    Американские панкейки

    Those who first see American pancakes in the photo and get acquainted with their cooking recipe involuntarily recall our native Russian pancakes. Indeed, in appearance they are very similar to each other: small, round, lush and ruddy. But these flour products differ in taste and structure. The taste of pancakes is similar to pancakes, and pancakes are more like soft cookies, sponge cake or waffles. The composition of the ingredients is almost the same, with the exception of a few components that are present in the dough for pancakes, but are never used for pancakes.

    What then is the reason for the different tastes? Firstly, the taste of a dish depends on the sequence and method of mixing the ingredients, as well as on the temperature of the products used. Secondly, the process of frying or baking is of great importance. So, for example, pancakes are fried in a pan in which not a small amount of vegetable oil is preheated. For frying American pancakes (or rather, for baking pancakes), a completely dry frying pan is used. Thanks to this, the surface is evenly fried, and pastries are not saturated with excess fat. Burning of products during the frying process is excluded, since a small amount of vegetable oil is added to the dough.

    History of pancakes

    This culinary product is a traditional dish in its homeland. Over time, the recipe for American pancakes, or pancakes, began to spread in other countries, gaining more and more popularity. Hostesses are happy to prepare such a treat at home for breakfast. Children and adults are delighted with miniature pancakes. This pastry occupies the main positions in the menu of most cafes and restaurants.

    The origin of the American pancake recipe remains unknown. However, in the United States and Canada, people cannot imagine breakfast without this dessert. The Americans even invented a special frying pan for pancakes, with which the products are baked on both sides at once and there is no need to turn the pancakes over. Fragrant pancakes are an integral part of the morning meal in these countries. The treat is poured abundantly with sweet syrup, honey or jam, stacked in a stack of 3-5 pieces and served with various additives: fresh berries, fruits, nuts, chocolate.

    The name "pancakes" is translated as "cake in a pan", which in fact is the case. Flour products are prepared from milk-based dough, with the obligatory addition of butter. Optionally, additional additives are mixed into the dough: jam, raisins, cocoa, etc. Depending on the ingredients used, you can get banana, chocolate, coffee, diet and other pancake options. The minimum thickness of a baked pancake is 0.5 cm. Today we will cook American pancake pancakes according to a classic recipe with a photo.
