Pancakes

Okay so on popular demand, pancakes, the way I make them...

So to make 8 pancakes, for four hungry people ...

.. this is what you need:

3 cups flour
- this is the cup size:

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
few drops of vanilla essence or 1 tsp vanilla sugar
enough milk to make the batter. I used almost 500 ml
butter for frying

.. and this is what you should do:

1- sieve the flour with the baking powder, add sugar and break in the eggs



2- whisk together carefully. At first you will have a tough looking dry batter. Keep on adding milk slowly to make a thin enough batter, like in the pics





3- heat some butter in a pan, put a spoonful of the batter in and turn the pan to spread it around




4- as soon as you see small air bubbles on top, turn it over. That means its done from the lower side. The let it fry for a few minutes more too cook the other side too



5- pile up and serve with whatever u want :)



You can also make them with water, that will give you lighter pancakes, and of course, you can make them bigger and thinner or smaller and thicker - entirely up to your taste.
