My Homemade pancake

This week is The International week for the Infant Department. Each class was given one specific country and during this week, the kids learned everything about that country such as their history, culture, food, clothing and as well as the meaning of the colours of their flag. Haqeem’s class learned about Egypt and today everyone come to school wearing the costume representing the country that they have learned. Kat sini people take costume day seriously and a lot of shops sell costume for almost all occasion. So, yesterday we bought Egyptian costume from the Toy World and mind me, it cost KD8… mahal gila. That will be RM88! Nak pengsan rasanye. Nak tengok RM88 punya costume looks like? Ini lah dia…

Okay… back to business  Today nak cerita pasal pancakes. When Umi is super duper lazy , all you can see on a breakfast table will be pancakes pancakes and more pancakes he he he. This recipe makes a fluffy pancakes and the best thing is, you can make the pancake mixture and store it in your pantry way ahead of time. No need to buy the store box pancake mix when you can make it yourself. The recipe was taken from Nigella Lawsan, one of my favourite chef from Food Network.

Method:

  • Pancakes Mix : Combine all of the ingredients in a lidded container. Shake to mix. Use the mix within 3 months.
  • Pancakes : Whisk together the egg, the buttermilk and melted butter in a small bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour the liquid ingredients on top of the pancake mix. Using a whisk, mix the batter just enough to bring it together. Don’t try to work all the lumps out. Lightly butter the griddle. Wipe off thoroughly with a paper towel. Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the griddle-side of the cake is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
