Be Your Own Pancake Chef!


Pancakes are best served when hot. But a fluffy and thick stack may not be enough to satisfy your breakfast or snack. With some tips on how to make the most sumptuous and delectable pancakes, you’ll get to add more to that fluffy stack and prepare it for tasty goodness!

Prepare your ingredients 

With complete ingredients, you won’t have to worry about what would lack in taste, texture, and look. Your pancake is set to perfection once done when you have these ingredients:

  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Milk
  • Melted Butter
  • One Egg
  • Vanilla Extract

Although you may use the more convenient and ready-to-mix packaged products, some who prefer the more traditional method in preparing pancakes may gather and use the ingredients mentioned above. However, achieving that perfect taste, texture, and look does not rely on the ingredients alone. Most of the times, it requires your skill. This leads to the next tip.

Be Thorough

Now that you have your ingredients, all you need to do is to be precise in cooking your pancakes. You will need to pour the exact amount of flour into a bowl, sift sugar, baking powder, and salt into the content, and then add milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract before stirring it until it mixes.

According to Stay At Home Chef, these are ingredients and their exact measurement you would need:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

This takes about five minutes in preparing. While stirring the contents, you may pre-heat and oil a pan or a griddle where you will pour the mixed contents. Try to achieve its circular shape before flipping it with a spatula. You will know once it’s done when the batter turns dry, its texture rises, or and its color changes from white to pale flesh.

Keep on pouring portions of the batter, and your stack of pancakes will grow.

Be Your Own Chef 

So, now that you’ve cooked the basics, would you eat bare pancakes without adding flavor? If you’re more comfortable with that, you may. But you may want to try something new.

Be creative with your pancakes. If you wish to add chocolate chips into the batter, you’ll have a pancake delight that looks similar to a giant chocolate-chip cookie. Or you may add fresh strawberries on top and glazed it with syrup. Strawberries may be among the options for delectable toppings. Why not try blueberries, nuts, or whipped cream? Either way, your taste best suits you.

Pancakes are generally among the most favored treats across America. Whether they serve as your meals or in-between snacks, pancakes can be styled with tastes the suit your liking. Try making one today and be your own chef!
