Jack is Cooking: Pancakes!

Well Hello Internet!

 I’ve been wanting to start a special series for a while now, and seeing as it’s the beginning of a new year I thought now would be the perfect time to start.

 Usually on Sundays I have a craving for pancakes, a craving which I try to satisfy to the best of my abilities, either by making my own or finding my way to an establishment which serves excellent pancakes.

 When I make them myself, I always try new recipes and methods to come up with the perfect pancake. There are pancakes from all over the world and all of them are very different, some are fluffy and thick, while others are thin and silky. Some are more eggy and some are more cakey.

 So! My idea for this series is to make a different kind of pancake every week, and to post every recipe and different method as I go. Which means eventually I should have around 52 different kinds of pancakes!!! That’s a whole lot of pancakes!!

 Here’s pancake recipe no 1:

 This is my classic go to pancake recipe

Picture

 
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup white flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  •  1.5 cups milk
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey

 

Method:

 

Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

In a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients. Stir together very well until all the liquids are combined.

 Make a well in the dry ingredients and slowly pour the liquid mixture in while stirring. Mix until you have a nice smooth batter

 For best results i like to let the batter sit for about 30 minutes. This lets the flour break down a little and absorb some of the milk – which leads to a silkier pancake.

 Heat a pan on the stove, you want it at a steady medium heat. Add some butter, and let it melt.

 Pour batter into the pan to your desired pancake size and Cook until the top is bubbly. Flip, and cook for a couple of minutes on the other side.

 If you need to adjust the heat, turn it up or down until your pancakes are perfectly golden brown!

 Serve with butter, maple syrup, jam, and or honey.

 Enjoy!
