**Hey guys! I’m reposting this in celebration of National Pancake Day, which is probably not celebrated in New Zealand, but it sounds amazing and I’m gonna go have some pancakes now!**
I have a habit of baking pancakes every Sunday now though. So I thought I’d share my recipe I use with you! It’s written in my notebook, and I don’t remember where it originally came from. It’s foolproof though!
Let’s make sure you have all the ingredients!
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp oil
- 1 banana (or whatever you want to add to the pancakes)
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Make a well in the centre.
Pour in the milk.
Throw in the egg.
Pour in the oil.
Mix it all together until it’s all smooth.
Now you can add the extra optional stuff. So for this one, let’s mash a banana.
Throw it in with the rest.
Let’s mix it all up again.
Now the batter is ready, time to set up the pan. Make sure to add some oil so it doesn’t get sticky.
I use around 1/2 cup of batter for each pancake.
Now it’s pretty self explanatory. Pour it onto the pan. I like to move the pan around so the pancake gets bigger.
The general rule of thumb of when to flip is it to look and see if there’s lots of bubbles. That’s what I do anyway.
Now flip it over nicely. Or try to anyway.
But hey if your rip it, just shove it back together and keep cooking it.
Now keep cooking the rest.
I forgot to take photos of the rest. But this recipe normally makes around six pancakes.
Now add whatever toppings you want. We only have syrup, so I added lots.
That’s all for this Let’s Bake! Be sure to check out the other ones for more food pictures 😛
