My favourite breakfast will always include American pancakes. Light, fluffy and super-delicious!They're very easy to whip up and will make your friends and family think you've slaved in the kitchen for atleast a few hours.
To serve 6 pancakes:
1 cup flour (maida)

1 cup milk

1 egg (whites separated)

1 tspn vanilla extract

1 tspn baking soda

3 tblspn sugar

1 tblspn oil

1 tspn cinnamon powder (optional)

a pinch of salt

1 tblspn icing sugar (optional)

2 tblspn honey (optional)

Combine all the dry ingredients together.Add the egg yolk to the milk along with the vanilla and oil.In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites till they are frothy.Now mix well the milk and egg yolk to the dry ingredients.Tip in the frothy egg whites and fold it into the batter.Do not whisk.Use a ladelful of batter on to a hot pan. If you do use a non-stick panyou dont have to use butter or oil to grease it. Let it cook for about a min, or till you see small bubbles on the upper side. Now invert the pancake to see a nice golden brown skin on the cooked side, so the other side cooks as well, that shouldtake another 40 sec to a minute. Take it off the pan. Serve hot.

Serving suggestions:

Top the pancakes with honey, or even better maple syrup with a dusting of icing sugar.In the picture given you can see the pancakes have company. You could do the same to make it a complete breakfast or brunch. Scrambled eggs, chicken sausages and a cupcake! That's what we went with. What a start to a great day :)
