Hotcake (Pancake)

I don't know if it is just with my family but we eat hotcake mostly snacktime in the afternoon rather than at breakfast. I've experimented with hotcake recipes trial and error you could say. So far everybody loved this particular fluffy recipe specially the foreign visitors we have. I hope you guys would try them too. For fluffy pancake batter is thicker.

Ingredients: makes 20 pancake (like the size in the photo)

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup cake flour
6 tsp. baking powder
2/3 cup sugar
2 whole eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. melted margarine or butter


* Sift together flours, baking powder, sugar and salt. Set aside. Mix milk and water
* Beat eggs , add the vanilla and then add the milk and melted margarine. Mix well then add the flour and mix well until lumps disappear.
* cook as you would regularly. Stir once in a while as you cook.

According to my sister she cooks the pancake and then freezes them, when she needs it she would just pop it in the microwave and it turns out as if you just cooked it. Thicker batter would make fluffier pancakes. You can also add mashed bananas or cinnamon. Just experiment. Happy eating. If you don't have cake flour all purpose flour would be ok too. With the milk you can use fresh milk or evaporated. You can omit the water and use 2 cups of milk if you like.
