How to Make Pancake Batter
Greetings and welcome to Hoffman Kitchen. Today we’ll be making one of my favorite recipes and that is batter for waffles or pancakes make sure when you choose. This is my family recipe. We’ve been doing it for years since my kid has been young. What we’re going to do we’ll put a big bowl Well put our dry ingredients first. I have 2 cups of biscuit. I use typical Bisquick from Betty Crocker so there’s to cups of Bisquick about 2 tablespoon of sugar.
I use my hands you can measure it. Actually I’ll do 3 tablespoons today. Cinnamon about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon so that’s our, this our dry— I’ll just mix it up a little bit. And now we’re going to add on our wet ingredients and what we have is 2 eggs, I’m going to beat them slightly and on one cup of milk we’ll add on a teaspoon of vanilla extract and we’re going to pour it in to the mixture and I’m going to mix it. What I try to do is just keep on turning not disturbing too much the batter just keep on turning and trying to get rid of the lumps until it’s ready to go.
So we’ve got rid of our lumps in the batter and I’m going to add on 3 tablespoons of melted butter. I have taken my microwave on personally but you can do it with hot water and we just add it on to the batter and mix it in just keep on turning so it’s nice. The butter always give it a nice texture and richness and now we’re going to cover the batter with a towel and we’ll let it rest in a warm place for about a half an hour so our waffle batter has rested for about a half an hour.
Oh it’s nice look how nicely; you can see how the bubbles form there it gives this rhythm nicely rested so we’re ready to put it into our waffle iron. I heated up while it’s nice and hot and smoky. What I do I use pan spray just spray just a touch to make sure the waffles don’t stick and I’m going to take the batter and put more maybe and spread it nice and evenly not too much so it doesn’t overflow and we’ll wait for it to get ready.
Now you can use different waffle irons, his is Belgian. You can use any kind that you have, that’s perfectly fine. As you see the steam is still coming out and the minute it stops, the waffles are basically ready so I think they’re just about done. I like them not too well done. Well here they are, they’re stuck on top which is perfectly fine all you do is come out and here they are beautiful, beautiful.
