A piece of fluffy pancake dunked in some Apple Cinnamon syrup – a perfect breakfast for a perfect day..!!
My sister Ammu had sent me a recipe for an apple cinnamon syrup a loooong time back. However I could not make it and hence not taste it till now because of a houseful of sick kids. Now that we have returned to normalcy, this breakfast made an appearance on the table and boy, was it a hit or what..!
A pancake is a thin, flat, round cake prepared from a batter, and cooked on a hot griddle or frying pan.My relation with pancakes have been very odd , sometimes watery sometimes burnt. But this recipe which I got from the King Arthur Flour is just amazing and precise. It changed the relation status quite a bit. And topped with this delicious apple cinnamon syrup, its a tingling of tastebuds in every bite.. yum yum..!!
FLUFFY PANCAKES FOR BREAKFAST
Source King Arthur Flour
- All Purpose Flour – 1 1/2 cups
- Salt – 3/4 tsp
- Baking powder – 2 tsp
- Eggs – 2 large
- Milk – 1 1/4 cup
- Sugar – 2 Tbsp
- Butter – 3 Tbsp
- Beat the eggs and the sugar together till they are light and foamy.
- Stir in the melted butter and whisk well.
- Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well to combine.
- Heat a griddle or a frying pan. Let the pan get really hot and then turn the flame to medium. Pour in a small ladle (about 3 Tbsp) of batter and let it spread lightly.
- Observe the bubbles or holes appearing on the top. Flip sides when this happens. Cook the other side and remove from flame. Use a piece of kitchen paper or cloth dipped in some butter to lightly lubricate the pan before you pour the next batch. It need not be soaking in butter, just very light.
- Serve immediately with some apple cinnamon syrup (recipe follows).
- If you want to prepare ahead, store the pancakes with some parchment paper in between each pancake, so that it does not stick together and keep it in a hot pot.
