My son Devon has been watching too much of TV. He is so inspired by quick and jiffy breakfasts that some of kids have and says many a times…’Mom, why dont you make some pancakes like that guy is having right now ?’ and then drags me to see the TV. ….. so in my quest to make pancakes that Devon would like, I tried a few…and this is the one which he liked best. They were soft, fluffy and really yummy. Don’t go by the pictures..am not a good photographer; but try these. Trust me, you will have not only your kids, but hubby also saying…”I want more” ;).
2 cups all purpose flour
4 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon table salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 cups butter milk ( 1 added some water to curds and make it 2 cups )
2 large eggs
¼ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus some more for frying
Whisk flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda together in a large bowl. Add butter milk, eggs and cooled and melted butter to a second bowl and whisk to combine.
Make a well in center of dry ingredients and add the wet mix. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix or you will end up with tough and chewy pancakes.
Heat a small non-stick pan over medium heat. Add a few drops of veg oil and a pat of butter. Take about ¼ cup of batter for each pancake and add to the pan. Cook pancake until bubbles begin to burst on surface. Flip over and fry the other side. Keep done pancakes on a plate and let them sit in a warm oven as you finish all of them.
¾ cup water
1 cup light brown sugar
Small pinch of salt.
Add and mix over medium heat. Bring to simmer and stir until sugar dissolves. Let simmer for 20-25 minutes on a slow fire stirring occasionally. Cool before serving
