Why buy boring Bisquick mix? It is not difficult to make pancakes from scratch, and is actually quite a fun dish to make! Add whatever toppings you'd like and enjoy, this is also a great meal to cook with children! And, since they are made individually, you can mix and match flavors together in one meal.
In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make basic pancakes with syrup, and also 3 variety pancakes--banana, chocolate chip, and pecan--all topped with whipped topping and juicy fresh strawberries--a great meal for breakfast, or any time of the day!
You Will Need:
*1 egg, well-beaten
*1 cup buttermilk (or buttermilk substitute)
*1 tablespoon sugar
*1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
*2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
*2 tablespoons vegetable oil (to oil a large-sized skillet or griddle; I used peanut oil.)
*butter (to serve with basic pancakes)
*half-slices of banana
*mini chocolate chips
Step 1: Mix your ingredients:
In a large mixing bowl, mix 1 well-beaten egg, 1 cup buttermilk, and 1 tablespoon sugar.
Stir in 1 1/4 cups flour, a little at a time, until all four is mixed in.
Add 2 tablespoons melted butter or margarine, and mix well.
The batter will be thick.
Step 2: Spoon batter onto the griddle and cook
For each pancake, spoon about 1/4 cup of batter onto a large hot, lightly greased or oiled skillet or griddle. Each 1/4 cup of batter will make a 4-inch pancake. You may do as many as your skillet or griddle will hold at the same time. Turn the pancakes when the tops are covered with bubbles and the edges are brown. When done on both sides, remove each pancake to a tray that has paper toweling to drain any excess oil. Serve on a serving plate while hot.
*For basic pancakes with syrup, place a 1 tablespoon of butter on top of 2 or 3 hot pancakes and top with *heated* syrup. For specialty pancakes, simply scoop a little less batter onto your skillet and stir in your toppings. S
