American Hotcakes

Weekends are the only time my kids and I get to sit down together and have some nice breakfast.  Angelica is always more than happy to help setting the table! 

These American pancakes are perfect for a weekend morning or holiday breakfast.  Serve these delicious pancakes with butter, honey, jam, applesauce, Nutella or your favourite toppings and fruits.  They're also delicious with 'kaya', coconut jam, something we are unable to get here.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 medium eggs
1 cup milk
60g butter, melted
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp caster sugar
Pinch salt
Oil to brush the pan
Serves 3 -4


1.  In a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs, add in milk, melted butter and stir well.  Sift in flour, baking powder.  Then add in sugar and salt. 

2.  Using a whisk, stir until smooth and batter is free of lumps.  Cover with a tea towel for 10 minutes.

3.  Over medium low heat, brush the non-stick pan with oil.  Pour a level 1/4 cup of mixture at a time.  Cook for one minute or until bubbly, turn and cook the other side.  The second side take shorter time to cook.  Transfer to a plate and keep warm with a tea towel.  Repeat with the remaining batter.

4.  Serve with butter and your favourite toppings.
