How to make American pancakes

loading...

Make light and fluffy American-style pancakes for a mouthwatering brunch or dessert.

Points to remember

  • Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt and make a well in the centre.
  • Beat the egg and milk together and whisk into the dry mixture to make a thick smooth batter.
  • Beat in the melted butter and add any flavourings like blueberries or vanilla extract.
  • Heat a knob of butter and a little oil on a medium heat until foaming.
  • Drop a large tablespoon of batter into the pan and cook for about 3 minutes. Small bubbles will appear on the surface of each pancake. Turn over and continue cooking until golden, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve with extra fruit, syrup or whipped cream.
