Step 1 of the Pancake Recipe
Get your big mixing bowl. The first thing you’ll be doing is mixing around your dry ingredients.
Next, grab your whisk. You’ll need that to do the mixing.
Next, grab a 1 cup measuring cup.
Next, get your flour for this pancake recipe. I used some market pantry flour that I bought at Target.
Measure out one cup. Using a butter knife to smooth out the flour usually works best. Alternatively, you could just scrape the top on the inside of the bag as best you can.
Dump that flour in the bowl and go find your next ingredient, baking powder.
In order to measure out 1 tablespoon of that for this pancake recipe, you’ll need your measuring spoons.
Measure that out. You can use the edge of the top of the container to smooth it out in the spoon.
Dump it into the dry mix.
After that, get your Pyrex for measuring out the milk.
Get the milk.
Pour that into the Pyrex
Measure out 8 ounces twice and then dump each into the dry mix.
Here’s the first one being poured, then the second:
After that, go and find your sugar.
Measure out two tablespoons of that and dump it in.
If you want less sugar in these, you could always just do one tablespoon or even none at all. Having it in there gives a slightly sweet taste to the pancake recipe.
Once that’s in there, grab the whisk to mix the everything around for this pancake recipe.
Mix that around nicely.
It should have a nice consistency and not be very thick.
Grab your salt. You can either throw in a literal pinch of it or measure out an 8/16 teaspoon.
Next, you need to get two little bowls so you can pour the egg whites out.
Then, grab each egg. You’ll be dumping the whites into one of these. You could just skip this step and put the whites into a medium mixing bowl, too.
Crack the egg and then get the whites into one of the bowls. This step can probably be ignored, but I feel like it adds to the overall consistency of the meal. Keep the yolks in the shell.
Pour the eggs into a medium mixing bowl and beat them until they’re white and frothy.
For the next step in the pancake recipe, layer the whites into the large bowl with the liquid mix in it.
Mix that around with the whisk, too. Then, grab the egg shells that have the yolks in them still.
Throw the yolks into the wet mix and whisk them around until mixed in with everything else for this pancake recipe.
At this point, turn on a burner on the stove to medium heat. In my case, I have a griddle built into the stove.
Put something on the griddle to grease it. I used cooking oil, however, if I did it again, I wouldn’t. Cooking oil can get burned on to the parts of the griddle where you don’t do much cooking, like the corners or the sides of it. I recommend that you use butter for this pancake recipe.
Use a brush or something like what I have pictured in order to spread out whatever substance you use to grease it. Next, grab a 1/4 cup measuring cup. You will use one of these to scoop batter on to the griddle.
Scoop the first bit of batter on to the griddle.
No need to overfill it, either. The amount in there pictured made a nice sized pancake.
I probably could have squeezed three pancakes at a time on to mine. Oh well.
Once you start to see bubbles coming through the pancakes, it’ll be time to flip them.
Have your spatula ready to flip them. Be careful not to lose any batter when flipping.
There’s a very bubbly pancake.
Stack them up on a plate and add any extras you want like fruit, chocolate chips, ice cream, etc.
Golden brown. Hope you like this pancake recipe, here’s the notecard version:
|Mix 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tbsp baking powder, 2 tbsp’s white sugar, a pinch of salt and 2 cups (16 FL oz) milk together in a big bowl.|
|Separate eggs – beat the whites in a medium bowl until frothy, then layer them into the big bowl’s wet mix. Whisk that around. Then, dump the yolks in and whisk those in, too.|
|Heat a griddle/pan/skillet to medium heat. Grease it with something, butter works great. Take a 1/4 cup and use it to dump batter on the cooking surface. When you start to see bubbles coming up from the batter, then it’ll be time to flip the pancakes with your spatula. Repeat the process until all batter is done and remember to turn your stove off.|
