Awhile back I posted my list of goals for age twenty, and one of the more mundane ones was to memorize a pancake recipe. Luckily, at this altitude (~9000 feet), it is only the baking times and proportions which need to be adjusted. Stovetop cooking recipes are all fair game, so I’ll share my newest recipe here with all of you so unlucky as to not be with me in Peru. Hopefully, by the time I get back home, I’ll be able to make the recipe by sight even faster than I can now.
- Butter or margarine for frying
- ½ cup white flour
- 2 large eggs
- Whole milk to consistency (start with 3-4 tablespoons)
- *Optional: banana or other fruit slices
- *Optional: Sugar or spices on top
- Spatula for flipping the ‘cakes
- A large frying pan
To make your pancakes, melt a tablespoon of butter on medium-low heat on the stovetop, and then just add all the ingredients together in a bowl, whisking for about one minute & adding more milk if needed. Pour your batter into three cakes on top of the pan; this is when you should add your fruit or spices on top. Cook them until small bubbles form on top of each pancake, about 2-3 minutes. Flip them over with a spatuala and cook on the other side for two more minutes, and then plate & serve.
Enjoy your day! 🙂
