American-style Pancakes

October 6, 2010

A Jamie Oliver  recipe worth trying. These are incredibly light due to the beaten egg whites. An additional step but worth the extra washing up! These are delicious served with sliced banana, natural yoghurt and a drizzle of honey.

Ingredients:

3 large eggs
115g/4oz plain flour
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
140ml/5fl oz milk
a pinch of salt

Method:

First separate the eggs, putting the whites into one bowl and the yolks into another.

Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter.

Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the batter – it is now ready to use.

Heat a good non-stick pan on a medium heat. Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes until it starts to look golden and firm. Loosen with a spatula and flip the pancake over. Continue frying until both sides are golden.

Serve with your favourite topping.
