American Pancakes Recipe
This is my son’s favorite recipe: American pancakes. He asks me for them whenever he has the opportunity both for breakfast and for a snack. The pancakes he likes the most are with cocoa cream and he puts on his boots. Sometimes I make him pancakes that are thicker. While I am cooking the pancakes he is eating non-stop as they come out of the pan. I don’t have time to make a lot of more than five pancakes because they disappear.
We can make this recipe with the little ones, they are very excited to mix the ingredients and beat with the rods at full speed. With a little care they can even do it themselves, with the supervision of an adult, my son loves to get on the stove and make his own pancakes, little by little we are letting him make his first steps in the kitchen. Always watching his side I love to see how he enjoys making his pancakes. I encourage you to let the little ones in the house participate to cook with you, it is an activity that motivates them enormously and is extremely fun.

HOW TO MAKE AMERICAN PANCAKES
1 . In a bowl we break the two eggs and mix with the sugar, beat very well until the sugar is completely integrated with the egg.
2 . We will add the melted butter and not hot if we have melted it in the microwave we will have to let it temper since if we put it hot it could get the egg to curdle, we will beat the mixture well.
3 . We will add to the mixture the teaspoon of vanilla essence and the milk, we can use whole, semi or skimmed milk as an observation in case you do not use one or the other. We will beat well.
4 . Before adding the flour to the mixture or I advise sifting with the yeast, we will add the pinch of salt, and once we have sifted everything we will pour it into the bowl where we are making the mixture, stir everything well and mix. We will have to have a thin dough, not too liquid or too thick. We will let the dough rest while we prepare the pan where we will make the American pancakes.
5 . In a small diameter pan we will add a few drops of olive oil or butter and we will clean the pan with kitchen paper, put it over medium heat, when it is hot we will add a saucepan with the help of a ladle.
We will try to always be the same amount so that all the American pancakes come out the same size and thickness, when the pancake begins to have bubbles we will turn it over to make it on the other side.
