    Next step is to add 1 ¼ cups of flour, 2 eggs, and 1 ½ cup of milk in to a large mixing bowl and mix it all. Keep mixing until all ingredients are in a liquid form and there are no lumps. You also need to keep adding water until the batter is in a balanced form (not too thick or thin). Your pancakes will come out thicker if the batter is too heavy.

    If you are using butter for cooking in the pan, make sure it turns slightly brown before pouring your batter into it. Use only a teaspoon of butter and carefully place your batter on the pan and let it fry for 2-4 minutes. In case you are using cooking oil, make sure the oil is warm enough before placing the batter.

    You will know that your pancake is done when you see that the top is dry with bubbles appearing on it. Take good care while flipping them over and repeat the above procedure with the other side.

    After both sides of the pancake are complete, remove it from the pan and carefully place it on a large plate for it to cool down a bit. You can now serve these pancakes with a syrup of your choice.
