Easy Pancake Recipe / Resepi Penkek

Easy Pancake Recipe for the kids' breakfast


(Untuk Bahasa Melayu, skrol ke bawah)

All kids love pancakes and ordering Mcdonald's hotcakes happy meal for breakfast is like a ritual for my family. Today though, I decided that enough is enough, let's make our own pancakes since it's so easy. The trick is to get the right recipe of course :) well, a quick search shows that the basic ingredients are pretty much the same, flour, milk, egg, baking soda and salt plus your desired flavorings be it chocolates, fruits or vanilla.. texture and taste are actually pretty much experimental I would say, heat up your saucepan and try one first and adjust the batter accordingly, how hard could it be? once you get your favorite batter jot down the recipe!

For myself, I used the basic Jamie Oliver breakfast pancake recipe and tweak it a bit for my kids' taste. 

My simple pancake recipe is as such:

150g plus 3 heaped tablespoon flour
150g fresh milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tbsp sugar
a pinch of baking soda
a pinch of salt

Beat the eggs, and add in the milk and sugar. Fold in the rest of the ingredients DO NOT WHISK / BEAT. Over beating the dry ingredients will make the pancakes flat.

Heat up the non-stick girdle (I don't grease it with butter or oil) and pour the batter one at a time. 

Flip the pancake when bubbles start to appear on top. 

Serve with butter and jam or maple syrup. Makes 7-8 small pancakes.
