So you’ve come home after a hard day, or maybe you just woke up? Either way, you want pancakes and you want them now. Whilst they may be a simple thing to cook up, pancakes are something that very few people really know how to get right and it all starts with the mix. We’ve done our homework and want to show you the best way to make perfect pancakes every time.
Everybody has their own way but we think ours is the best:
So here’s what you’re going to need –
- 135ml milk.
- 135g plain flour.
- 1/2 tablespoon of salt.
- 2 tablespoons of caster sugar.
- 1 large egg.
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter (and some more for cooking later).
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder.
What to do next –
Step 1) Sift the flour, caster sugar, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Step 2) Beat the egg lightly in a separate jug/bowl.
Step 3) Add the milk and butter to the egg and then whisk them together.
Step 4) Combine the two mixtures and beat with a fork until the batter is smooth. You should let the batter stand for at least 5 minutes before cooking it.
Step 5) Do one last check for lumps. Lumpy batter is bad.
