What you need to make classics pancakes
The ingredient list is minimal; so is the effort. I have found that sifting the flour helps to minimize lumps but I don’t always do it. They turn out perfectly either way. Butter is mandatory for frying pancakes; I feel very strongly about this, lol. However, you can fry them on a dry nonstick griddle.
How to make fluffy Pancakes
In a mixing bowl, sift the flour with the salt, sugar, and baking powder. Beat in the egg, butter, and milk until smooth. Be careful not to over mix it. Some lumps are fine.
Fry the cakes in butter by batches of four using a ¼ or ⅓ cup measuring scoop. Makes approximately 12.
Serve them with butter and Homemade Pancake Syrup.
