Pancake Goodness

Who does not like pancake?! It’s probably one of the most eaten breakfast food. Every once in a while, I like to serve pancake for breakfast at home. I usually add fruits or chocolate chips in it. The picture below, I mixed in chocolate chips. It was awesome, and we loved it. It’s my favorite!

To me, a good pancake lays on the batter. If your batter is tasty, your pancake would be superb. Here is what I made:

1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons or more unsalted butter (melted)- to cook the pancakes
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup of chocolate chips

Combined the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt) into a large bowl and mix them.

In a separate bowl, whisked the wet ingredients (milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla) together.

Poured the wet ingredients onto the dry and mix together just enough to combine them thoroughly. If you see lumps, it’s okay. When you cook them in the pan, they will smoothed out.

I added some chocolate chips. If you are using fresh fruits, you can mix them in with the batter too. But, if you are using frozen fruits, thaw them first, and you would need to put the fruits later after you pour the pancake batter on the pan. You can add whatever you want on your pancake. You can also put slices of fruits later on when they are done.

Prepare and heat the pan. Use the non-stick pan, so the pancake would not be sticky on the bottom. You can test if the pan is heated up by carefully dropping a few drops of water tossed onto the surface ran around franticly. Then spread the butter on the pan until it’s evenly coated, and you can’t see the butter. Don’t put too much as you would fry the pancake.

Scooped 1/3 cups of batter onto the pan. Cook until all the bubbles covered the pancake surface and begin to pop. Flip the pancake over. You only need half of the time to cook the other side.

Check if the bottom is lightly brown. If it is, remove the pancake, and serve.

Ps. I’ve read that extra pancakes can then be frozen, and when you want to eat it, you just stick them in the toaster oven.
