Saturday breakfast are always the best since I’m never in a rush to prepare breakfast so I get to try something elaborate.
Last Saturday was no different, I woke up in the mood for pancakes, normally i make lemon pancakes by just adding some lemon zest and juice in the batter but this time I decided to try cinnamon as the main flavour.
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 tbsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
400ml of water
oil for frying
In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients.
(forgot to take pics )
In a jug mix all your wet ingredients. Then make a well in the bowl with dry ingredients then pour in the liquid and combine. The consistency of the batter is left to your preference. I like my pancakes fluffy so I left the batter to be a bit thick. Don’t worry about any lumps formed, I’ve read that they aid in fluffiness..not sure about that though.
Then i transferred the batter into the measuring jug that way it will be easy to pour the batter onto the pan.
Heat some oil on a pan. Then add the batter
Wait till bubbles have formed then flip them over for the other side to cook.
See how golden they look, perfect american pancakes.
We love sprinkling honey over them
Best pancakes I’ve made thus far *victory dance*. They were fluffy and the taste of cinnamon was just on point.
Hubby loved them.
If I could do it over again:
Wouldn’t change a thing
Note: When using cinnamon, always use small quantities since it has quite a strong taste and anything more than a teaspoon would be too overpowering.
