American pancakes, the original cakes
The American pancakes or pancakes, as the Yankees say, or also called "waffles" by many Latinos, are a typical breakfast of the culture of the United States of America. Through Hollywood movies have become a highly recognized dish all over the world. It must be recognized that they are really rich, especially adding butter and some syrup above. Inside the usual dressings we found the fruit, and as we said the syrups. The most authentic syrup we can find and that is the original recipe is "maple syrup" (affiliate link from Amazon if you do not find close to home), although a good jam, chocolate syrup or corn syrup (typical British) are an ideal complement.
Because we put syrups or jams. Simple, because the recipe in if you do not have much sugar, and despite having a rich texture are a little dry and syrups add that sweetness and moisture that they lack.
Recipe for American Pancakes
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 Envelope of soda (sodium bicarbonate)
- 1 medium Egg
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I do not recommend the olive)
To make this recipe for pancakes we need a blender. We can also make it in a bowl, but it will be more complicated and much more laborious.
We put the dry ingredients in the blender cup, i.e. flour, sugar, soda (bicarbonate) and salt.
Mix it with a spoon to make it more mixed.
We add the wet ingredients, i.e. milk, egg and oil.
We beat everything until a uniform mass is done. It has to have a dense texture, a little more liquid than a pure.
Here comes the complicated pancakes.
We put a pan or better if we have a crepe (flat pan for pancakes for the fire or electric, here we put the Amazon) to heat.
To see when it is hot with a few drops of water when we drop them on the pan they jump and evaporate quickly.
We pour "medallions" of the dough of American pancakes and let them be done until we see how bubbles form in the mass that explode. At that moment we turn them over to be done on the other side.
We make all the dough and we stack them one over another to keep the heat.
Here we leave a video in English that shows how to do it in a bowl. Sure you like
Here comes the easy thing about pancakes.
Put them on a plate and spread them with butter on one side and then put the syrup to taste or the jam or the sweet we want.
