Serving Suggestions –
I served them with honey and chopped Alphonso mangoes (trying to eat as much till their season lasts!). You can also serve them with some fruit compote (like this strawberry sauce), or add some whipped cream. You can also add some blueberries or chocolate chips in the batter itself, or add the blueberries after pouring the batter into your pan before flipping them. This recipe works fine with whole-wheat flour or oats flour as well, but the pancakes will be slightly dense.
This recipe gives about 8-10 medium-sized pancakes.
- 190 g all-purpose flour - about 1 1/2 cups
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 300 ml milk - 1 1/4 cup
- 55 g unsalted butter - melted, about 1/4 cup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Keep aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Add milk, melted butter and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- In your dry ingredients bowl, make a well in the centre and slowly pour your liquid mixture. Mix them together gently until no lumps remain.
- Heat a small frying pan (preferably non-stick or cast iron with a flat surface). Rub a little butter on the pan and using a ladle, spoon over about 1/2 cup of batter onto the pan. Cook it for 2-3 minutes on each side on medium heat. You'll know when to turn the pancake when you start seeing bubbles all around the surface of the pancake and the edges seem to be cooked. The pancakes should be golden brown on each side.
- Serve the pancakes stacked upon each other with honey or maple syrup. Top them up with some fruits or fruit compote or some whipped cream.
