    Default pancakes

    As my partner was called out to a road accident I only had about 20
    minutes to cook him breakfast.
    He loved them

    Ingredients:
    half cup of flour
    3/4 cup milk
    2 eggs

    I Sifted flour into a bowl
    Lightly beat the eggs and stir them into the flour until the mix is
    smooth.
    Slowly add milk and stir untill a nice smooth batter.
    Leave the mix for 30 min.
    Heat a pan and grease well.
    Have hotplate on medium.
    Pour a couple of tablespoons of mixture in and swirl it to make it
    round.
    When it bubbles a bit on top, flip.
    Cook reverse side, remove.
    stack cooked ones on a plate as to stay warm.
    They were thin like crepes and sweet.

    Sam liked them with sugar.

    You had 20 minutes to cook breakfast but let the mix rest for 30
    minutes. How did that work out?

    There's no leavening so letting it rest doesn't matter anyway, they
    won't be cakes. -aem

    Crepes don't have leavening either, but they have a fair amount of
    melted butter in the batter. Frankly, the OP's "pancakes don't sound
    very appealing.

    Eggs are often used as a way to leaven. I don't use baking powder in
    my souffle.

    ****. Ever think of that?

    Is that leavening? I thought leavening was the production of gases that
    cause something to rise, like the CO2 produced by yeast or through the
    chemical reaction of baking soda or powder. Beaten egg whites forms air
    bubbles that expand a bit and give a lighter texture to the product, but
    it doesn't produce the gas.
