Ingredients for Pancakes

by Ben Panny

Pancake ingredients are very important if you want to prepare scrumptious homemade pancakes. Buttermilk is, not surprisingly the magic ingredient. It adds flavor and also acid which reacts strongly to the baking soda. Buttermilk makes homemade pancakes light. If you don't have buttermilk, you can use milk alternatively.

Fresh flour tends to make a difference in pancake flavor and texture, because the easier the recipe, the more vital high-quality ingredients are. So get flour from a health food store or natural foods section of the grocery store. A truly great bread flour also makes a distinction.

Standard Homemade Pancake Ingredients:

Wet Pancake Ingredients:

1 egg, 1.5 cups (350ml) buttermilk, 2 Teaspoons Vanilla, 3 Tablespoons melted butter - use microwave

Dry Pancake Ingredients:

1 cup (125g) white flour, 3 Tablespoon sugar, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp baking soda

How to make the homemade pancakes batter from these ingredients?

Take two bowls.

Put the wet ingredients into one bowl and whisk lightly.

Put the dry ingredients in to the other bowl and whisk lightly.

Add roughly half of the dry mix in to the wet mix and whisk smooth.

Add remaining dry mix and whisk.

Be certain the flour is all mixed.

Do not mix too long because it tends to make pancakes tougher.

Ensure that the batter isn't runny.

Let the batter rest for few minutes.

Now the batter is ready and you can begin making your own homemade pancakes:

Test if the griddle or possibly a frying pan is hot enough by sprinkling several drops of water on it. When the drops dance and sizzle, it's prepared.

Or examine on the first pancake: if your pancake is browning on the bottom prior to bubbles show up on top, the griddle is too hot. And when the top becomes dry just before the bottom is golden brown, the griddle is just not hot enough.

Drop a 1/4 cup scoop of batter onto the pan. You might have to spread it around just a bit if the batter is extra thick.

Cook your homemade pancake for about two minutes of till golden brown color. Then turn the pancake with spatula and again cook for two minutes or till golden brown.

Serving pancakes:

Arrange pancakes nicely on a serving plate. Next warm the plats, butter and syrup. Heat syrup inside the microwave for 15-25 seconds. Serve pancakes with the nicest sides facing in. You can garnish pancakes using a dusting of powder sugar, nuts, fresh fruit slices or cocoa. Top your homemade pancakes with some very good topping. Be creative! It is time to try out anything new so move over maple syrup.

Here is actually a list of alternative pancake toppings you need to try out:

Whipped cream, Peanut butter, Caramel, Chocolate syrup, Cottage cheese, Honey, Cream cheese, Canned fruit pie fillings, Jam, Ice cream, Butterscotch sauce

Make homemade pancakes much more scrumptious! You may add some ingredients to pancake batter to make them much more scrumptious. I advise chocolate chips. It's quite simple to make and kids take pleasure in consuming these homemade pancakes. All you need to do, would be to pour the batter usually and sprinkle it with chocolate chips. Next, making use of the spoon "push" chocolate chips additional in to the batter.

Rather than chocolate chips, you could also consider to add some blueberries, bananas or just spices like cinnamon or vanilla.
