This morning, I received a rejection email from Pancake Parlour re: my application for a waitressing job with them.
Sad, I made some buttermilk pancakes to console myself.
They were really simple to make. And they were fluffy and yummy. I felt better.
Great with honey, maple syrup, butter or homemade strawberry jam.
Simplest Buttermilk Pancakes
(makes about 10 5-inch pancakes)
1 1/2 cups of self raising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
375 ml buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter
Sift flour into a large bowl. Add in all the other ingredients and beat until batter is of a smooth consistency.
Heat a hot pan with a little butter. Pour a small ladle-full of batter into the pan and cook for about 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear in the batter. Check underside of pancake and flip when nicely brown. Cook another 1-2 minutes until both sides are equally browned.
Repeat until batter finishes.
Serve hot with butter, maple syrup, honey or jam. Or anything you wish.
