While I was at grocery shopping, I saw this little item.

I had to get it! Pancakes, no pan or cooking required. And it’s American! Whohoo. Until now, I never thought about pancakes being American style or not. It was ok. Very sweet and fluffy.

So all this got me inspired making my own “American Pancakes.”

I found this simple recipe on the internet, of course. Internet is like a giant cookbook! UnQAed cookbook that is. I have made some hideous food out of the unQAed internet cookbook.

Anyway, here’s the recipe if you feel so inspired not to eat out of the packet. It’s not hard and it’s fun!

American Style Pancake


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the milk, egg and melted butter; mix until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

So, I didn’t have plain flour, so I used some self rising flour and omitted salt and baking powder. Also, don’t heat up the pan too hot, you will end up with a burnt mess. The pancakes got butter in it so it didn’t really stick to the pan.

Here are some photo evidence of this yummy yummy goodness.

Being cooked!
