Pancake or hotcake

Another recipe from my dear mother's notebook. She used this recipe during those year when ready-to-mix hotcake mix was not available yet in the market. But if you want to try your hand in making real home-made hotcake, here's the recipe for you. It is a lot cheaper if you do this instead of buying the ready-to-mix hotcake.

1 1/4 cup sifted all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/2 cup mince meat (optional)

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. combine eggs, milk, oil, sugar. mix well. add to dry ingredients with mince meat. stir just until flour is moistened. bake on hot griddle pan.

If you use a frying pan, allow the pan to heat up over low to medium heat. Then brush some melted butter or cooking oil. Pour in about 1/2 cup of dough. Cover and allow to cook. If the sides are dry, turn the pancake for the other side to cook.

Instead of meat, you may use mashed banana (green variety), or grated carrot, or chopped malonggay leaves for vitamin-rich pancakes. Happy eating!

Oops! The syrup? Wait lang...

Ah. tantsahan lang sa proportion. Just mix some water (about 1/4 cup), add some white and brown sugar, add butter or oil, heat over low heat until thick. Or you may use condensed milk as topping and sprinkle some chocolate milk drink in granualted form (Milo).
