Old fashioned pancakes

This buttery pancake recipe makes light and fluffy pancakes. I prefer my pancakes to be light and fluffy so I really love this recipe. To give the pancakes a lighter and fluffier texture, the key point is to use pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour.

Old fashioned pancakes

      250 cc pastry flour
     1 teaspoon baking powder
     ½ teaspoon baking soda
     1 tablespoon soft brown sugar
     A pinch of salt
     200cc milk
     1 whole egg
     2 tablespoons butter, melted
     Extra butter
     Maple syrup, whipped cream, or anything else you like on your pancake!

1.    Combine dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a bowl and mix well with a whisk.
2.    In a separate bowl, whisk the milk and egg together.

3.    Add the egg and the milk mixture into the powder mixture and add the melted butter. Whisk lightly. Make sure not to mix too much, because it will make a tough batter.

4.    In a heated pan, add butter for cooking the pancakes. Using a ladle, pour a serving of the pancake mix into the buttered pan. Keep the heat low to medium heat.

5.    When bubbles appear on the surface, flip over the pancake.

6.    Cook for additional 1 to 2 minutes and serve.

*You could keep the pancakes in the oven at around 180°F to keep them warm while the rest are cooking. Dont leave them in the oven for too long or they will dry up!
Serve with butter, whipped cream and/or maple syrup!
