I made these on a whim recently. I've been super busy and then horribly ill. I decided I needed something to make me feel better. I saw my bottle of maple syrup in the fridge and thought I would like some pancakes to go with them. I've never made my own pancakes so I looked up a recipe on the internet and voila! Luckily I had some berries to hand (almost always in my fridge currently) and had a very delicious brunch which made me feel miles better. They are really quick and easy to whip up and does not require specialist ingredients or equipment.
Recipe from bbc good food online
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil (I used butter)
- Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the milk and egg and then whisk in the melted butter.
- Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter.
- Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
- Heat a non stick frying pan over medium heat and add a knob of butter.
- When the butter is melted, add a ladle of batter.
- Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown.
- Best served warm.
- Add a knob of butter and drizzle with maple syrup.
- Garnish with berries if desired.
