• Buttermilk pancakes

    This is the recipe I mentioned from Genius Kitchen.  Serves 2.  Happy baking!

    Ingredients

    • 1 egg
    • 128g plain flour
    • 1 tbsp sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 245g buttermilk
    • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
    • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 -2 tablespoon vegetable oil
    • Bananas, kiwi fruit, plain yoghurt and maple syrup for serving

    Method

    • In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg on medium speed until frothy.  If too difficult, froth up using a whisk.
    • Add the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla and mix well.
    • Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, and beat on medium speed just until blended.
    • Heat a lightly greased frying pan or pancake pan.
    • Pour about half a soup ladle of batter onto the pan for each pancake.
    • Cook until the tops of the pancakes are covered with tiny bubbles and the batter is set, about 4 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until the undersides are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes more.  Adjust cook time, according to hob.
    • Repeat with remaining batter.
    • Top with toppings of your choice, as suggested.
