Picture
1 cup (130 grams) all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powde


1/4 teaspoon salt


2 tablespoons (28 grams) granulated white sugar


1 large egg, lightly beaten


1 cup (240 ml) milk


2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, melted


Plus extra melted butter for greasing the pan.


Pancake Recipe: In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.  In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, milk, and melted butter. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, all at once, and stir or whisk just until combined. The batter should have some small lumps. Make sure you do not over mix the batter or the pancakes will be tough. Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium high heat until a few sprinkles of water dropped on the pan or griddle splatter. Using a pastry brush, brush the pan with a little melted butter.

Using a small ladle or scoop, pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the pan, spacing the pancakes a few inches from each other. When the bottoms of the pancakes are brown and bubbles start to appear on the top surfaces of the pancakes (2-3 minutes), turn over. Cook until lightly browned (about 1-2 minutes).

Repeat with remaining batter, brushing the pan with melted butter between batches.

Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup.

Makes about 8 - 3-inch (7.5 cm) pancakes.  Serves 3-4 people.

For Blueberry Pancakes: Sprinkle fresh blueberries on the tops of the pancakes just as bubbles start to appear on the top surface of the frying batter. Preparation time 15 minute
