American pancakes


I tend to “ruin” American food by not adding as much sugar or spice to it as I “should.” Don’t be surprised if this is bland. Also, stoves are fun but dangerous; don’t burn yourself.


  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk, or 1 1/2 cups skim milk and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (That is, (1.5 cups whole milk) || (1.5 cups skim milk + 1 tablespoon vegetable oil))
  • 1/4 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 to 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Additional materials:

  • 1 large bowl
  • 1 mixer
  • 1 pan/girdle
  • 1 spatula
  • 1 big spoon/small ladle
  • 1 stove


  1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in the bowl.
  2. Add the milk and eggs to the mixture.
  3. Mix the product (with the mixer) until it is smooth and bubbly.
  4. Put the pan on the stove and turn the stove on, to medium heat. Pour the vegetable oil onto the pan.
  5. Make pancakes! Pour the mixture onto the pan, one big spoonful (about 1/4 cup) per pancake per time. Cook until the top of the pancake is covered in bubbles and the bottom is lightly browned. Flip and cook until the bottom is again lightly browned.
  6. Eat.
