pancake recipe for one.
Introduction: Sometimes you just want to make yourself a quick and easy breakfast, and pancakes are the perfect solution. However, most pancake recipes yield enough for a family or a group of friends, which can be wasteful if you’re only cooking for yourself. In this article, we will provide you with a recipe for fluffy pancakes that will make just enough for one serving.
Fluffy Pancakes for One: This recipe yields 3-4 pancakes and takes about 10 minutes to make.
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until they are thoroughly combined.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps.
- Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Lightly coat the pan with cooking spray or butter.
- Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, scoop the batter and pour it onto the pan. Cook until the edges start to look dry and the surface is covered in bubbles, about 2-3 minutes.
- Flip the pancake and cook for an additional minute, or until the other side is golden brown.
- Remove the pancake from the pan and place it on a plate.
- Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more cooking spray or butter as needed.
- If you don’t have buttermilk, you can make your own by adding 1/2 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to 1/2 cup of milk. Let it sit for a few minutes before using.
- If you want to add some flavor to your pancakes, try adding a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg to the batter.
- To keep your pancakes warm while you cook the rest of the batch, place them on a plate in a warm oven (set to 200°F) until you’re ready to serve.
Conclusion: Pancakes for one are a quick and easy breakfast option that can be made with simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. This recipe is a great starting point, but feel free to experiment with different flours, sweeteners, and flavorings to make them your own.
