Buttermilk Pancake

I always run out of idea what to cook for breakfast. And I'm sick of cooking the same type of Malay breakfast, nasi goreng, bihun goreng...bla..bla...Not that they don't taste good, they do!! But I'm looking for variety.

So I browsed the Internet and found this recipe: BUTTERMILK PANCAKE.

And since I had the leftover buttermilk from making chocolate cake before,hey...buttermilk pancake is a good idea, indeed.

The recipe is very easy to be prepared and delicious to taste. It is supposed to be eaten with maple syrup but since I don't have one, I substitude with chocolate syrup. Still tastes so good...

So here is the recipe:

1 cup (140 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons (28 grams) granulated white sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk
3 tablespoons (40 grams) unsalted butter, melted
Plus extra melted butter for greasing the pan.

1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

2. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and melted butter. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, all at once, and stir or whisk just until combined. The batter should have some small lumps. Make sure you do not over mix the batter or the pancakes will be tough.

3. Heat a frying pan or griddle over medium high heat until a few sprinkles of water dropped on the pan or griddle splatter. Using a pastry brush, brush the pan with a little melted butter.

4.Using a small ladle or scoop, pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the pan, spacing the pancakes a few inches from each other. When the bottoms of the pancakes are brown and bubbles start to appear on the top surfaces of the pancakes (2-3 minutes), turn over. Cook until lightly browned (about 1-2 minutes).

I tell you, it is so easy!!!!
