Today, I made pancakes for breakfast. I got on the internet and looked for a recipe. I like the internet for that. It is the World Wide Web and my World Wide Cookbook.
The first thing that I did was to collect my ingredients. I needed flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, an egg, almond milk, and cooking spray.
My next step was to combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
In another bowl, I combined the egg, almond milk, and the melted butter. I prefer to melt butter in a small pot on the stove, although it is perfectly all right to melt butter in the microwave. After the liquid ingredients are combined, then I add the dry ingredients to the mix.
That gets stirred so that the dry ingredients are covered but it is unnecessary to make the batter smooth. It’s not a cake! So it’s OK to leave lumps in the batter.
While I am making my pancake batter, I am heating a griddle. This recipe calls for vegetable oil spray to be applied to the griddle.
My next step is to pour batter on the griddle. I can make four pancakes at a time. According to the recipe, I was to set the timer for five minutes and, after that time expired, I was to flip the pancakes.
After five minutes, the pancakes were nowhere near ready to be flipped. My griddle is old and rather cold. So I reset the timer for seven minutes.
|The pancakes are topped with plain Greek yogurt and blueberries. While I waited for the pancakes to cook, I made a smoothie, with blueberries, plain Greek yogurt, and apple cider. Breakfast is served!|
I made about ten pancakes with this recipe. They are thin and light, almost like crepes.
