American Fluffy Pancakes

It took me a long time to find the perfect recipe for thick, fluffy (proper) breakfast pancakes but I've finally found it and best of all it's four simple steps.

            1. Weigh out the 115g of plain flour,    2. Measure out 150ml of milk.
            1/4tsp salt, 1/2tsp baking powder
            and 1tsp vanilla essence. Combine
            together in a bowl.

            3. Make a well in the centre of the        4. Mix until it forms a thick batter.
            dry ingredients, then add in the egg       Then let it rest for 30 minutes to allow
            and milk gradually.                                  it to thicken up (I don't always wait...).
Then add butter to a hot pan (not too hot to burn the butter or pancakes though) and blob on the batter to form small but thick pancakes. A good way to tell if they are ready to flip is when the batter begins to bubble on the top.

My favourite way to eat these pancakes is with maple/golden syrup, strawberries and bananas!
