Great for Shrove Tuesday! American pancakes are delicious and quick to prepare, with delicate, light and fluffy texture. Serve them with chocolate sauce, maple syrup or jam, if desired.
- 150 g plain flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 2.5 Tbsp caster sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg
- 350 - 375 ml buttermilk

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt.
