Homemade Pancake and Pancake Syrup

"He who goes to bed  hungry dreams of pancakes" ~Proverb

Ta~da!!! This is our breakfast today - Pancake made from scratch and homemade pancake syrup. Try it and you'll be delighted. Cheers! Happy Morning!

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups fresh milk with 2 Tbsp vinegar
2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola oil or any vegetable oil or melted butter

1. In a large bowl, sift or mix together the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt (dry ingredients).

2. In another bowl, combine eggs, sugar, oil, and buttermilk (wet ingredients). Whisk it until well blended.

3. Put the dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Stir or whisk until combined. Do not over beat (over beating will make your pancake tough).

4. Let the mixture rest undisturbed for a couple of minutes, about 5-10 minutes. You'll see tiny bubbles forming into the batter.

5. Brush your skillet or pan with a little oil and heat it over medium-high. Drop 1/3 cup of batter on hot pan. Turn when bubbles form in the surface of the pancake and the sides are little dry. Cook the other side. Serve warm. Put butter and drizzle some syrup.

Homemade Syrup:
(adapted from Delish Megish)

1 cup water
3/4 cup white sugar
1/3 heaping cup light brown sugar
2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Heat the water and sugar in a small, uncovered saucepan at medium-high heat, until it boils, about 4-5 minutes. Make sure to stir occasionally. Once the mixture is smooth and the sugar is melted, turn off the heat. When the mixture starts to cool, stir in either the vanilla.

1. Top your pancakes with fresh fruits like banana or berries.
2. You may also put some chocolate chips or morsels in your pancake batter.
3. Spice up your pancake. Put a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg in the batter.
4. Serve warm. If you don't have syrup or no time to make some, you may put sugar on top of your pancake. This is what Filipino do to their pancakes or hotcakes!

Serving: 10 pancakes

Happy day always,
