My secret recipe for fluffy, extra delicious, amazing, mouth-watering pancakes
Good morning, beautiful people!
Rise and shine, the weekend is here and I have a little surprise for you, a delicious one <3 Last night I was craving for something sweet and because I try to cook my food in order to control better the portions and calories, I decided to treat myself with some pancakes. After running 5 kilometres and burning 200 calories, I deserved a 400 calories dessert, didn't I? :)) But I don't regret a thing, because the pancakes turned up soo delicious and perfect, that I instantly thought I must share the recipe with you!
Let's get it straight from the beginning, this is not a diet recipe :)) Noo way, it's with sugar, butter and white flour, but it's definitely better than any other calories bomb sweets I could have bought from the supermarket. I like to cook my food because I can control the quality of the ingredients, the portions, I can adjust the recipes accordingly to my tastes and, of course, it's a lot cheaper than eating outside.
Popcorn's secret recipe for fluffy, extra delicious, amazing, mouth-watering pancakes :P
Portions: 15 fat pancakes
Preparation time: 35 delightful minutes
- 4 cups of milk (I used vanilla flavoured soya milk)
- 4 cups of white flour
- 2 small sachets of baking powder
- 3 eggs
- 6 spoons sugar
- 3 tea spoons of melted butter
- a pinch of salt
- vanilla flavour
1. Prepare the batter:
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend it, baby, until the mixture becomes creamy (3-4 minutes). The consistency should be like ...an extra creamy yogurt :)
2. Cook the pancakes
Heat the pan over a moderate heat (on my electric stove I select level 4/9) then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper, or put a small quantity of butter. Slowly pour one ladle of batter in the middle of the pan. Cook until surface of pancake has bubbles, around 1 to 2 minutes. Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside.
3. How to eat the pancakes
Well, I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that, but I it's my pleasure to make you some recommendation: with Nutella and bananas, honey and fruits, maple syrup and cinnamon, fruits yogurt, ice cream, even butter and jam.
*I used a tea cup, with a volume of approx. 250 ml
* If you want to make fewer pancakes, reduce the ingredients by half
* You get fluffier pancakes if you leave the batter to rest for 20 minutes. I usually don't wait, that's why the best pancakes are the last ones :))
* The original american pancakes are a little sticky inside and have a light brown colour. I like to have mine well cooked, until they get the medium brown colour. I don't recommend the dark brown ones :))
