Look at my Pancakes! I am so happy to get even-coloured Pancakes, at least for one side on each cake. I got the recipe from Allrecipe. After my failed Fried Apple Pie attempt, I learnt a lesson. This time round, I just followed the recipe by using cup measurement for flour. I suspected that it was my wrong conversion of ingredients that had caused the previous failure.

Back to the topic, to get even-coloured Pancakes, flip the pancakes over only when it has become brown (lift a little bit and peep). Refrain from oiling the pan after the first cake, or too often, when you are making more. As for the other side, I still can't achieve the same even-coloured tone. Maybe have to do more experiments next time.


Yields 8 pancakes

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 egg
2 tbsp vegetable oil


Preheat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium-high heat.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the centre.

In a separate bowl, beat together egg, milk and oil.

Pour milk mixture into flour mixture. Beat until smooth.

Pour or scoop the batter onto the hot pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.

Brown on both sides and serve hot.

    Hi Eve! Nice pancakes :) If you are using a non-stick pan, usually oil won't be needed but they cook really fast, so u gotta flip them before they get burnt!

    Thanks Jan, Lin and Ching. I just got my non-stick pan as present last month. Hehe.. So still quite new in making Pancakes. For the potato Pancakes, I added oil for each Pancakes that's why....

    Lin, thanks for telling me that oil won't be needed for non-stick pan. I'll bear that in mind. ;)

    Mike, 1 tbsp of white sugar is included in the ingredients as well? Yes, like Lin has mentioned, there is a little bit of saltiness in Pancakes.

    Fonia, just a bit of saltiness only. I think it shouldn't affect the taste even if you omit it. Del's Pancakes also called for 1 tsp of salt for 2 cups of flour and 1/4 cup of sugar.

    Rachel, *lol* don't have to hide face. We are not trying to teach in our blog, but merely showing what we have learnt from everywhere, and sharing our experience at the same time.
