Old Fashioned Pancakes

I have made these good old fashioned pancakes as my son Abhi requested to make some. i think he sees his friends getting these in the lunch box in his kindergarten class, as he must have craved and wanted to take in his lunch box too. I got to admit I don't make these very often for breakfast, mostly i do it on Sundays (I used to think making these is a long process than Idli, but I have learnt today it certainly is not). And also I am little reluctant to make these for another reason that don't want to deal with left over batter. But with this recipe, this is perfect and it does last only for one time. So it is a keeper for me. Try it out and let me know.. Njoy!

Easy Pancakes
All Purpose Flour  - 1 1/2 cup
Baking Powder - 3 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 2 Tbsp
Egg - 1
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 3 Tbsp ( melted)

* yields 6 to 8 - medium size pancakes

  1. Take a medium bowl and sift the flour, add baking powder, salt and sugar and mix it well and keep it aside.
  2. Melt the butter in the micro wave, in a medium bowl and let it cool. Add Egg and vanilla extract and whisk it well. add 1 cup of milk and whisk some more.
  3. Now make a well in the flour mix and pour the egg mixture and mix it well with spatula, until it becomes smooth like a batter.
  4. Let it sit for 15 min, so that baking powder works for little fermenting to make the pan cakes fluffy.
  5. Heat the griddle or non-stick pan and add one ladle of  batter. (no need to add butter or oil to the griddle as enough butter has been added to the batter already).  As you see bubbles forming and lift and see it, the other side as browns little bit, flip it and cook it on other side as well.
  6. Do the same until the batter gets finished. 
Look how Fluffy they came...!
Layer these on a serving plate and top with your favorite fruit and pour some syrup on top and serve immediately and Njoy for breakfast! ( I have served these with Honey than syrup.... and it will be your healthy alternative.).

you can pack these in kiddo's lunch box too. this is the idea given by my kindergartner... and it won't go wrong. :-)
