Recipe for Fluffy Pancake

by Ben Panny

With this fluffy pancake recipe we'll attempt to produce pancakes which are lighter, softer, and fluffier. The basic recipe is quite much exactly the same as every other pancake recipe. The only difference is we include just a little bit extra baking powder plus a little bit less milk. This makes the batter more dense and it raises even more when we cook it. The outcome is usually a nice and fluffy pancake. But that is not all. In the end I have collected and added some additional strategies to produce your flapjacks even softer. This recipe will serve two persons, maybe 3, but you'll be able to quickly double it. But first - what do we require to get started?

Fluffy Pancake Recipe Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, two teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 egg, 3/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup shortening melted

First take a bowl large enough to hold all of the ingredients and toss in the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt - all of the dry stuff. Then put all the wet ingredients - egg, milk and shortening and stir them into the dry ingredients till you get a moist and even pancake batter.

The batter will in all probability be pretty thick and this really is the way we want it. It may be a little complicated to pour on your griddle or pan, but the pancakes is going to be fluffier.

We need to have about 1/4 cup of batter for one particular pancake. Pour the batter onto a greased hot griddle and make a 4 inch pancake. You can also use a nonstick pan or perhaps a typical pan having a bit of oil or butter to avoid pancakes from sticking to it.

Cook the pancakes on medium heat. Because the batter is thicker don't use too much heat simply because your pancakes will turn brown on the outside and can still not be done in the middle. Low to medium heat provides finest results. Turn the pancake around when bubbles form on top of it after which cook until the second side is golden brown.

And we are finished.

Now for the additional fluffy tricks and recommendations:

1. Sift the flour - this one is quite fundamental and lots of persons advise it. Just sift the flour before you get started producing your pancake batter.

2. Separate the egg whites from the yolk and beat them - it is an old trick that you can use in any recipe to obtain softer results. Separate the egg whites from the yolk and beat them till they turn to white creamy snow. Then follow the fluffy pancake recipe except do not add the egg whites to the batter. Only when the batter is mixed and prepared slowly and gently stir in the egg whites after which make pancakes.

3. Substitute some milk (1/4 cup) with bubbly mineral water (one that has CO2 gas in it). Use plain water devoid of any additives, don't use flavored ones (well actually you can, but then you would get flavored pancakes :) ). The CO2 bubbles in the water will likely be released in to the batter making it lighter and creating even more fluffy pancakes :). If you are bold - some people even use beer for this! Think about beer foam - lots and lots of tiny bubbles.

So that is it for the fluffy pancake recipe , let me know how it goes or should you have any additional pancake guidelines and tricks.
