The best way to feel like a pro chef on a late Sunday morning is to whisk some batter and flip a few pancakes for a cozy brunch. Well, it works for me and with my new Gotham steel, things have been going really smooth lately. I looked at quite a few sets for myself before buying one, so I also did a review of these pans later. (You can read it here) These pancakes are really easy to make and the best bit is when you flip them. That accomplishment is just priceless and so I decided to guide you through the steps of making a batch of some really sumptuous pancakes on a Gotham Steel pan.
Pancakes On A Gotham Steel Pan
- Refined Flour- 1 cup
- Milk- 1 cup
- Butter- 4 tablespoons
- Sugar- 1 tablespoon
- Baking powder- 2 teaspoons
- Eggs- 1
- Maple Syrup
- To start with, you would need flour. I hope you have the ingredients ready. Make sure your flour is properly sieved and isn’t very old. It’s also advisable that you refrigerate your flour to save it from unwanted pests.
- You need to get a bowl and put the flour in the right quantity. The quantity given in the ingredients section above only goes for 4-5 pancakes. So, if you’re cooking for a bigger crowd or your family, then it’s better to reconsider the amount you’re using.
- I do this in a different way that makes these pancakes fluffier and well, who doesn’t like the browned-up tops and the soft insides.
- In a saucepan, pour the milk and add butter to it. Now, place it on the stove top and let it warm so the butter is melted and mixed up in the milk thoroughly. Make sure you don’t boil the milk. These precise details matter a lot while cooking. After all, it’s an art that needs finessing constantly.
- On the other side where you have the bowl of flour ready, add a pinch of salt in it. Well, whenever there’s batter, there’s salt. Whether you’re going to bake a cake or a pie, salt brings out the flavor of other ingredients in the recipe. (Don’t believe me? Check out this confectionary and baking products study)
- After this, add sugar to the bowl which is equally important in pancakes. I have a sweet tooth and I dig desserts big time. So, I have a soft corner for sugar.
- 2 tablespoons of baking powder because we want our batter to rise and when baking soda is mixed with acidic ingredients, it reacts. Well, in a good way so, we get the fluffiest baked dishes ever. If you want more information on this, then do check out this article.
- Now, you do the cliché that is to crack the egg against the side of the bowl. Well done!
- I hope you haven’t forgotten about the milk on your stove. We’re finally going to use it as the wet ingredient to create a mixture.
- Carefully, pour the milk into the bowl as you whisk the egg altogether. This really gets tough because we’re using both hands and even I had to stop in the middle to figure out a proper way of doing it. But all that matters is a thoroughly mixed batter that is ready to cook.
- After this is over, our Gotham pans enter the scene. It’s necessary that you preheat the pan before starting off. Also, it would be even better if you already seasoned your pan.
- As chef Daniel Green claims, it doesn’t really need butter or oil. In addition to that, we already added a lot of butter in the batter so that would not be necessary.
- You need to pour the batter into the pan and make sure it spreads evenly. You should let it cook for sometime and when you feel the other side is browned and cooked properly, then is the time to flip it.
- And if you’re confused about when to flip, you’ll just know because you will be able to scrape it off effortlessly when the time comes.
- After the grand flip, let the other side cook for some time too and when you observe it gets the ideal brown, take it out of the pan and try cooking some more. I know the first one gets a little messed up but as you move further, you actually never want to stop. With me, it’s always been like that.
- Serve your pancakes fresh on a dish and for the topping, MAPLE SYRUP!! That’s the classic pancake topping but you can also try out others too. Like I read about some really cool toppings in this post.
- I also seasoned mine with some blueberries and strawberries which looked absolutely delicious. These pancakes are super easy to make and my way of making these is a little different than the regular ones you usually make. But hey! They’re just as amazing and who knows? Even better. So, I’ll be glad if you guys try these pancakes on your Gotham Steel pan and let me know how amazing they turned out. (DUH!) My mouth’s watering and I can’t wait to savor them already so, see you later!
