"With only six ingredients and two minutes of preparation, you get a perfectly fluffy texture," David said.

Ingredients

- 240g plain flour

- 4 tablespoons sugar

- 4 teaspoons baking powder

- 1 pinch of salt

- 400ml milk

- 4 tablespoons melted butter or vegetable oil

- 2 large eggs

- Assorted toppings such as maple syrup, fresh berries, etc.

Method

- In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

- In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter (or vegetable oil), and egg.

- Pour the dry ingredients into the milk mixture and stir (do not overmix).

- Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat, and coat generously with vegetable oil.

- For each pancake, spoon two or three tablespoons of batter onto the skillet. Cook until the surface of pancakes have some bubbles, about one minute.

- Flip carefully with a thin spatula, and cook until brown on the underside, one to two minutes more.
