flour mixture. Keep mixing slowly and incorporate all the milk into the batter.
- The batter should have small lumps in it.
- Grease a griddle with butter or oil.
- Heat the greased griddle and make sure that it is hot ( sprinkle water on the griddle and the water should sizzle).
- Pour the batter using a ladle onto the griddle.
- It will spread on its own.
- You will notice small bubbles on the pancake as it cooks.
- When the edges of the pancake is a little dry, flip the pancake and let it cook until they are light brown in the bottom.
- Serve hot with warm maple syrup.
