Pancakes This is a photo of some pancakes I made a few years ago. I also snapped some of the process.




Oh you want the recipe?

How to Make American Style Pancakes

You’ll need:

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon, chai spice mix, or Chinese 5 spice mix

Mix these together with a spoon or whisk.

In a separate bowl, put in:

  • 2 large eggs or 3 medium ones
  • 2 heaping teaspoons of sugar or 1 teaspoon sugar and 2 drops stevia liquid or a packet of stevia powder
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil or ghee

Whisk until fully smooth.

Add the wet to the dry, and start stirring. Gradually add a cup of butter milk, and then enough water to make it a batter. Use more if you like thinner pancakes. Get it to “mud” level if you prefer thicker pancakes.

Turn your pan on medium-high heat and wait until it is very hot. You can test this with droplets of water. If it sizzles right away, the pan is ready.

Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan and then using a ladle or large spoon, pour your pancakes the size you like. I recommend making them not much wider than your spatula.

When there are many bubbles coming up, turn the pancakes over.

When both sides are golden brown, transfer them to a plate and do the process again until you run out of batter.

Good luck, and if you make these, send us a photo so we can post it here.

Blessings and Ashé!
