Lifted this recipe from everything2 on Tuesday. Visit the site and do a search for pancakes to see the rest of the write up; it puts forward a pretty convincing case for the delight of making things for yourself. Put down that packet mix and get out the mixing bowl.

  • 3 Tsp butter, melted
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • 3 Tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder

Last minute shopping in Wolverhampton town centre highlighted a gap in the baking powder market. Tesco Metro were sold out. Marks and Spencers (the only other grocery store in that part of town) have a ‘bakery’ section, however, upon closer inspection I realised it consisted entirely of ready-made cakes in boxes. The sign appears to be a signal to people who want to avoid bakery. The local Indian supermarket came to the rescue on the way home – replete with baking powder, directly opposite the Halal meat.

Oh, and don’t forget the Maple Syrup; it’s a crucial requirement for this American style pancake.
