Variety of Pancakes

Fluffy American Pancakes
- 135g plain flour (I use self-raising for fluffier pancakes)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt (I omit If using salted butter)
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 130ml milk
- 1 large egg, lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) plus extra for cooking
1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar into a large bowl. In a separate jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in melted butter.
2. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Let batter stand for a few minutes.
3. Cook over a medium heat. It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over.

Oreo Pancakes

2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, oil and egg. Add dry ingredients to milk mixture; whisk until just combined. Fold in roughly crushed oreos.
Heat a large skillet grease with baking spray or oil.
For each pancake, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto the skillet.

Serving Option for Pancake Cake :
