The weekend is almost here and it’s never too early to start preparing for a great one. If you’ve invited her over, then you know that you definitely need to impress her with your cooking skills. One of the simplest ways to do that is with golden, fluffy pancakes in the morning. Here’s what you need to know about how to make pancakes for her.
Getting the ingredients
When thinking about how to make pancakes, preparation is key. You need to have all the ingredients ready in advance. The basic ingredients needed are:
- vegetable oil
- melted butter
- baking powder
- milk or yogurt (Some recipes call for buttermilk, which is basically maziwa lala. You can make your own by adding a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice to milk.)
- For extra flavor, you can add some vanilla essence or cinnamon to the batter.
- Some of the equipment you’ll use includes mixing bowls, spoons and mixers, as well as a non stick pan.
It’s all in the batter
If you’re still learning how to make pancakes, the batter is usually the make or break part. One wrong move and your pancakes will come out looking like something no one would eat, especially your girl. The trick is to mix the wet and dry ingredients separately before folding them into each other. In addition, sieve the dry ingredients first so that air trapped inside makes your pancakes fluffy. Be sure to not over mix batter so that it doesn’t become flat.
Pancake cooking times depend on a lot of factors, including how thick it is and how hot your pan is. One constant in how to make pancakes is that you have to stay close because things can go wrong really first. Make sure that the oil is hot enough before you add the batter to the pan. You can spread around but don’t pat it down. You can flip the pancake only when you see that bubbles have formed on the top part.
So you made the perfect golden fluffy pancakes for her. Now what’s next? It’s now time to serve her, but not just in the kawaida kawaida way you’re used to. You need to think about how to make pancakes more special. One way to do this is by topping them with honey or syrup, as well as serving them with fruit chunks on top. You can also sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of the hot pancakes so that they melt and make your pancakes even better.
All the hassle of figuring out how to make pancakes will finally be worth it once you seat down to dig in. If you’ve done a good job, she’ll probably not stop at one and you’ll be making the morning after breakfast from now on. Make sure to eat the pancakes while they’re still hot.
