This recipe yields about 10 small pancakes.
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cup milk
Oil or butter (to bake the pancakes)
First, mix all the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and add and mix the milk. Sieve the dry ingredients in the egg-milk mixture. Mix carefully. If you whisk too hard, the pancakes will turn out stiff. Make sure there are no big lumps left in the pancake batter, some small lumps are ok. Heat some oil or butter, on a griddle or a pan, at medium flame. Pour about 1/4 cup batter on the griddle. Let it bake and then flip and bake the pancake. The pancakes should be golden brown on both sides. Serve them warm immediately with a slice of butter and maple syrup or honey, the American way, or with jam, fresh fruits, whipped cream or anything of your choice!
