do you buy a premix batter for pancakes? try out this fluffy homemade pancake recipe and you will never buy one again. my daughter-in-law brought the premix from mexico. and when i served my fluffy homemade pancakes, the premix was relegated to the back of the pantry shelf.

pancake trivia

Canadian Maple syrup

pancakes have a long history, dated back to thousands of years and of being cooked on stones. pancakes are prevalent in every culture. a thin flat almost cake-like texture made from batter. and cooked on a griddle is almost like our very own meetha pooda. the basic batter is made of eggs, flour, milk and melted butter. sometimes, the batter is made from buttermilk. just like my mom used to add a little yoghurt in the pooda. usually, pancakes are drizzled with maple syrup. and i am making good use of the original maple syrup my friend got me from canada.

interestingly the first ready-mix food that was sold commercially was aunt jemima pancake flour .this was as far back as in 1889 in st. joseph, missouri. amusingly, in france, if you “touch the handle of the frying pan holding a coin in one hand and make a wish while the pancake is turned your wish would be granted.”

baking powder is used for leavening. different types of flour like wheat can be used as all-purpose flour is said to be unhealthy, so i mix wheat flour and flour. you can make banana pancakes too just by adding mashed banana to the batter or you can add other fruits too. the batter can be made in a jiffy with simple ingredients found in every kitchen. the cooking time is also short and can be made like a regular breakfast and not limit it to a special occasion.

I love cooking generally, but the pleasure in making them for my grandsons is immeasurable. i told Arian, i was going to make him mickey mouse pancakes. and he said: “make me a heart shape too gma!”

if you are looking for a healthier pancake recipe then the beetroot pancake is just right for you.

after making some round pancakes for karina, my daughter-in-law, i went about making mickey mouse and heart-shaped ones for the apples of my eye and they just devoured them.

  13. Cindy Fox says:

    Thanks for sharing, Harjeet! I have seldom made pancakes from a mix and prepare my own. Now I’m intrigued by your recipe. Who doesn’t love fluffy pancakes! I definitely want fluffier pancakes. I like to make the shapes but the batter always runs out. What am I doing wrong that this happens? Is it my recipe is too runny?
    Adding the pureed fruit is definitely going to be a nice bonus too.

    • Harjeet Kaur says:

      It is my pleasure Cindy…thanks for stopping by…when u add the milk add it slowly and mix so that u get a perfect batter. It shouldn’t flow it shud be dropping consistency.

  14. I usually add over-ripened banana mash when I make a vegetarian version of these. But egg ones are my son and hubby’s favourite. Loved the little tale that you have added regarding pancakes .It was amazing to know about it. Would love to know about demarara sugar never heard of this.

    • Harjeet Kaur says:

      Thanks Debi…it is just brown sugar with a fancy name….I barely use white sugar..this isn’t processed or refined

  15. Love all those shapes you made the pancakes in! Got to get me some cookie cutters after this lockdown lifts. The children will adore them!

  16. Ah, thank you so much for this.. I tried pancake few days back and it didn’t turn out fluffy. will follow your recipe now.

  17. Love pancakes. I am afraid I disgraced myself and dribbled whilst I read this. Your grandsons request for heart shaped pancakes made me remember being home from boarding school and mum dishing up a pile of freshly homemade pancakes. We ate like we hadn’t for months. Sooooo delish. Thank you for reminding me about this delightful dish.

    • Harjeet Kaur says:

      My pleasure dear…mom made pancakes are always the best.My grandsons are here due to the lockdown and I am enjoying every minute with them
