Easy Classic Pancake Recipe (Old fashioned pancakes)

The classic pancake is the easiest type of breakfast to whip up in the kitchen. There are many variations when it comes to making pancakes such as; Our very own Naija pancake which most people make with lots of sugar and oil plus additional ingredients such as pepper and onion, Masa which is simply rice puffs but made in a special pan which makes it a pan cake, Crepes which is very flat and can be rolled or folded however you want and so on. Now what makes the classic pancake different from the other pancakes mentioned is the texture which is distinct with a cake like feel. Pancakes are easy to prepare and don't require much work. Also, please note that you are required to just grease the pan with a little oil. This is one of the reasons why a non-Stick pan would come in handy for this meal. Pancakes can be eaten plain, drizzled with honey or syrup, topped with berries, butter jam etc depending on individual choice. Here's how it's made

    I like this recipe but a quick question. Do you really mean 2 tablespoons of baking powder to one and a half cup of flour? Or is it 2 TEASPOONS baking powder? Thanks

    1. Hi teekay, thanks for bringing my attention to the typo. It's actually two and half heaped cups of flour.
