American Pancakes

My niece wanted pancakes for dinner. Though pancakes are mainly known as a breakfast item but one can eat pancakes anytime. I have been following Jamie Oliver a lot these days. So I looked around and tried one of his versions of pancakes. The result was beautiful and tasty.

American Pancakes
Adapted from Jamie Oliver
Makes 4

1. 1 cup all purpose flour
2. 1 cup whole cream milk
3. 1 whole egg
4. 1 tsp baking powder
5. butter
6. a pinch of salt
7. honey

First whisk the flour, milk, egg, baking powder and the salt in a bowl till it all blends together. Now heat (keep medium heat) a pan or skillet and add some butter to it. Pour about 3 table spoons of the mixture on the heated pan or skillet. Tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly. Let the pancake turn golden brown which will take about 3-4 minutes. Add butter on the top and flip the pancake. Cook till it is golden brown on the other side as well.
Serve hot with honey, maple syrup or chocolate sauce. I served with honey on top and some bananas with chocolate sauce poured over the banana.
Pancakes tasted delicious and they had an eggy aroma with a very smooth texture. I used all purpose flour with baking powder, you can use self raising flour instead of all purpose flour and you won't need the baking powder then.

This recipe is definitely the one which you will always use for making pancakes after you have made them once. I kept the batter for about two days in the fridge and it was fine. The only change that I would bring upon next time is I will make them a little thicker.

Have fun eating pancakes. :)
