These good old-fashioned pancakes make the tastiest, fluffiest and most nostalgic pancakes you will ever try. This recipe has been in my family for generations – and it has never failed! It’s so easy, my 8 year old cousin made it on his own without any problems. So, with that said, you should ace this!
- 2 cups cake flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Beat the eggs, adding the sugar (I use an electric beater, but you could use a standard whisk or a blender instead). Add 1/2 cup of milk and the butter.
- Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add this to the egg mixture.
- Gradually stir in the remaining milk to, to form a smooth batter. Once the ingredients are well blended, stop stirring. Over-stirring could result in the pancakes not rising (they would then be crepes).
- Grease the frying pan with butter.
- Pour mixture into the pan in small quantities (or according to how big you want your pancakes to be!)
- Start on a medium-high heat, and then turn the stove plate down to a low heat. You may need to adjust the heat with each new batch.
- Let the mixture cook on one side until the top starts to bubble, then flip it over with a spatula and let it cook until it’s a golden brown.
- Serve with butter, syrup, ice-cream or any other topping of your choice!
