 * As you can probably tell I got a bit excited with the Nutella and went crazy!

With Pancake day soon approaching, 5 days in fact!! I thought that I would share how to make these American-style fluffy pancakes. Don`t get me wrong, I do love the classic thin crepe but there is something special about American pancakes I just love. The toppings are endless and they are so easy to make.

You might have seen these on my Instagram story?

I N G R E D I E N T S 

135g Plain Flour 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/2 tsp Salt 
2 tbsp Casta Sugar 
2 Tbs Casta Sugar 
130ml Milk 
1 Large egg 

I used Nutella and banana you can be as creative as you wish here 

M E T H O D 

1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly wish together the milk and egg. 

2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, use a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear after a little mixing. 

3.  Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has slightly risen. 

4. Keep repeating until all the batter is used up. 

5. Add your favourite toppings and enjoy! 
(I found this recipe from the trusted BBC food)

Hope you enjoy your pancakes and share them with the people you love. 

What is your favourite pancake topping?
