Single-Serving Pancakes

I found the recipe for these pancakes here, and they came out awesome. Especially with a tablespoon of maple-flavoured golden syrup.

It's also really simple.  Score! Oh, and, as the name suggests, it's a serving for one person.


1/3 Cup of Plain Flour
1/3 Cup of Water
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Walnut Oil (you can use any kind, really).
Dash of Salt.
A few drops of flavouring (optional - I used almond extract).

1.  Mix all the ingredients together in a measuring jug, and leave to sit for ten minutes.
2.  Using a frying pan on medium heat, cook the pancakes.  I made silver-dollar pancakes - that is, pancakes about 3 inches across.  They look cuter. You can make bigger ones, though.

Perfectly edible, but on the pale side.  This was the first one, and my frying pan wasn't fully heated.

These cook pretty quick.  You should see the top start to bubble, and then you flip.  It should be nicely browned underneath.  If it's pale, turn the heat up, if it's dark, turn it down.

You could add in blueberries, or replace the water with soy or rice milk, or add in cocoa powder, or top them with Worthenshaws or even add a teaspoon of ground flaxseed into the batter for the omega 3s and 6s.
