Delicious Vanilla Pancakes

Cheesy photo from whatscookingamerica.net
  • All purpose flour
  • Milk
  • An egg
  • Vanilla essence
  • Frying pans
  • Large jug (or just a bowl)
  • Spatula
  • Whisk
  • Ladle (optional)
  1. Mix batter
    1. Put some flour in a large jug/bowl- quantity: about half the amount of batter you want. Consider hunger levels now
    2. Add an egg and mash it to oblivion with the whisk so the whisk goes all clumpy
    3. Add milk GRADUALLY (whisking in between doses) until the batter has the same thickness as delicious double cream
    4. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract/essence
  2. Cook
    1. Put 1 dessert spoon of oil in the pan and get it HOT- Should shimmer like Edward Cullen
    2. Pour a little of the batter in the pan and immediately start swirling it around- if you used the jug, you don't have to use a ladle for this part
    3. Flip pancake when you see tiny bubbles in the middle/when the edges start crisping
  • Make sure there's oil in the pan for each pancake, and that the oil is super hot, or the pancake will stick and burn and you will be a disappointment to us all
  • Add fancy stuff- rasins, chopped apples and chocolate chips all work well

    1. Pancakes. Add less milk if you like them thicker, or more milk for crepes.

  4. So I tend to do 2 tablespoons of flour to 1 egg. And then add in a tiny bit of milk. It makes for 'healthier' pancakes (so says my mom, but don't trust that!) I find that a more egg-y batter does taste better, though. And then I add spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, lemon zest, etc) and sometimes add in choco chips, raspberries, or apple slices.

    BUT, that all said, I will try out your pancakes tomorrow morning :D
