best american pancakes

In my last post I talked about funny introvert pickup lines, now I’m going to discuss more serious things. In a matter of three weeks I've gone from hating pancakes to loving them, really thanks to one of my friends who happen to be really great at making pancakes. 

The pancake above was made by the original recipe a couple of days ago (except I used wholemeal spelt flour instead of wheat flour). However, since I came down with the flu three days ago (you know, the I-think-I-might-actually-die-this-time-cause-even-my-eyes-hurt kind of flu) and white sugar is an immune system depressant, I wanted to try and see what happened if I replaced it with honey, which turned out to be absolutely perfect. 
Whatever happened after that - blame the virus - I am not equally proud of. These healthy pancakes ended up being topped with butter, peanut butter, Nutella and bananas. I mean, holy double moral, Batman! 
Pray for me.

These beauties are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinch, dinner and every snack/meal in between. The recipe is good for about 15 pancakes and takes less than 30 minutes to make. Enjoy!

2 1/2  dl // 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar (or honey)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 dl // 1 cup milk (3%)
2 tablespoons butter (melted)
1 organic egg
Butter for cooking

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk together the milk, the melted butter and the egg. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. 
Heat a frying pan on medium heat and add a knob of butter. Spoon about 1 dl // 1/4 cup batter onto the frying pan and turn the pancakes with the tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Repeat until no batter is left!

I like to serve these with fried eggs and strawberries, maple syrup or butter and Nutella. 

If you make these, let me know what you think about them! 
Buen provecho!
