Pancake Without Baking Powder 无发粉松饼
This was made in December last year. I found the drafted recipe in Word document while doing some housekeeping for my laptop.
If you are concerned about the leavening agent used in pancake, this recipe is for you especially if you are making for your toddlers. The texture of this pancake is lighter than the usual pancake made with baking powder in my opinion.
Pancake Without Baking Powder
2 tbsp sugar
¼ tsp salt
120ml (½ cup) milk
¼ tsp vanilla extract
120g cake flour
2 tbsp vegetable oil/ melted butter
1) Soak egg with shell in warm water till around 40C (when touch, it feel like body temperature). Beat egg, sugar and salt till ribbon stage (triple in volume). You can also place the mixing bowl on top of a bowl of warm water while beating.
2) Fold in sifted flour alternate with milk/vanilla extract. Lastly, add oil and mix well.
3) Preheat non-stick pan (it’s up to you if you want to grease the pan, I used Happycall pan and I didn’t grease my pan). Add ¼ cup of batter on pan, let batter spread by itself. Cook till brown on one side, flip and continue to cook. (If using Happy call pan, each time can cook 2 pancakes, close the lid with magnet and flip manually when one side becomes brown. Pancake is cooked faster than using normal pan).
