"AMERICAN PANCAKES" are absolutely marvelous! I just love their sponginess and thickness...

Here's a Anne Wilson recipe I took from her book "The Family circle Recipe Encyclopedia". I hope you'll have fun making it!

Makes 10 pancakes

300g self-raising flour
1/4 baking powder
250ml Milk
2 Tbsp Light runny honey
2 Eggs (~50g), lightly beaten
45g Melted butter

1. Sieve the flour and baking soda in a bowl; make a well in the center.
2. In another bowl mix the milk, honey, eggs, and the butter.
3. Add to the flour and beat/whisk until there are no more lumps left.
4. Heat up a frying pan, butter it and add 2 tablesponns of the batter, making sure to form a nice circle.
5. Cook 2 minutes on medium heat until it is nice and golden, then turn and cook for around one minute.
6. Transfer pancakes to a plate and cover with a cloth. Keep warm.

The batter should be quite thick.
Since the batter thickens when it is set aside for a while, you will have to add a little more milk from time to time.

Serving suggestions:
Serve the pancakes with light runny honey, maple syrup and/or with creamed butter.
