Servings: 12-15 pancakes
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Total time: 30 min
What you need
- 350g all-purpose flour
- 500ml whole milk
- 4 eggs
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sodium bicarbonate
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoon sugar (i used brown sugar)
- 2 tablespoon butter or oil
- vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
What you do
1. First of all, separate the egg yolks from the whites in two separate bowls. I used medium-size eggs. If you don't separate the eggs, you can use them as they are. But separating them will make the pancakes more fluffy.
2. In the bowl with the egg yolks add the milk, vanilla extract and melted butter and mix until all incorporated.
3. In the bowl with the egg whites add a pinch of salt and use a hand mixer on medium speed where you add the sugar slowly. When it starts foaming, set the hand mixer at high speed and mix until the mixture resembles as a fluffy cloud and stands up in stiff peaks when blades are lifted.
4. In the third bowl, mix the flour with the salt, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate.
5. Add the third bowl of flour mixture, little by little, to the first bowl of milk mixture, mix it evenly using a whisk, until there are no more lumps left. Try not to over-mix it. Then add a little bit of the fluffy whites into the batter and mix it well. Add all of it, little by little, mixing it gently bottom to top.
7. Heat a nonstick skillet, at medium heat with a little bit of coconut oil or butter. You can use a paper towel to wipe out the excess, to leave a thin coating behind. When the skillet is hot enough, pour one ladle of batter and flip it when air bubbles start to form on top.
7. You will make between 12 and 15 pancakes, depending on the size. Once they are all done you can enjoy them with some chocolate spread, bananas, strawberries, honey or butter or whatever is your favourite topping.
- Make sure the ingredients are used at room temperature.
- If the batter is too thick, fold in a couple of tablespoons of milk or water and mix.
- Pan should be hot enough, but, ensure reducing the heat to medium low before pouring the batter.
- You can grease pan with butter or oil, anything of them is fine.
