Pat a Pancake

You could say, this began as a tussle between an aunt called Jemima and a mom over the pancake recipe!

I’ll take the one with butter in the middle.

For times immemorial, Aunt Jemima has been her constant companion. She has travelled with her in her suitcases to distant, faraway places! Jemima’s pancake mixes have been my daughter’s lifeline for brunch on weekends. So far so good. But then I wanted to give Aunt Jemima a jolt and wanted my daughter to try out my recipe and hoped Aunt Jemima’s pancakes will be a thing of the past.

Mix a pancake; stir a pancake; pop it in a pan….

They may not beat the I-Hop pancakes, but mind you, they are good, smothered in maple syrup! So hop on!

1 tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp oil

Bubbles will appear on top as the pancake cooks – flip it at this stage with a metal spatula and cook for further 1 minute.
