Freshly cooked pancakes


Looking for the best breakfast treat? It is definitely pancakes, especially when they are drenched with real maple syrup! It is always a dream come true when you wake up one morning to the smell of freshly cooked pancakes and a cup of English breakfast tea.

You are lucky you are able to stumble upon a really easy pancake recipe which is based on a recipe from Watermark Restaurant in Balmoral Beach on Sydney Harbor. These pancakes really sell right off the pan there. With this on-hand, you can forget about those ready-to-mix pancakes and make your very own.

You can do many things with this classic pancake recipe other than doing everything according to what is given here. You can put in ingredients like banana, blueberries, strawberries, chocolate, or apple. You can even use pump in some flavors like vanilla bean, cinnamon, honey, or some real maple syrup. Aussie ingredients like wattleseed, lemon myrtle, and fruit spice also mix in well with this pancake recipe. Australian fruits such as rosella, riberries, and quandongs make wonderful fruit garnish on top of your pancakes.



200 g (1½ cups) plain flour
300 ml (10 ounces) milk
60 g (2 ounces) castor sugar
10 g (2 tspns) baking powder
2 small eggs
60 g (2 ounces) of melted butter

pinch of salt



1.       Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl until they are thoroughly mixed then create a crater at the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the center the milk, egg, and melted butter.

2.       Make a batter out of your mixed ingredients by thoroughly mixing them. If you want to add fruits or some liquid flavorings, make sure that your batter is a little thick. Set the batter aside for about 20 minutes so that your pancakes will be fluffier when they are cooked.

3.       Place your pan over medium heat then melt a little butter on it. Cook in a little of your pancake batter in the pan and be sure not to overcrowd your pan with cooking pancakes to avoid them from sticking to each other as this will make flipping the pancakes harder. You will do well to cook the pancakes one at a time.

4.       Small bubbles will begin to appear on the pancake as it begins to cook. Flip over the pancake when you see these bubbles start to pop. Cook the other side until that side turns golden brown (this would take about a minute).

5.       Pile your cooked pancakes on a plate and garnish with your desired toppings. You can go with simple toppings like butter and real maple syrup or a butter-sugar-lemon juice combo.
