Pancakes are a delicious way to start your day. They are not hard to make at all, and a beginner cook can easily make these from scratch. There is no need to buy the frozen ones, they are not as tasty or as light and fluffy as ones that you make yourself. They do have pancakes mixes that work well and taste good, but you are paying a lot more for the convince of having all the dry ingredients measured out and put into a box for you. You can easily do this yourself at home. You can even mix up a double batch and store some in an airtight container to use another day. Pancakes are not only good in the mornings, they make a quick, tasty and easy dinner as well when you are in the mood for something light. You can also change them up easily with add ins.
You will need the following ingredients, if you want to make extra batter, just double or triple the ingredients:
- 2 cups of flour,
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar,
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder,
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt,
- 2 eggs,
- 1/4 cup of vegetable oil,
- and 1 1/2 cups of milk.
Break the eggs in a bowl, beat them, add the milk and oil. Set that bowl aside. In a different bowl mix all the dry ingredients. Now add the dry ingredients into the liquid, mix it but not too much, it should be a bit lumpy, the more mixing you do, the tougher your pancakes will turn out.
Put a little butter or oil on a griddle or frying pan, let it heat up, pour some batter onto the pan, you can make your pancakes small, like silver dollar ones, or large. Let it cook until you see bubbles on the top and the edges are dry, once you see that flip and cook the other side. The other side doesn't take as long. Serve with butter and maple syrup, or you can sprinkle powdered sugar over them.
If you would like, you can add blueberries to the batter for blueberry pancakes, or chocolate chips for chocolate chip pancakes. You can also mash a banana up in the batter to make yummy banana pancakes. Your family will enjoy the pancakes and you saved some money by making the batter yourself.
