Homemade Pancake - A simple recipe!

Children love pancakes, so do the boys. They are undeniably crazy over McDonald pancakes. They love dipping it into the maple syrup, getting their little fingers coated with sweet syrup, and finally licking them off. This is the very best reason which is why Mummy Mae started the attempt to create some homemade pancakes.

Homemade pancakes are surprisingly easy to make. It is definitely easier if you own a non-stick pan. I am using the double Happy Call Pan and it served me well. I started making pancake using ready mix, like Betty Crockers Butter Milk Pancake Mix and Morinaga Pancake Mix. These ready mix tasted good but I was not satisfied. A friend told me it is easy to make pancakes from scratch, so I tried. Here is an easy peasy recipe which I would like to share, and it tasted very much near to McD's famous hot cakes!

Then, heat up the pan on low fire. 
NOTE: There is no need to oil the pan!!

Heating up the pan.
When the pan is ready, use a ladle to pour the batter. This will ensure that the pancakes produced are of the same size and it will be perfectly round.

Grilling the pancake.
The lid can be closed for about half a minute. When bubbles started to appear on the surface, this means the pancake is ready to be flipped.

Flip over the pancake and cook for another half to 1 minute. Constantly check the based for how well you want the pancake to be cooked and browned.

Continue the grilling process until all the batter are used up.
