Pancakes

Last day of the school holidays, and the boys decided they wanted pancakes for breakfast. Personally, I like to use either pure butter, macadamia nut oil or coconut oil to grease the pan.

Don't go and buy the pre-packaged pancake mixes which are full of anti-caking agents, thickeners and other additives.  Make up a batch of the dried ingredients listed below and store it in your pantry.  When you want to make pancakes, simple add the butter, egg, milk and buttermilk.



Ingredients:
75g butter
270g plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
90g caster sugar
1 egg
300g  milk
150g buttermilk
butter or oil, for greasing pan
pure maple syrup and fresh fruit, to serve

Method:
  1. Place butter into TM bowl and melt for 2 minutes/50 degrees/speed 3.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. Mix for 30 seconds/speed 5.
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with butter or oil. Pour 1/3 cup of the mixture at a time into the pan and cook until bubbles form on the surface. Turn over and cook until golden.
  4. Serve in small stacks with maple syrup and fresh fruit.
Serves 4

    1. Glad you enjoyed them! Out of interest, this is what McDonald's hotcakes consist of: Water, Wheat Flour, Whey Powder, Maize Flour, Vegetable Oil (Canola), Sugar, Raising Agents (341, 500, 541), Dextrose, Emulsifiers (471, 481),Egg, Salt, Thickener (415 contains Wheat).
      AND the syrup is made from: Corn Syrup, Sugar, Water, Flavour, Preservative (202), Colour (150d). Sounds like something made in a lab.
