Pancakes - Z and Mumsu's favorite

Toddlers love pancakes, and the best part is you can actually make it in a jiffy. You can also experiment with it by adding different fruits. Z and I love it just the way they are with no honey or chocolate syrup :-). I used to buy this pre-made mix available in the market but when I tried making them from scratch they tasted better.

So here is the recipe (hope Z reads it when she grows up and makes them for me one day).

Ingredients you need (to make around 7-8 small pancakes):
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
  • a tsp sugar
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp melted butter (I use Amul Lite)
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg, add the milk and the melted butter.
  • Add the contents of both the bowls together, mix well, there should be no traces of flour visible. It's OK if it's a little lumpy.
  • Heat a nonstick pan on medium-high and add oil when the pan is hot.
  • Use a ladle or measuring cup to pour the batter like you do in case of a dosa.Spread the batter on the pan with the  side of the cup or bottom of the ladle. 
  • Make sure you cook on medium heat else you'd end up burning the pancakes. 
  • Flip the pancake when they are dry at the edges and bubbles start to come on the surface
  • Cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute longer on both sides and serve warm. 


  1. It seems quite manageable....BTW which oil do you use?

  2. Vegetable oil/butter... I prefer Amul Lite...
