Flippin' Pancakes

We love pancakes at my house.  Love 'em.

They are super easy to make, the ingredients are almost always available in your fridge and pantry, and the fact that you can dress them up with bananas and chocolate chips as easily as dressing them down with just honey makes them so versatile.

This recipe is fool-proof and has been tried and tested over a hundred times.

Agave nectar is the perfect addition to this delicious breakfast

What you'll need:
135g all-purpose flour (easily switched with wholewheat or any other gluten-free flour)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons caster sugar (easily replaced with your favorite sweetner)
130ml low-fat milk
1 large egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter (allowed to slightly cool)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Topping/Flavors of your choice like: sliced bananas, cinnamon, chocolate chips, nuts...etc

  1. First, sift the flower, baking powder, salt and caster sugar in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, lightly whisk the egg, milk, and vanilla and add the butter.
  3. Mix both the contents of both bowls.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan, spray with cooking spray and spoon in the batter with a ladle.
  5. Make sure to not heat the stove too high or your pancakes will be very dry.  Once bubbles appear, flip!
  6. If using bananas, once the batter is poured, gentled place the bananas on the wet side up, before it hardens.  Put bananas on one side only.  Do the same thing with other toppings.
 When bubbles appear, flip!
When bubbles appear, flip!
And that's it folks - bon appetit!
