A few weeks ago I was having a converation with a friend's sister, she recently moved into her first place and having to cook for herself for the first time. She mentioned she was bored with take out and wished she could at least make pancakes. The conversation ended with her asking me to send her some of my favorite easy recipes. This pancake recipe was the first one I sent to her. This is one of the first things I learned how to make; I have tried and created different pancake recipes since that first one, but I always come back to this one.
It is simple, fluffy and easy to make and my friend's sister has been whipping this up every weekend since I sent it to her.
What you need:
- 1 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup half and half
- butter, for cooking
In a mixing bowl, combine flour, egg, baking powder, sugar and milk and whisk. It is ok if your batter has lumps, the tiny lumps make the pancake fluffy. Let the batter rest for five to ten minutes.
Heat the frying pan on medium-low heat. Brush some butter on the heated pan. Using a one-third measuring cup, scoop batter into the pan. Cook until tiny bubble start to form on top, then flip over and cook for another minute or two.
I like to top with honey, cinnamon sugar or spread nutella or peanut butter on top. You can also serve with yogurt and fruit.
Serves 2 / 30 minutes
