Fluffy Pancake

with honey

When we went to Qatar supermarket last week to buy a few things, I found my husband picking up a box of pancake mix from one of the shelves.  My brows arched but I did not get mad at him.  It's just one of his ways of saying "I want you to make this" or "you haven't been cooking/baking this for a long time", in that case, a pancake.  You know, my husband is a kid trap in an adult body and he behaves like that sometimes around food and me.

The last time I made pancakes was for my nephews and niece and they always like my pancakes. And I haven't made any for the Husband since I got here in Qatar though he'd been requesting me to make pancakes for breakfast for quite a while now.  Two mornings after that, I decided to make pancakes for our breakfast.  Then I did it again on the following morning and again and again and again :-)

Here's my simple recipe for a fluffy pancake that my husband love.  Smothering them with honey is what he likes.


Ingredients :

All Purpose Flour - 1 c
Granulated Sugar - 2 1/2 tbsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp 
Fresh Milk - 2/3 c
Eggs - 2 medium
Sunflower Oil - 2 tbsp

Cooking Procedure :

1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
2. Pour the fresh milk, eggs, and sunflower oil on the dry ingredients and mix using a fork.
3. Heat a non-stick pan, scoop 1/4 or 1/3 cup full of batter and pour it on the pan.  Wait for the bubbles to come out and burst then flip it over to cook the other side until it is brown.

Serve with honey or fruit jams

  1. Hi there- I came across your blog when I was doing a google search for pityrosporum folliculitis, which I am currently dealing with. I would've commented on the exact posting where you talk about your experience with it but I saw it was 3 years ago(!) and wasn't sure you'd see my comment there. I just had a few questions if you don't mind...did the condition ever come back at all after your 10 day treatment? Also, how could it have been caused by the antibiotics you mistakenly received for acne if you had the condition prior to getting the wrong meds? I've been struggling with this condition for over 3 months now because of constant misdiagnoses (acne, staph, you name it. Given all kinds of wrong meds). I finally got the correct diagnosis and was on a 30 day oral course of Nizoral and was ALMOST cured when until I decided to work in the yard in 90 degree Georgia PF flared something awful! Apparently sweat & heat aggravate the condition big time. 3rd question...did yours get worse in the heat and/or with sweat? So now I'm on a 2nd 30 day course of Nizoral and trying very hard not to be outside for too long in the heat but that's a hard task! I'm trying to get to the bottom of how I got this; I know it started when I took massive amounts of flax oil daily. I have since heard that PF feeds on oily skin so I believe there is a connection there. Any insight you can provide would be most helpful! I don't anyone else who has experienced this. Btw, my PF is only on my stomach and between my breasts and isn't quite as bad as yours was, which gives me hope. I can send you my private email if you'd rather contact me there. Thanks so much!

  2. This is Jennifer again...just thought I'd give you my email in case you don't want my comment posted on your main page. It's
    Thanks again!

  3. Hi Jennifer. thank you for reading my blog. I think I failed to mention that I did have acne before having the folliculitis and was actually taking antibiotics for the acne for several months (4 or 5 or 6 months I think) before the red lumps on my chest started showing up. the dermatologist said that it was caused by the antibiotics. I am not in any position at the moment to explain how it did cause it. But the medication the dermatologist gave me was effective and it never recurred thank heavens. My suggestion is for you to get a second opinion from another dermatologist. I know how you'd fell. those bumps were nasty and gross. hope things will go well with you
