Thick and Fluffy Pancakes

I don't know about you but around here, Friday's call for pancakes.

Especially this Friday.

You see Mr B and I had an RDO today and spent the day weeding, vacuuming, mopping, dusting, baking and frosting.

Pancakes are definitely required to balance out all of the housework. It's the only thing for it.

I have had a major craving for pancakes and maple syrup lately, but it's taken some time to find a really good recipe that makes thick fluffy gorgeous pancakes instead of flat boring pancakes.....if I wanted flat boring pancakes, I would make crepes. Not that there is anything wrong with crepes, but when you want pancakes, you want them thick and fluffy, like these!

Pancakes - Makes 10

1.5 cups milk
2 tspns lemon juice
2 tbspns caster sugar
1.5 cups self raising flour
1/4 tspn bicarb soda
1 egg
1.5 tbspns melted butter

Combine milk, lemon juice and sugar in a large jug and set aside for 5-10 mins - it will start to look a bit curdled, don't be alarmed, that's what it's supposed to do!

Sift flour and bicarb into a large bowl.

Combine egg and melted butter and whisk into milk mixture.

Add milk mixture to flour mixture and whisk to combine. Don't worry if there are still a few small lumps, the key is to not over-whisk the mixture as it will make your pancakes tough.

Leave the batter to rest for 2-5 minutes while you heat and lightly grease a fry pan over medium-high heat.

Pour 1/4 cup of the mixture into your fry pan and once bubbles appear on the surface and begin to pop, flip over and cook on the other side until golden.

Personally I like my pancakes drowned in maple syrup with a dollop of cream on top and Mr B likes his with a bit of ice cream added to the mix so whether you like yours with berries or whether you like them drowned in maple syrup like us, just make sure you enjoy them!
