The Perfect Pancake
I’ve never understood why people bought pancake mix in a box. It really is the simplest recipe ever and the texture of homemade pancakes is so much better than the boxed stuff. Give this recipe a try and I promise you’ll never buy the boxed stuff again.
2tbsp baking powder
2 1/2c milk
squeeze of lemon juice
Put the flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl and stir with a whisk.
In a separate medium sized bowl crack the eggs and stir with the whisk. Now add the milk and the lemon juice to the eggs and whisk again. The lemon juice helps activate the baking powder so you get light fluffy pancakes every time!
Pour the milk and eggs mixture over the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon. JUST MIX UNTIL EVERYTHING LOOKS WET. It is okay for it to be lumpy still.
Now rub a little butter in your pan and place it on the stove (make sure the handle is in) Turn the heat to medium.
Put one ice cream scooper of pancake batter in the pan and then a second one if you have room beside the fist one.
When you see little bubbles pop on the top of the pancake you know its time to flip it. Flip the pancake.
When the edges of the pancake look cooked take your pancakes out of the pan and place on a plate. Keep adding pancakes to the pan in the same way until you have no batter left.
Congratulations! You just made delicious pancakes.
*TIP-Why not try making snowman pancakes this Christmas? Just pour batter in a snowman shape and decorate with icing sugar, raisons, chocolate chips ect.
TIP- This recipe is easily made gluten free by simply swapping out the flour with a gluten free version such as Robin Hood or my favourite flour blend. You can also make this vegan easily by using an egg replacer.
