Lately it has been raining a lot here in Finland, which makes the weather quite depressing. I thought it would be nice to do little throwback to the mid summer, since the sun was still shining back then.
I had a sleepover with my friend and we wanted to do big breakfast with pancakes, croissants, fruits and so on. I have never been big fan of pancakes, but that’s just because I have never succeed with making them. I always end up burning them or breaking them when trying to flip them around. This time we tried a recipe from ruoka.fi, the pancakes were easy to cook and they ended up being delicious. So I thought I could share it with you.
prep time 40 minutes — cooking time 15 minutes
- One big egg
- 2 deciliters milk
- 2 deciliters plain flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 tablespoon caster sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar (golden caster sugar)
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of butter for cooking (canola oil etc.)
Break the egg into a large bowl. Mix together milk, flour and baking powder in another bowl, then add the sugars and salt. Mix them with the egg. At last add the butter and stir to a smooth batter then leave it to the fridge for a while.
Heat non-stick frying pan (teflo) and grease the pan lightly with butter. Pour some of the batter into a pan, about one or two table spoons. Remember that the batter will rise a lot. Cook both sides for few minutes, they are ready when they are golden and firm. Before you start to cook next one remember to re-greace the pan.
We ate the pancakes with maple syrup and berries but you can also serve them with yoghurt, butter, fresh fruits or whatever you prefer.
