My kids love pancakes. If they could, they would have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A while ago when it was Pancake Tuesday, I made pancakes for dinner, and we had all the trimmings. The kids thought that was ace and have since requested when can we have that again!
I am always on the look out for a yummy pancake recipe. I have tried a few and have even tried putting together my own recipe. I know when the pancakes haven’t turned out as the kids will tell me that they weren’t that good, or they were better than the last pancakes I made. They are very good at telling me yay or nay. I have my own taste testers!
I came upon this recipe while looking on Pinterest and decided to give this one a go. Well, the pancakes turned out great. They were fluffy and soft. They rose quite well and tasted really good. We like our pancakes fluffy and to have a bit of height. The kids said that these were the best pancakes that I have made so far.
- 2 cups plain flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2¼ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
- Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to a large bowl and mix well to combine.
- In a small bowl, beat the eggs and milk together with a whisk. Pour this into the dry ingredients and mix until combined but do not overmix.
- Then slowly pour in the melted butter and gently mix in.
- The batter should still have lumps.
- Heat a pan over medium-low heat and add ⅓ cup batter. Cook pancake 2-3 minutes on first side, until edges look slightly dry and bubbles begin to form on top. Flip the pancake and cook another 1-2 minutes.
- Serve with maple syrup, some fresh fruit or whatever you fancy!
