Light and fluffy, these American Pancakes are ideal for Shrove Tuesday or whenever you fancy! Personalise yours with toppings of your choice, or serve simply with a delicious drizzle of maple syrup and a scattering of seasonal berries. The TempControl function on selected Miele induction hobs makes cooking much easier. It has intelligent temperature sensor technology to ensure a precise heat output, automatically maintaining the optimum temperature resulting in perfectly cooked pancakes.
For the Pancakes
130g plain flour, sieved
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
130ml whole milk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly), plus extra for cooking
Place the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Allow the batter stand for a few minutes.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter (if your hob has the temperature control function use setting 3). When the butter has melted, add a ladle of batter.
Once the top of the pancake begins to bubble, turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen. Repeat until all the batter is used up.
