I’m pretty sure that every family has its own pancake’s recipe. But have you been satisfied with yours? Still looking for a wonderful, fluffy, and thick pancakes like the shop-bought ones? Well…your quest ends here! 😀 Café-style american pancakes will be served straight from your own kitchen!
Pardon me for not posting any photos of these beautiful pancakes. I’m always late to capture those pancakes as husband had already eaten them all 😀 I’ll post some photos if I make a batch for brekkie.
Note: I’ve updated this post with yesterday’s photo of our breakfast pancakes. 😀
- 400 ml buttermilk. If you only have regular milk, you can substitute the buttermilk with this mixture: Add 2 Tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar to your milk. Stir, and let it stands for about 15 minutes.
- 3 eggs, separate the whites and the yolks
- 250 gr plain flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 30 gr sugar
- 50 gr unsalted butter, melted
How to make your beautiful pancakes
- Mix flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Sift this mixture.
- Separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another.
- Beat the yolks until you get a pale batter.
- Add the buttermilk and baking soda into the yolks, then fold them.
- Add the sifted flour mixture and the sugar to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter.
- Whisk the whites until they form stiff peaks, and fold them gently into the batter.
- Add the melted butter into the batter, and fold them until everything is combined.
- Let the batter stands for half an hour before it’s ready to use!
- Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes. Wait until the top forms bubbles, then flip the pancake over. Continue frying until both sides are golden as desired.
Enjoy while they’re still warm. Call me old-fashioned, but I have to have a real maple syrup pour over my pancakes. Nothing can beat it!
