I am teacher at SMA LTI IGM Palembangnow. When I was child my mother told me to be a good wife in future, and one ofthe way to be a good wife is about cooking. It sounds funny but it’s true. That’swhy I am interested in cooking, especially for dessert cakes. I am a huge pancakefan. Pancakes are a type of flat bread, not necessarily sweetened, enjoyed bycultures around the world. Pancake recipes vary, but all have the same basicingredients of flour, eggs and milk. Some countries, like the United States andCanada, serve pancakes for breakfast while others, such as the European regions,serve pancakes as desserts or even side dishes. They are eaten plain, with butter,sprinkled with powdered sugar or filled with pastry, fruit or cheese. Whatever thetradition, pancakes are a truly universal and enjoyable treat. In our country,Indonesia, pancake just like a traditional cake called “martabak” which is Bangkatraditional cake. It tastes sweet and sometime combine with chocolate or sugar.Well, I do have my favorite pancake recipe in my family and I want to share thereciepe to you. The following ingredients will make about 8 - 10 inch (25cm)pancakes (more or fewer, depending on the size). You may change the amounts ofingredients according to the number you wish to serve: 2 cups (18oz/510g) plain or all-purpose flour 2 eggs 1 1/2 cups (350ml) of milk 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Feralia Eka Putri | Teknologi Pendidikan PPS UNSRI 2013 2 2 tablespoons butter or vegetable oil 5 tablespoons sugar (optional) 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt (optional)The first step is cracking eggs into a bowl and beat until fluffy. Add in the dryingredients, (omit baking soda if using self-raising flour), and milk. Do not stirmixture at this point. The second step is melting the butter in a microwave-safebowl. Make sure that its completely melted; about a minute is sufficient. Thethird step is adding the butter and the milk to the mix. Stir gently, leaving somesmall clumps of dry ingredients in the batter. Do not blend until completelysmooth. If your batter is smooth, your pancakes will be tough and flat as opposedto fluffy. The fourth step is heating the frying pan to a medium low flame. If youhave an initial "pancake" setting on your stove, use that. Be sure to use non-stickspray, or a pat of butter so the pancakes wont stick. The fifth step is makingSprinkle a few flecks of water onto your pan. If it dances, or jumps from the panwith a sizzle, the pan is ready for the batter. The sixth step is adding pour about 3tablespoons to 1/4 cup batter from the tip of a large spoon or from a pitcher ontothe hot griddle(Or your greased frying pan). The amount you pour will decide thefinal size of your pancakes. It is best to begin with less batter, and then slowlypour more batter onto the pan to increase the pancake size. The seventh step iscooking for about two minutes or until the pancake is golden. You should seebubbles form and then pop around the edges. When the bubbles at the edge of thebatter pop and a hole is left that does not immediately close up, flip the cakegently. The last step is cooking the other side until golden and remove. If youwant the color more darkness, repeat the steps for another thirty seconds per sideuntil the pancake is done enough for your tastes. Enjoy! Try adding butter, peanutbutter, syrup, jelly, chocolate chips, cookie or candy crumbles or fruit to yourpancakes for a different, more exciting flavor. The varieties are endless. These arethe most delectable pancakes you will ever taste. Actually I have some tips fortopping your pancakes. You can try chocolate chips (milk or dark), try putting bitsof fruit in the batter (strawberries, bananas, blueberries or cherries). Stir in crisp

Instead of using butter or non-stick cooking spray on the pan, trymelted bacon fat, which works great, if you are making bacon at the same time asyou make the pancakes. Last but not the least, make sure not to put on hightemperature, or it will taste raw. Let’s try at home!
