Since I was a little kid, my dad used to make pancakes.

I now seemed to inherit the family business. Almost every Sunday morning, I make pancakes.

This recipe now seems perfect. It took us a few years, but here it is...

Step 1:

Getting the Ingredients

1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour

2 tablespoons of sugar

3 teaspoons of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 cup milk

1 egg, slightly beaten

1/4 cup of salad oil


Step 2:

Making the pancakes

In a large bowl, under a mixer, mix dry ingredients. Let it mix for a minute or so. Then add the milk, (still under an turned-on mixer), egg, then oil. Let all ingredients mix.

In the meantime, heat up a grill on medium heat, add a bit of oil to grease surface.

Now, make sure all ingredients are mixed. Use a spatula to make sure there are no dry ingredients stuck to the bottom or side.

Next, decide whether you like your pancakes rather thick or rather thin.

If you want it thick, leave the batter as is. If you like them thinner, add about half a cup of milk.

Add enough batter onto the grill, in one place, so that the batter forms a circle about 4 inches diameter. It is normal if the first pancake sticks to the grill. Once the face in up side starts to bubble, flip the pancake. It should be a light brown color. Leave the pancake there for about 4 seconds. You can now check, occasionally, the color. Remove the pancake. I usually keep it in a microwave to keep it warm.


Step 3:

Eating the pancakes

I know this process includes a couple decisions, but I promise you this is the last. How do you like your pancakes?

Banana, Raspberries, plain, or my favorite, nutella. Serve anything (but chocolate) with a maple syrup as pure as you can get. I suggest 100% pure maple syrup.

Set up the table real nice... you're about to give yourself a great treat.

Once you are done, feel good about yourself. Give yourself a good pat on the back. This ain't easy to perfect. It took my dad and me a good few years to master and perfect. But no worries, your happiness is about to get happier!!!!

You may stack up as many pancakes as you like, just make sure to include syrup on each and every layer. I suggest to eat two or three pancakes at a time. Trust me, they are more filling as they look.


If you are done eating, and you have a few pancakes left over, no worries! These savorous breakfast items freeze. Just put them in a plastic freezer bag and stick 'em in a freezer. They taste just as good when you microwave them back up.
