|All-purpose flour||2 cups|
|Baking powder||1 tablespoon|
|Butter||2 tablespoons, melted|
1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Set aside.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, whisking constantly until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps.
3. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Grease the pan with butter or cooking spray. Spoon the batter into the pan, using ¼ cup for each pancake. Cook until the pancakes are golden brown and bubbly on the surface, about 2 minutes.
4. Flip the pancakes and cook until the other side is golden brown, about 2 minutes more. Serve with butter, syrup, or your favorite topping.
Yield: 8 pancakes
Tips for Perfect Pancakes:
Don’t overmix the batter. If the batter is too lumpy, try using a blender or food processor to get it smooth. Just be careful not to overmix it, as this can cause the pancakes to be tough.
Let the batter rest for at least 10 minutes before cooking. This allows the ingredients to combine and gives the pancakes a better texture.
Don’t over-flip the pancakes. Flip them only once, as flipping them too many times can make them tough.
The first pancake is usually a dud, so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t turn out perfect. The second one should be much better.
Making the perfect pancakes doesn’t have to be a challenge. With this easy and foolproof recipe, you’ll be sure to get fluffy, light, and delicious pancakes every time. So don’t be afraid to get creative and try out different toppings and flavor combinations. And remember, if you can’t flip it, don’t fret – just top it!
