.OK!!ENOUGH DRAMA!........... Just wanted to tell you how good they were! Mission accomplished!.....lets move on to the recipe............

This recipe makes more or less 12 pancakes.

TIP:  If you don't have buttermilk, you can make your own by adding 1 tbsp vinegar to 1 cup of milk. let it stand for 10-15 minutes before using.

All purpose flour - 2 cups
Sugar - 2.5 tbsps
Baking powder - 1.5 tsps
Baking soda - 1.25 tsp(1 and a quarter)
Buttermilk - 2.5 cups
Eggs - 2
Salt - a pinch
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

*Butter, for greasing the pan and serving
*Maple syrup or honey, for serving

*For chocolates pancake just add 2/3 cups cocoa powder to the above ingredients.

  • Mix the flour,baking powder, baking soda and salt in one bowl.
  • In another bowl using a whisk, beat together the eggs. Add in the sugar and whisk well. Add the vanilla essence and buttermilk
  • Now slowly pour in the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix till there are no lumps  and the batter is smooth. 
  • Now take a skillet and add a blob of butter. When the butter starts to melt spread till it covers the entire surface of the skillet. Scoop out about 1/4 cup of batter( or whatever size you would like your pancake to be) and pour into the centre of the skillet 
  • Keep the flame on low. When you see small bubbles appear on the surface of your pancake, its time to flip it over. When the other side starts to brown slightly, you're done. 
  • Use the remaining batter in the same way remembering to butter up the skillet first.
  • Serve with some butter and maple syrup
note: for the chocolate pancakes just add  in the cocoa powder to the dry ingredients and continue the recipe as above.
