Total time: 
Serves: 5 pancakes
  • All-purpose flour – 1 cup (130 gms)
  • Baking powder – 1 & ½ tsp
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Granulated white sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Egg – 1, large
  • Milk – 1 cup (240 ml)
  • Melted unsalted butter – 2 tbsp (28 gms)
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. In another bowl, mix together egg, milk and melted butter.
  3. Now make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the mixture of wet ingredients. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon stir everything until just combined. Do not worry if the batter has some lumps. Overmixing the batter may result in tough pancakes.
  4. Heat a frying pan on medium high heat until it is quite hot. Alternatively you can use an electric griddle setting the temperature at 180 C or 350 F.
  5. Using a pastry brush or paper towel, lightly brush the cooking surface with oil or melted butter. Now pour about ¼ cup of pancake batter on the hot pan and let the batter spread on its own. I used my measuring cup of size ¼ and it produced 5 decent sized pancakes as you see in the pictures.
  6. Let the pancake sit for 3 to 4 minutes on medium-high heat until bubble forms on top and the bottom turns golden brown. Then flip it over and cook the other side for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Repeat the process till you use up the whole batter but don’t forget to brush the pan/griddle with oil or butter before adding the batter next time.
  8. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup or seasonal fruits.
