I really notice the difference between home-made pancakes and ones made out of a box. These have a much smoother, chewier texture than the kind you get in a restaurant and are definitely worth the little bit of extra effort.
1 Cup Milk
1 Pinch of Salt
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Cup Flour
1 1/2 Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp Vegtable oil or melted Butter
Mix together and spoon into a pan with a ladle. Cooking pancakes all depends on the temperature of the pan. Make sure that the pan is heated to a medium heat. Cook one pancake first. The first pancake always turns out ugly-looking for some reason but after that your pan should be ready and give you perfect golden brown smooth pancakes.You will know that the pancake is ready to flip when the bubbles on the surface of the batter burst and your pancake looks like it has a whole bunch of holes in it.
I recently discovered that if you are not in the mood to mix your own batter but you want better than ordinary box pancakes that you can use a store-bought cake mix as your batter. This is kind of brilliant actually and opens up a variety of different flavor options that I had never considered before.
