Perfect Sunday Pancakes

The last time I ate American-style pancakes was in Boracay, Philippines, at the Boracay Beach Club. I like my pancakes thick, and fat, with a tiny scoop of butter and strawberries, and drizzled generously in maple syrup with freshly-squeezed orange juice by the side.

Sundays are meant to be pancake days, for a lazy brunch and an afternoon full of rest.

Here’s the recipe I borrowed and amended a little from Honey and Jam

Perfect Pancakes

1) 1 3/4 cup of self-raising flour
2) 1 tablespoon of sugar
3) 1 egg, beaten
4) 3 tablespoon melted butter

1) Combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in e mixing bowl, whisking to combine
2) Add egg and butter, stirring lightly
3) Add milk and whisk, but not too much or the pancakes may taste rubbery

7) Serve warm, topped with some butter and maple syrup

      They tasted great – especially with the strawberries & maple syrup! we wanted to add whipped cream too but didnt have cream at home! but if you do have whipped cream – they would go beautiful with the strawberries :)
