I am a French Toast kind of girl. Always have been. If I had my choice between French Toast and Pancakes, Pancakes would never see the light of day. Until now. This recipe made me cheat on French Toast. And I’ve cheated over and over again. I’M SORRY FRENCH TOAST!
Ok, have fun making the best homemade pancakes in the world!
These ingredients you combine through a sift (if you don’t have a sift, whisk the dry ingredients together or stir the dry ingredients with a fork- the point is to really incorporate the dry ingredients together):
– 1 1/2 cups of flour (all purpose will do)
– 2 oz. of sugar
-2 teaspoons of baking powder
-pinch of salt
-a shake or two of cinnamon
Make a well with your fist in the dry ingredient mixture and add in the liquid ingredients:
-10 fluid oz. of milk
– 2 eggs
– 2 oz. melted butter
-Few drops of vanilla extract
STIR WITH WHISK
*Now you let this batter stand for 15-20 min. to allow the baking powder to activate.
Heat cast iron skillet (or regular skillet) to medium heat, coat pan in butter, pour batter!
When you start seeing several bubbles starting to pop on the surface it’s time to flip.
add chocolate chips,
almond extract instead of vanilla,
any fruit like blueberries, blackberries, etc!
If you’re smart, you will put a tangy type of jelly on the first pancake in your stack and then put Nutella spread on the top pancake. Seriously, it’s HEAVEN ON A STICK!
