Easy Fluffy Pancakes

A few months ago, I saw a My Melody pancake pan selling by someone on Facebook group, so I quickly bought it from her lol!

Nearly forgot about this until I saw Little Miss Bento's waffle post a few days ago. So I made some pancakes for breakfast this morning, which I was really thankful, for the easy steps!

This recipe is from Nasi Lemak Lover, and I find the pancakes quite fluffy. I used to make mini pancakes with the recipe, and I loved it! However my husband still find the pancake texture to be a little too dense for his liking. I remembered I read somewhere about adding some water to "thin" the batter, so that it will cook to a fluffier texture.

So this morning, I added 1.5 tsp of water to test out. And indeed, the husband loves the pancakes a lot! I wish I had the awesome cross section photo to show here hehe :)

Oh ya, as you can see, the pancakes turned out quite uneven - probably because it was quite hard to cook on this pan! Hahahha, I think I need more practise, so please don't mind the ugly photos!

Easy Fluffy Pancakes - Recipe Adapted from NasiLemakLover
(Serves 2 adults)
- 150g plain flour + 1.5 tsp baking powder (or 150g self raising flour)
- 40g sugar*
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 110ml milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp cooking oil
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, optional
- 1.5 tsp water*

1.  Place flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into mixing bowl. Whisk to mix well.

2.  Make a well in the centre of the bowl. Add in milk, egg, oil. Mix to just combine.

3.  Add in 1.5 tsp of water and mix to combine. Take note not to overmix the batter.

4.  Heat up non-stick pan over low heat. Ladle in batter. You can use tbsp size for toddlers, or if you wish to have mini pancakes (see my mini pancakes here). Cook till batter bubbles on surface and looks relatively set. Flip over and cook for further 1 min.

5.  Best to serve warm, with maple syrup and fresh fruits.

- I am using demerara sugar, as it has some nutritional values, compared to refined sugar. If you wish to have sweeter pancakes, can use sugar up to 50g.

- For the water to be added at the end, you can add up to 3 tsp of water. However, I would recommend you to try 1.5 tsp first, and then adjust the water according to your tastebuds, when you cook it the next time.
