Easy Way to Prepare Pancake

Published

on

        A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.

 

Ingredients needed.

  • 1 cup/ 120g pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 can/ 325ml evaporated milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoon margarine or butter melted and cooled
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • sugar icing for serving (optional) 

Items needed.

Whisk, two mixing bowls, pan or griddle, vegetable oil, ladle or measuring cup, large spoon, spatula

Procedure.

  1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar

In a medium-size mixing bowl or large glass measuring cup, whisk together your dry ingredients (or follow directions for premade pancake mix).

2. Mix milk, eggs, and oil

In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (milk, eggs, vegetable oil, or melted butter) until the egg is broken up (this will prevent over mixing in the next step)

3. Mix dry ingredients with wet ingredients

Add the wet ingredients to the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir them together until you stop seeing flour. Remember to not overmix, which makes the batter tough.

Tip: Keep a few lumps in your batter to keep the pancakes tender.

Turn your stove to medium-high heat and place a large skillet or griddle on the burner.

Tip: To test for temperature, sprinkle a few drops of water on the pan. It’s hot enough when the droplets bubble up and evaporate.

5. Add oil to pan

Moisten a paper towel with vegetable oil and use it to lightly wipe the bottom of the pan. This will keep the pancakes from sticking.

6. Pour the batter into the pan

For each pancake, gently pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter into the pan, using a ladle or a measuring cup. Use a spoon to spread the batter into a circle.

Tip: Add pancake fillings, like bananas or sliced peaches, in the circles of batter.

7. Flip the pancakes when the bubbles burst

Once bubbles begin to pop in the pancake’s center, it’s ready to be turned. Insert the entire spatula under the pancake’s middle. Lift the pancake quickly about an inch off the pan’s surface and flip it over.

   Tip: If you’re making pancakes for a large crowd, place them on a wire rack over a baking sheet (to prevent sogginess), and keep pancakes in the oven on low heat (approximately 200 degrees F to 225 degrees F) until you’re ready to serve.

A Rare 2-Headed Turtle Hatches!!!

GhArticles.com has captured an animal version of ‘conjoined twins’ at birth.

According to International media portals,  CBS Boston, the Cape Wildlife Center recently shared a photo of a double-headed diamondback terrapin hatchling. The turtle, which has a condition called bicephaly, hatched at a nesting site in Barnstable. The condition has been described similar to human twins that are conjoined at birth. This particular turtle was born with two heads and six legs.

Cape Wildlife Center said, “Animals with this rare condition don’t always survive very long or live a good quality of life, but these two have given us reason to be optimistic. They have been in our care for just over two weeks and continue to be bright and active.

Wondering Why Your Period Is Late? 4 Easy Ways To Determine What Is Wrong

 

Pregnancy is by far the most common cause of a missed period, but there are some other medical and lifestyle factors that can affect your menstrual cycle.

While being pregnant is a possible reason for a missed period, there may be factors related to your health or lifestyle that are causing the delay.

We bring you some of the reasons why one’s period will be late although she didn’t engage in unprotected sex.

 

Weight loss or weight gain

Whether you’re overweight or underweight, any change in pounds can affect your monthly cycle.

Common health problems linked to weight and irregular menstruation include eating disorder, such as anorexia and bulimia, and uncontrolled diabetes.

If you suspect this might be an issue for you, see your health care provider right away.

Stress

A little stress in your life is fine, but chronic stress can throw your body out of balance. Stress activates the hormone cortisol and pushes your body into survival mode.

If you are experiencing prolonged stress, your body can induce amenorrhea and will prevent menstruation.

 

Breastfeeding

Your period may not make an appearance after your baby is born, but don’t be alarmed!

If you are breastfeeding your little one, a lack of periods is completely normal.

Referred to as lactational amenorrhea, this is a phase that disrupts the rhythm of your menstrual cycle. After a few months, your monthly period should be right back on track.

Sleep schedule changes

Switching to the night shift or traveling to another time zone may prevent your menstrual cycle from starting.

According to a study published in Frontiers in Endocrinology, any disruption to your circadian  rhythm—the internal clock that regulates important cellular process can cause you to experience irregular periods.
