Cheddar Cheese Pancakes


This is my last post for Bake-Along’s 4th Anniversary.  It has been a wonderful bake.  Cheese is always the invite list.  It can make almost anything taste delicious. 

My 2 boys love pancakes.  Pancake is wonderfully simple to make.  The basic batter is so versatile.  You really can get creative with it.  My 2 boys love to eat with butter or cheese and of course, they won’t go without drizzle a good quality of maple syrup or melted chocolate.

There was some leftover (about 70g) shredded cheddar cheese in the fridge so I decided to put them all into the batter.  But my sons think they are not cheesy enough and decided to eat with cream cheese spread. 

Oh no!  These Cheddar Cheese Pancakes were so sinfully delicious especially when it served with good quality maple syrup. 

INGREDIENT (Adapted from Martha Stewart)
(about 7 pcs)

1 cup       All-purpose flour (I used Low Gluten Flour)
2 tbsp      Sugar (I used raw sugar)
2 tsp        Baking powder
½ tsp       Salt
1 cup       Milk
2 tbsp      Unsalted butter or vegetable oil.
1 no.        Large egg
70g         Shredded Cheddar Cheese

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.  In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or oil), and egg. 

Add dry ingredients and shredded cheese to milk mixture; whisk until just moistened (do not overmix; a few small lumps are fine.)

Heat a large skillet (non-stick or cast-iron) or griddle over medium.  Fold a sheet of paper towel in half, and moisten with oil; carefully rub skillet with oiled paper towel.

For each pancake, spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter onto skillet, using the back of the spoon spread batter into a round.  (I used a ladle which just nice to fit 1 into my non-stick small frying pan.)

Cook until surface of pancake has some bubbles and a few have burst.  Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until browned on the underside.  For my frying pan size and the size of my ladle, I made up to 7 pcs.  Serve warm, with desired toppings.

Once again, thanks to 3 beautiful ladies from Kitchen Flavours, Bake For Happy Kids and Frozen Wings, for making Bake-Along thus far.
