This is the first time that I’ve tried and cooked American Pancakes so I’m looking forward to trying something new.

Simple American Pancake Recipe

 

What you will need:

  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 35g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 125mls Buttermilk
  • 25g Butter (melted)
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 8 Thick slices of streaky bacon
  • Maple Syrup

How to make American Pancakes:

Sift the flour, baking powder, and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Add in the sugar, mix, and make a well (hole) in the centre.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and add the buttermilk and melted butter.

Pour this into the well of the dry ingredients and gradually whisk together.

Put the batter in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour.

Heat a large frying pan and add a little bit of oil.

Spoon in dollops of the mixture making sure that there is a little bit of space between them. This will depend on the size of your frying pan.

Cook them for 1 – 2 minutes until they start to bubble on the surface, turn and cook on the other side until golden.

Keep them warm in the oven whilst you batch cook the rest of the pancakes.

In a separate pan heat 1 tablespoon of oil and fry the bacon rashers until crisp.

Serve the pancakes in a stack with crispy bacon and maple syrup on top.

Alternatively, you could have these with fruit and maple syrup as Ryan did.
