My experiment for today is pancakes from scratch.
IHOP just opened here in the Philippines but I do not want to go yet because the line is still long. Mayette was there this morning to celebrate Tita Letty's birthday for breakfast. So, that is how I got my inspiration and browsed the Internet for a good and easy recipe.
I cannot find a good pancake syrup in the supermarket so I made my own caramel sauce. I put a scoop of peanut butter on top of the pancakes and added chopped Snickers.
1 C. Flour
1t. Baking powder
1 t. Baking soda
1/4 C. Oil
1/4 C. Sugar
1T. Lemon juice
1 + 3T. Low fat milk
Mix all the ingredients using a mixer.
Heat a griddle and use a ladle to pour the batter. When bubbles appear flip over the pancakes.
It was a little time consuming but so worth it! The pancakes were so light and fluffy! I will never buy premixed pancake ever again.
1 T. Water
1/4 C. Cream
Boil water and sugar together until it is golden brown, remove from heat and slowly pour the cream. Return pot to the stove and stir for a few seconds. Drizzle over pancakes while still warm.
