The Saturday morning breakfast of my childhood: pancakes. The recipe is highly customizable in terms of stuff you can put into it. I prefer chocolate chips, although you can use apples, blueberries, whatever.
1/2-3/4 cup Milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
-Mix melted butter, egg and milk together. Make sure the milk is room temperature or close to it so the butter doesn't turn back into a solid (like what happened to me! )
-Mix Team Dry in another bowl, then add to Team Wet. Stir just enough to dampen the flour. Add your other gubbins now and stir to combine.
-Lightly butter/grease a frying pan or griddle (nonstick for the win). The pan is hot enough when water sprinkled onto the surface jumps skips and runs all over the place.
-Small pancakes: 2 tablespoons of batter.
-Large pancakes: 1/4 cup batter. Or you can just eyeball it.
-When the batter on the pan is full of bubbles, time to flip!
-Lightly brown the other side. Move finished pancakes to plates for consumption (best eaten straight away). You can keep a plate or pan in a 200F oven for storing them until you've got a good stockpile built up.
