Go to the cooking class 101 thread - the basic pancake batter on there is a goodie.

Here you go
Basic pancake batter 1 cup flour;1 tsp baking powder;1/2 tsp salt;1 egg;1 1/2 cups milk;15g of butter, melted;oil for frying. Sift flour, baking powder & salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add egg, milk and melted butter. Using a wooden spoon, gradually draw in the flour. Beat well. Cover and leave to stand one hour. Grease and heat pancake pan. Pour batter into a jug and pour in enough batter while tilting the pan to cover the bottom. Cook until small bubbles appear on the surface, about 1 min, then flip over using a metal spatula. These are lovely layered with a little butter, a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of caster sugar, just layer and repeat
If you are looking for soething in particular - put the details in the box to the left of your screen - as in this case -cooking class 101 and hit anytime and the recipe you are looking for or the thread you are looking for should come up if it is still available.

American Pancakes by Alison Holst - 50g melted butter, 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1. 5 cups self-raising flour, 3 tbsp sugar. Measure ingredients into bowl in order listed. Beat with a rotary beater just until no longer lumpy (do not overbeat! ). I just cook them on my electric frypan - when one side bursts into bubbles turn over and cook until the middle springs back when touched. Serve with butter and maple flavoured syrup and you would think you had them from McD's.

I just use the pikelet recipe from the Edmonds book! Works great!

Buy the buttermilk from the supermarket. . in milk section and follow instructions on packet. I don't use the blueberries or lemon rind though. I love these with bananas, bacon and maple sryup>

I have used that Holst recipe suggested by Zachana for years and years - it is so simply fantastic. Why would you bother mucking about with plain flour and baking powder and leaving to stand for an hour? Makes very little difference to overall taste in my taste tests. Using self-raising and getting straight into the pan is a lot more straightforward on a weekend morning! But ahem, don't be put off by the McDonald's comparison - who are sure to use reconstituted egg powder and all sorts of alien stuff. These pancakes are far superior to what you could ever get there!
