Homemade Pancake (Dairy)

This morning decided to make pancake as I have made some blueberry jam last night. I usually see friends like to buy pancake pre-mix. When my children were toddlers, I have tried pre-mix once or twice but usually couldn't finish the whole packet and it goes into waste bin.  Ever since I read through recipe books and also viewing several blogs, I realised that making homemade pancake is really easy. What we need is all purpose flour plus baking powder or just  self-raising flour which I have them  all the time in my kitchen. The rest of the ingredients are also common in my kitchen cabinet. Also, I am sure of what we eat unlike those pre-mix which probably with added preservative.

Ingredients (Yields 8pcs of abt 12-15cm)
1.5 cup self-raising flour
1 cup fresh milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 eggs, beaten lightly
3 tbsp caster sugar

Add lemon juice into milk and let it stay for about 10min. I do this because I do not have buttermilk at home. You can substitute lemon juice with white vinegar. Note: if you do not have lemon or vinegar,  you may omit it. Just fresh milk is fine.

Sift flour in a large bowl. 

In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar together for few minutes. Add the above milk added lemon with juice. Whisk them together. Then gradually whisk the egg mixture  into the flour. Whisk until mixtute makes a smooth batter. Tranfer batter to large jug.

Heat up a non-stick frying pan. Highly recommended non-stick pan.

Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into frying pan. Cook pancake until you see bubbles appear on surface and almost dry. Turn the pancake with a spatula to lightly brown other side. Cover pancakes on plate with foil to keep them warm. Continue to make more pancakes with remaining batter.

Serve pancakes topped with your desired jam and butter or margarine

P.S.  If you are using a normal frying pan, oil the frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil. Then use a kitchen paper towel to wipe away excess oil. Note: the first piece using normal frying pan will not look so desirable. But subsequent one will be perfect.

Note: If you do not have a metric measuring cup at home, you may use any kind of cup for drinking your water or coffee etc.. Just make sure you use the same cup to measure all the ingredients
