Pancake...My Kids' Latest Crave

A pancake is frying in the pan the moment I'm writing this. I've prepared the batter, my ten-year old Along is helping me frying it.

We just had dinner an hour ago but Along, Ain and Apit want to eat pancakes. This winter could have caused their metabolism rate to be higher than usual he he.

This pancake recipe is the best I've ever tried so far - the simplest but yet delicious. It's much tastier and fluffier than the ready made one bought from a supermaket especially when you eat it hot yumm... You've got to try it to believe it...



1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil /melted shortening

1/2 cup chocolate chip (optional)


Heat your frying pan. No need butter if it's a non-stick pan. Mix all the ingredients (except choc chips) together in a mixer @ food processor @ even simple blender. Mix in choc chips if using. Pour a scoopful over the pan. Cook 1 minute each side. Ready to eat.....
(Thank you drNO for the recipe :-) )
* I just use a whisk instead of a mixer or a blender. The choc chips, I sprinkle onto the pancake instead of mixing them in the batter.

You'll get 9 pieces of cute little pancakes from this recipe in just half an hour. Worth trying.

As for my family, they like their pancakes to be served with :
Hubby - peanut butter
Along - with choc chips, butter with pancake syrup, Hershey's syrup, Nutella and milo.
Apit and Ain - with choc chips and milo.
Yours truly - butter with pancake syrup and Nutella.

This pancake is not only suitable for breakfast but also for tea and supper. For Along, Ain, Apit and their father, they'd like to have it bila-bila teragak aje. Lately, they even want me to make it almost everyday. Even so, Along and Ain don't want to bring this pancake in their lunchbox to school because they said...dah sejuk kurang umphh.
