Breakfast Pancakes – American Style
A little treat for a weekend breakfast. We serve this up in various different ways, banana and syrup, bacon and egg, or sometimes even just a knob of butter with a fruit salad at the side.
However you decide to serve up these pancakes they are always a great treat for anyone to have for breakfast. Especially on pancake day!
I only started making these as a little experiment after going away to San Diego and having pancakes for breakfast for the first time ever. I was so excited by what I had tasted and experienced that I wanted to try and recreate it when we got back home. The first few tries were terrible, but I finally managed to get a recipe that works for me and now this is something that I do as a treat once in a while.
- 225g Plain Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar
- 300ml milk
- 2 eggs
- 30g of melted butter slightly cooled
How to Make
Firstly you need a large bowl to mix the ingredients in and a frying pan, make sure you have a plate ready at the side as you will need this to stack the pancakes on once they have been cooked.
- Add all the dry ingredients into the bowl, make a well in the centre.
- beat in the 2 eggs then add the milk and melted butter.
- mix well – I use my electric whisk to make sure there are no lumps.
- alternatively you could add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz, unfortunately I don’t own one so do it the hard way.
- melt some butter in the frying pan
- add a small amount of mixture to the pan and fry on both sides (watch my video for how I do this)
- once cooked put onto a plate to the side and repeat until all mixture has been used.
- serve with toppings of your choice and a nice cup of tea or coffee.
This easy recipe is great for a little treat here and there and I usually make this when we have a big day planned or if we are celebrating something, like a birthday. I love to make this for breakfast on pancake day as they are ever so slightly different to the pancakes I make for desert.
I hope you enjoy making these – and please let me know what toppings you add to your pancakes for breakfast.
Much love x
