Puffed-up Pancakes

Who doesn't love pancakes?  

About 1 year ago I vowed to never ever eat pancakes made from a box ever again. I won't tell you why because it will scar you for life. I will tell you that it is so easy to do it yourself. Once you start you will never buy that box again.

After you've made them a few times it'll be second nature.

If you have a mixer, lovely. If not, get ready for upper body aerobics.

In your mixing bowl goes 1.5 cups self rising cake flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Whisk on low for a few seconds just to combine.

Make a little ditch in the center of your ingredients and put 1 egg, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 3/4 cup evaporated milk and 1/4 water. Use the paddle attachment or a whisk to slowly mesh the ingredients together. Once combined, turn your mixer on medium-low speed and mix until smooth.

I just want to point out that you can use 1 cup of milk in place of the evap milk and water, but the evaporated milk is a bit richer and silkier in consistency and adds a nice touch to the texture of the pancake. 

In the microwave goes 2 tablespoons butter. Add in the melted butter to your batter and whisk until combined.

Heat up your pan or griddle and cook until those little bubbles pop, flip, cook another minute.

Serve with syrup and fruit :) Lovely.

Don't forget Mickey Mouse if you have a munchkin :)
