Pancakes…homemade for first time…

Yes i know its sounds a little odd that i have never eaten pancakes before but in Greece its not so popular.We have something similar , a fried dough called tiganites but its much simpler. You just mix flour,water ,dry yeast and you fried  in oil. We put honey or sugar and you are done.

Yesterday morning i decided to try pancakes for first time. After a lot of searching i found a recipe for »never fail pancakes». I should have known it wouldn’t end well. They turned out too flat,more like crepes. Apparently there was too much flour and not enough baking powder. So today it was time for »grandma’s best pancakes ever». I was determined to try until i have the perfect pancakes. My second try was a huge success. Fluffy,light and oh so yummy pancakes!!!

Since maple syrup it’s not easily found in Greece ,we put different toppings. Honey and cinnamon,  homemade peach jam and nutella with some banana!!! Delicious!!!

Here is the recipe:

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup milk

1 egg

2 tablespoons melted butter

Mix first the dry ingredients and then add everything else. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan in medium heat and scoop 2-3 tablespoons of the batter. When turned golden brown they are ready. You will have 4 big or 8 small pancakes in less than 20 minutes.

Kali orexi!!!Enjoy!!!

    I’m from the USA—we cheat here and sometimes use a mix. If you can’t find maple syrup, you might be able to find some recipes for strawberry or blueberry syrup to serve on the pancakes.

    Lovely post about this dish so revered in the North. You have done great with your research and I bet your pancakes tasted delicious.
    I love your Greek toppings of honey and cinnamon, will try it out. I love jams on mine. Raspberry, strawberry or peach if I had any.
    My recipe has been handed down through a couple of generation, it comes from Sweden. I don’t use any baking powder. Might for fun do that ( a little ) or they will get too fluffy.😊 .

    They look pretty good to me! If you want really fluffy pancakes, you can separate the eggs and whip the whites to soft peaks. Then just gently fold them into the batter near the end. 💕
