The recipe here fulfils your morning cravings for a delicious start. It can also fit in the menu at any time of the day because you will never get tired of it. The pancakes are a combination of French fineness and Canadian richness. These pancakes are thicker than crepes but thinner than the regular pancakes most of us are used to.
White flour: 1 cup
2% milk: 1 cup
Lard, butter or margarine (for cooking purposes)
Sugar: 1 teaspoon
Salt: ½ teaspoon
Baking powder: 1 tablespoon
Vanilla extract or substitute: 1 teaspoon
Make the batter first. Take the large mixing bowl and pour in all the ingredients except the flour, milk and the cooking butter.
Now add in the milk and flour, gradually to prevent any lumps in the batter. Use a whip or an electric mixer to mix everything together so that you have a smooth batter.
Place your frying pan on the stove and turn on the heat. Place in the butter or margarine you want to fry your pancake in. Let it melt well.
Fill up a ladle with the batter and pour it into the frying pan. Spread around the mixture around the pan evenly in a circular motion.
When you see the butter underneath making bubbles, it is an indication that the bottom side has cooked. Flip over your pancake and cook the other side too.
When the other side is done too, take off your pancake in a serving platter. Enjoy with syrup or jam of your choice.
