American Pancakes




Today I made American Pancakes for the first time! Why haven't I made them before?! Honestly, I have no idea. In Sweden we make thin pancakes, and those I've eaten many, many times:-) And I love them! But American Pancakes, I've eaten them only once or twice before, but never made them myself. I definitely have to make them again, they are light, fluffy and great when you're in the mood for a lazy weekend breakfast. OK, it's not a weekend today, but I had my day off, so I could enjoy a loooong and lazy breakfast anyway:-)

Top your pancakes with your favourite berries, maple syrup and you're set for a fabulous start of the day.






American Pancakes, serves 4
2 1/2 dl flour (250ml)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 1/2 dl milk (250ml)
2 tbsp melted butter + butter for cooking
1 egg

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. in a separate bowl mix together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.

Pour the milk mixture into flour mixture and beta until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing.

Heat a non-sticking pan and add a knob of butter. When melted, add about two tablespoons of batter for each pancake - add another ladle of batter or more if it fits in your pan.

When the top of the pancake begins to bubble, flip it over and cook until both sides are golden brown. Repeat until you used up all your batter.

Serve immediately with maple syrup and fresh berries.




This is my contribution to Breakfast Ideas Mondays.



Enjoy!

  2. These are beautiful, Johanna. I've never made american pancakes yet. How do they compare to regular pancakes (milk, flour & eggs)? I'm also interested in their breakfast waffles, they look yummy!
