Guys! By some amazing fluke, I’ve figured out the perfect pancake recipe (for me, at least) 😀
I use a non-stick pan for the pancakes, and they work every single time, with no sticking.
No more horrible messes, no more wondering when to flip.
I have it done to a fine art.
You put the flame down low so the non-stick surface doesn’t die,
wait until the pancake surface is all bubbly,
and flip with a broad, flat implement.
Beautiful! You don’t even need oil in the pan, or the pancake mix, because it’s a non-stick pan ^_^
The pancake is ready when it begins to steam around the edges (almost imperceptibly).
They’re quick and easy to make on a Saturday morning when you haven’t prepped anything, but want to celebrate the weekend. I use a bread starter I have in my fridge of 50:50 flour to water, but that’s the only thing that’s prepared earlier. The pancakes only take about a minute each side, so a stack is really quick to make.
Saturday Morning Pancakes
- 255g starter (50:50 flour:water*)
- 3 eggs
- 75 mL milk
- 1.5 Tbs brown sugar
- splash of vanilla, to taste
- 1.5 tsp bicarb soda
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
*I don’t know whether this recipe works if the flour and water are added separately, rather than as a starter, but you could always try 🙂
- Mix all ingredients until homogeneous (sift the bicarb soda and baking powder in, because they taste terrible if they clump).
- Use a non-stick pan on a low flame to cook the pancakes.
- When the pancake surface is all bubbly, flip the pancake gently.
- When the pancake starts to steam slightly, the pancake is ready.
- Eat the pancakes.
