Pancakes are great for breakfast. And I can't think of anybody that doesn't like them. But there are many different regional recipes out there, like American pancakes, crêpes or German Pfannkuchen. Pfannkuchen are bigger and not as fluffy as American pancakes while crêpes are almost too thin for my taste. This recipe is for American pancakes. They turn out great! And the measurements are perfect for two persons, or if you're really hungry, you might want to eat them all on your own!

They are also not too sweet which is great because then you don't have to hold yourself back with the toppings! A popular topping in Germany is a mixture of sugar and cinnamon or a king of apple sauce. My boyfriend likes them with honey, I prefer strawberry or rasberry jam. 

Ingredients (makes 4 pancakes):

100ml milk

100g flour

1 egg

1 tablespoon of sugar

a pinch of salt

half a teaspoon of baking powder

Beat the egg and the sugar. Add in the milk, the flour, the salt and the baking powder. Let it sit on the counter for about 15-20 minutes. Then, heat some oil in a pan and add in 3 tablespoons of the batter. When it starts to get bubbly, you need to flip the pancake and cook the other side. If the pancake still looks a little pale, you can flip it again when the other side is done. 

How do you like your pancakes?

  1. I like butter and maple syrup on mine.

    Once we had a fancy pancake breakfast and layered: a pancake; butter; maple syrup; pancake; applesauce; whipped cream; repeat that twice(total of six pancakes) and drizzle more maple syrup over the top. I ate two stacks. :) Homemade everything except the flour and oil.


I'd love to hear from you!
