American Breakfast Pancake

Always like to try and test different recipe especially pancakes cos its fast to cook and good to eat. This recipe was in my to do list for quite a while, this recipe was from one of Nigella Lawson's book, think is Domestic Goddess, got it from her forum...

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

pinch of salt

1 teaspoon sugar

2 large eggs -- beaten

2tbsp butter -- melted and cooled

1 1/3 cup milkbutter for frying

The easiest way to make these is to put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz. But if you do mix up the batter in a bowl, make a well in the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; then beat in the eggs, melted butter, and milk, and transfer to a pitcher; it's much easier to pour the batter into the pan than to spoon it. I like to leave the batter for 20 minutes before using it; and you may then want to add more milk to the mixture if you're frying in the blini pan, so it runs right to the edges.

When you cook the pancakes, all you need to remember is that when the upper side of the pancake is blistering and bubbling, it's time to cook the second side, and this needs only about one minute, if that.I get 11 blini-pan-sized pancakes out of this, maybe 16 silver-dollar-sized ones on the griddle.

Variation: Sprinkle blueberries onto the uncooked side of the pancake just after you've poured the batter into the pan.
