Basic Pancake Recipe {from Scratch}

We are not into baking lately. 
We have lots of baking supplies but too tired to do some baking {or in my case, asking the hubby to do some baking}. 
But I have been craving for a pancake lately since we always miss the morning visit to one of the fast food chains here because there are lots of things to do on a Saturday. 
So we made some pancake from scratch...err, from what we have in the kitchen. 
We used a basic recipe for this delicious pancake:

(for 6-8 people)

You will need the following:

1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 and a half teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
3 tablespoon sugar (or more, if you do not have honey)
2 eggs
3 tablespoon vegetable oil or butter (we used virgin olive oil)


1. Mix all dry ingredients. 
Then add milk, egg and oil (or butter, if you prefer). 
Mix until smooth.
2. Heat an frying pan on medium heat (add very small amount of oil). 
Turn to low heat when oil is hot enough (on my weird way, test the oil temperature by putting the hand over the pan five inches high, if you can feel heat then it is ready). 
Scoop around 1/4 cup of batter on the pan. turn when sides are firm but not burnt (this is the indication one side is already cooked). 

Serve hot. 

If only there is a honey or maple syrup...

  1. Oh my sister used to make this when we were kids! Sure was yummy. Yummier than the pre-mixed kind I buy from the supermarket these days, anyway :D
