butterscotch pancakes

if i were ever to make breakfast in bed for someone , pancakes would be ideal . you could score some points with your loved one by making them from scratch eh ? the ingredients are cheap , they're too simple to make , they taste sinfully wonderful and they're great for light meals as well :

what you need ar?

for the pancake :

1 cup plain flour (measured after sifting)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons of melted butter

for the butterscotch sauce :
2/3 cup brown sugar , lightly packed
2/3 cup cream
2 teaspoons of butter
a dash of vanilla essence (optional)

how liao ?

in a bowl , mix the flour and baking powder well . crack an egg into the mix and stir some more . add the milk and whisk to a near smooth consistency (minimize the flour blobs hor but don't need to whisk until blobs aren't visible anymore lor ) . for a final touch to the batter , add the melted butter (you can do this just by melting butter in a teaspoon over a stove hor) . give it a final whisk and you're batter's ready lor .

to prepare your the pancakes ar , simply line a pan with butter and fry about four tablespoons of batter per pancake over a low fire . flip when they seem easily mobile (not stuck to the pan lor) . it should take no more than 40 seconds per side hor . the batter should provide you a six pancake stack with just a tablespoon to spare . just nice for two people (or one of me) .

for the sauce , simply heat the brown sugar , cream and butter in a pan for at least five minutes over a low fire (same fire as for pancakes lor) . it should have a nice creamy consistency and leave your house smelling all sweet and heavenly . turn off the fire and add the vanilla essence , watch it sizzle and enjoy the fragrance . pour the sauce over your pancake stack liao .

serve with scoops of ice cream if you want (like i did with my experimental batch awhile ago) :

i bet you're drooling already aren't you ?
