Easy Peasy Buttery Pancakes

Have you ever woken up late on a school-day morning and wondered what to make in 10 minutes. Or panicked before your kid was back from the playground...what to make? A snack that was tasty, needed minimum ingredients and ready in 10 minutes flat! The answer is...Pancakes!

Pancakes are easy to make, yummy, and made from the scratch in minutes. I am really impressed by my fellow KFBian Sarani. She makes these delightful pancakes with various toppings. Super yum!

I thought I will share the pancake recipe that I make most often at home. The hubby man and little S loves them. Period.

Here is the recipe:


All purpose flour: 1/2 cup
Whole wheat flour: 2 tablespoons
Milk: 1/3rd cup
Water: 1/3rd cup + 2 tsp
Butter: 1 tablespoon
Vanilla essence: 1/2 tsp
Baking soda: 1 pinch
Sugar: 1 and a half tablespoon (1 tablespoon if you want it mildly sweet.)
Salt: to taste
Oil for frying.


1. Mix all the ingredients together to make a thick, lump-free batter.
2. Place a frying pan on the gas flame. Heat about a teaspoon of refined oil. Optionally, you can add 1/2 tsp of butter along with 1/2 tsp oil. The pancakes will be really yummy!
3. Place a ladle-full of batter in the center of the pan. Add a little oil at the sides for cooking it well.
4. Once the sides are golden-brown, flip to the other side and fry some more.
5. When both sides are well cooked, remove from the pan.
6. Follow this process to make more pancakes.
7. Serve the pancakes with honey or jam.
