I'm a happy girl, because I absolutely love these and always get them on roadtrips. I make excuses to get them. I know, it's bad.
I make regular-by-sight pancakes for the kids but always lament that they aren't Maccas hotcakes. Does this make me pathetic? Probably.
But now I've cracked it, finally. It's perfect. I am happy. I never have to go to Maccas to get my fix again! This also makes 10 x 15cm diameter hotcakes for about $2.50. I can live with that too, believe me.
I just hope I don't Overdose.
2 cups plain flour
2 tb caster sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tsp salt
600ml buttermilk (i.e. one carton)
80g butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
Put your buttermilk into your bowl. Sift flour and melt the butter. Then put it all in your mixing bowl and with electric mixer, mix together until a fluffy mixture. (Took me about 3 minutes with a kitchenaid, so about 5 minutes with a hand beater).
Heat your pan on a medium high heat and melt a knob of butter.
Using a ladle, spoon the mixture onto the pan.
Cook for about 2-3 minutes - the top should be quite 'holey' and looking part way to a crumpet.
Then turn over for 1 minute - then serve!
Serve with honey or maple syrup and more butter... and share the recipe with your friends!!
