Make & Enjoy Tasty Pancakes
Not so long ago my girlfriend decided to make us some pancakes, and I wanted to share her recipe on How to make pancakes with you here on Hubpages. They can be eaten as a teatime snack or as a dessert after a meal or even as a light meal itself.
Take at a look at the recipe here and use it yourself; enjoy the delicious sweet and tangy taste of scrumptious pancakes.
This is a photo of the finished product - there were more in the pan for later. It's enjoyable to eat them when you feel like something sweet and tasty.
She chose the right day to make pancakes, we were both quite hungry and felt like having something different to eat. She came up with the idea of making pancakes and proceeded to do so.
The recipe and various stages of the cooking process and finished items follow here...
The Ingredients and Cooking Utensils Needed
4 Cups of Cake Flour
4 Teaspoons Baking Powder

The Cooking Method
Place the ingredients into a bowl adding the water, mix them with an eggbeater or electric mixer.
Mix them in a blender if you have one.
Place a saucepan or frying pan on a stove hotplate, put a little cooking oil in the pan, turn the stove to a high temperature and heat the oil.
When the oil has heated up, use your ladle (soup-spoon) to put a spoon of the mixture into the pan. This will be enough for one pancake.
Put a large pot with water on the stove, heat the water to simmer, enough to act as a steamer.
Put a plate on top of the pot for steaming purposes.
Bake each pancake in the pan in the oil, turn them over with the spatula (when the edges start lifting up) to cook on both sides, adding about a half a teaspoon of cooking oil for each one. After baking a few pancakes turn the heat down a bit so as not to burn them.
When they are suitably baked place each pancake on the plate on top of the steaming pot and sprinkle 2 to 3 dessert spoons of a mixture of cinnamon and sugar on them. Cover each time you make one with a second plate.
Add your own choice of filling such as mince or marsh-mellows if you wish to.
Roll them up; they are now ready to eat, nicer when still warm!
How to make pancakes is a fairly easy and enjoyable task for those who love cooking and enjoy eating and sharing scrumptious pancakes.
