- All-purpose flour 1 cup (130 grams)
- Baking powder 1 1/2 tsp.
- Salt 1/4 tsp.
- Granulated white sugar 2 tbsp.
- Egg 1 (large and lightly beaten)
- Milk 1 cup (240 ml)
- Unsalted melted butter 2 tbsp.
- Extra butter to grease the pan
- Take a large bowl and add flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in it and mix it well.
- Now take another bowl, add egg, milk, and melted butter, and whisk it together nicely.
- Next, once again take the bowl with flour mixture and create some space in the center of the dry ingredients. Then pour in the egg mixture in it and mix it well.
- You can use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon for it. Make sure not to stir the batter too much or the pancakes would not be soft. Even if the batter has some small lumps, let them be.
- Now take a frying pan and heat it on the cooktop gas. Keep the heat medium-high. Once the pan is hot, adjust the heat as needed.
- Then grease the pan lightly with a small amount of butter, even if you are using a non-stick pan. Then take a paper towel and remove any excess butter from the pan.
- Now take a small ladle, scoop, or spoon to pour the batter in the pan in a circular motion, so the batter spreads perfectly to make even-sized pancakes. Pour the batter at a distance of a few inches based on the size of the pan.
- Once the bottom sides of the pancakes have turned brown (cook it for 2-3 minutes) and you can see the bubbles on the top surfaces of the pancakes, flip them to cook the top surfaces. Cook them for 1-2 minutes until the color is light brown.
- Do the same with the remaining batter and continue to brush the pan with melted butter as you pour the new batch of pancakes.
- Once they are cooked and fluffy, serve them immediately with maple syrup and butter.
