I just 'had' to make pancakes again. It was all Chris' fault. Chris is one of my son's friends who spent the night over and when he woke up he asked if I we wanted 'him' to make pancakes for breakfast. Soon he understood that in a home with 'Mom Amelia' this is not a possibility for "I am the one who must feed the children" no matter how old they are. And the Finnish friends who were still with us had a chance to eat more pancakes. They seemed happy.
This time I used brown sugar. The taste is not much different than the regular pancake.
What Yo Need:
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 cups milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 eggs lightly beaten with a whisk or fork
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
What To Do:
Gather your ingredients.
Melt the sugar and butter in the microwave.
Stir well and set aside.
In a large bowl sift together the flour, salt and baking powder.
Make a hole in the middle and put the milk, eggs, vanilla and melted butter with sugar.
Whisk until well blended.
Using a paper towel spread 1 teaspoon oil at the bottom of a frying pan.
Turn the heat to medium.
Wait half a minute for the pan to heat and put 1/4 cup batter on the pan with a ladle.
The batter will begin to form bubbles.
When the sides are slightly dry turn the pancake using a wide spatula.
Wait until the other side browns.
Check if the pancake is cooked inside by making a little cut in the middle and pressing the side to see if the batter runs out.
Then dress your pancake with anything you like.
How about kiwi and whipped cream?
