American style pancakes make for the perfect weekend breakfast treat.
This is a very simple recipe, adapted from one of Nigella's shows......makes a very tasty and satisfying start to the weekend.....
  • Serve along with crispy streaky bacon .... or
.... if you are craving a sweet treat .....serve along with red, sweet and luscious strawberries with a large serving of maple syrup or honey......hmmm
To make these pancakes you will need-
Ingredients: Makes 11 pancakes.
225 gms plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs beaten
300 ml milk or a little less than 1 and 1/4 cup of milk
1. Measure all the ingredients into a large bowl, in the order listed.
2. Beat with a beater just until no longer lumpy. Do not overbeat or pancakes will be tough. Set aside for 20 minutes.

4. Allow the pancake to cook till bubbles appear on the top surface of the pancake. Turn over and cook for about a minute.

Try making it with buttermilk instead of regular. You can take 1 cup of regular milk and put 1 tabsp of either vinegar or lemon juice in it(I use vinegar) and leave for a few minutes and then use it in your recipe. This way you don't have to buy a whole container of buttermilk you might not use again.
