Fluffy Soft Eggless PanCake

I have a big list of to-do's and things to try, so here is the latest completed item from things to try.

Couple of months back McDonald's has started their breakfast menu only at few selected stores and this got added in my things to try list as until them I had never taste pancake or was not aware how they even look like.  As McDonald's breakfast menu is being served only between 7 am to 11 am and I can never think of going out of my house so early on a weekend. So B and I waited for a long time and finally I got a chance to had them as by chance we were there early and breakfast menu was still available in McDonalds.

So we ordered  two Mc-egg burgers and one plate hot pancake with maple syrup. First look at pancake made me thought ohh...they are very similar to the "meethe aatte ka puRa" that my mom used to make for us during rainy season with sunf/ fennel seeds. After finding all these similarities I was quite sure in my mind that I want to try it at home. So my search started and ended at Rak's recipe.

Ok, so let's get started :)

  • 1 cup all purpose flour/ Maida
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Butter and Maple syrup/ Honey for topping

Steps by step instructions for Eggless Pancake:

  • Mix Maida, baking powder, salt, sugar and milk  with a whisk in a deep bowl.
  • Keep it aside for 10 -15 minutes and then give it a quick mix once again.
  • In the mean while heat non stick pan for until it's hot. Once hot turn off the gas and leave  it for 5 minutes.
  • Turn on the heat of non stick pan and set it to Medium.
  • Grease your pan with oil.
  • Now pour one big ladle of batter in the pan and do not spread.
  • Wait until bubbles are gone and pancake changes its color to golden brown. Flip it carefully. You can cover it with a lid for few minutes, this makes pancake extra soft.
  • Let another side get cooked and then transfer it to a serving plate.
  • Serve hot with butter and maple syrup/ honey or syrup of your choice.
  • You can serve cut fruits like banana, apple and any other fruit of your choice along with it.
  • B loved it so much that now he frequently requests pancakes in the morning.
You can make this pancake with atta/ wheat flour, just increase the quantity of milk to get dosa like batter consistency.

I like eating pancake with scrambled egg more than fruits, as now smell problem is gone, but you can make your own choice.

Do share you comments and suggestions and they help me in improving my cooking skills.

Till then happy cooking and healthy living!
