Let’s make pancakes
Pancakes are a classic breakfast food, and for good reason! They’re easy to make, and can be customized to your liking. But if you’ve never made pancakes before, the process can seem a bit daunting. This recipe will show you how to make both pancakes and crepes, so you can decide which one you like best.
First, gather your ingredients. For pancakes, you’ll need milk, eggs, flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, and oil. For crepes, you’ll need milk, eggs, flour, sugar, and butter.
Next, mix your batter. For pancakes, whisk together the milk and eggs. Add the flour, sugar, and baking powder, and mix until everything is combined. For crepes, whisk together the milk and eggs until they’re well combined. Add the flour and sugar, and mix until everything is smooth.
Now it’s time to cook! Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat. For pancakes, add a dollop of batter to the pan. Cook for one to two minutes per side, until golden brown. For crepes, add a thin layer of batter to the pan. Cook for one minute per side
Let’s make crepes
Making crepes is easy and only takes a few minutes. You can make them ahead of time and freeze them, or cook them fresh and serve them right away.
To make crepes, you will need:
-1 cup of flour
-1 cup of milk
-1 tablespoon of sugar
-1/4 teaspoon of salt
-1 tablespoon of butter, melted
- In a blender or food processor, combine the flour, milk, eggs, sugar, and salt. Blend until the mixture is smooth.
- Heat a crepe pan or skillet over medium heat. Brush with some of the melted butter.
- Pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the pan. Tilt the pan to spread the batter evenly over the surface.
- Cook for one minute, or until the crepe is set and lightly browned.
- Flip the crepe and cook for another minute.
- Remove from the pan and keep warm. Repeat with the remaining batter, brushing the pan with more butter as needed.
