Hotcakes

This recipe comes from one of the many spin-offs from the Little House series, "Little House in Brookfield: The Caroline years", that tells the story of the childhood of Caroline, the mother of Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace. They are really just a variant on pancakes, but the batter is slightly stiffer, and a little sweeter.



Ingredients
300g plain flour
25g sugar
1 tbsps baking powder
300 ml milk
4 tbsps melted butter
1 large egg
1 tsps vanilla extract

Method

  1. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix until you have a stiff but fairly smooth batter.
  2. Heat a large heavy-bottomed frying pan, and grease it well. Add large spoonfuls of the batter, cook until golden brown, turn and cook the other side as well.
  3. Serve with the topping of your choice - maple syrup, strawberry jam, whipped cream or melted chocolate.
