Ingredients

• 1 1/2 cups plain flour
• 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 tablespoon white sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 1/4 cups milk
• 3 tablespoons melted butter

Method

1) With a non-stick pan, melt the butter. Be careful not to set at too high a temperature. If the butter sizzles and bubbles, it is too hot. Pour the melted butter into a small dish and set aside. Use a kitchen towel to wipe the pan clean.

2) Sieve flour, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar in and mix well. Make a well in the middle, and add the egg, milk and melted butter. Mix until smooth for about 3 minutes. Do not over mix or it will become tough.

3) Let batter rest for 10 minutes. Heat up the pan again to medium heat.Scoop the batter onto the pan, using the back of a ladle to spread out the batter. Each pancake is about 1/4 cup of batter, so you should be able to get 8 to 10 pieces.

4) The batter will form holes at the top when it is done. When the holes have formed, check the underside. If the underside is light brown, you can flip your pancake to the other side.

5) Serve hot with maple syrup or other toppings like cut fruits or whipped cream.

Tip: You can add cinnamon powder and vanilla extract into the batter as well. Just mix the cinnamon powder with the dry ingredients and vanilla essence with the wet ingredients.
