How To Cook > Pancakes


3 large eggs
1 cup flour (122 grams)
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup milk (110 milliliters)
Pinch salt

Yield: 6 Servings

1. Separate the eggs, putting the whites in 1 bowl and the egg yolks into another.

2. Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the egg yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter. Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the batter.

3. Put butter or oil on a medium sized pan, heat on medium heat. Pour in a ½ cup of batter and cook until edges become golden and batter starts to bubble and pop.  Loosen with a spatula and flip pancake over. Continue cooking until both sides are golden.  Remove and serve hot.
