Perfect Pancakes!

Perfect Pancakes!

2c               flour

2tbsp          baking powder

1/2tsp         salt

2                 eggs

2 1/2c         milk

a 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 to the eggs and whisk again.


Pour the milk and eggs mixture over the flour mixture. Now add your squeeze of lemon. 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 on your pan is turned in. That way if you have a little brother or sister they won't be able to reach up and grab the handle.


 Turn the heat to medium.


Use an ice-cream scoop to scoop out the batter. That way every pancake will be the same size. 


Put one ice cream scoop of pancake batter in the pan. 


When you see little bubbles pop on the top of the pancake you know its time to flip it. Flip the pancake.


Once the edges of the pancake look cooked, take your pancakes out of the pan and place on a plate. Keep adding pancake batter to the pan the same way until you have no batter left.


Congratulations! You just made delicious pancakes.
