Basic English Pancakes

My baby "A" is 3 years now. After a lot of struggle, hopping between the roles of a Mother,Wife and a working woman, now, I finally am able to find some time to return back to my blog.

In these last 3 years, I have realized how difficult it is to manage everything with a baby. I must say, I am really lucky to be blessed with a caring and supporting husband, without whom I would not have been able to live up to the expectations in all my roles. While in the world, the debate still continues on "Working Woman VS Stay At Home Mom", I feel if you have a supportive family to fall back to, you can manage everything - be it your office job or household work.

Let us now talk about today's recipe:  Basic English Pancakes

- Maida (1 cup)
- Powdered Sugar (1/2 cup)
- Melted butter (2 tbsp)
- Egg (1 no.)
- Vanilla essence (2-3 drops)
- Milk(1/2 cup)
- Baking Powder (1 tsp)
- Oil (2 tbsp)

- Sift flour and baking powder together.
- Mix well the above dry ingredients with Sugar.
- In another bowl, mix egg, vanilla essence, melted butter and milk. I use a hand mixer for mixing, you can also do it with a fork.
- Now form a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture little by little and mix.
- Heat a girdle and put 2-3 drops of oil/butter. Spread accross the girdle.
- When the girdle is hot, pour one ladle of the pancake mixture on the girdle.
- Cook on medium heat. Pores will be formed on the surface of the pancake.
- Check the pancake and when it turns brown flip it and cook the other side as well.
- Serve hot with chocolate sauce/ honey / maple syrup or any sweet sauce of your choice.
