Pancake Shapes

Salam Alaikum / Hi readers,
As I am waiting for my new weighing scales to arrive which i purchased from Amazon, I thought I would take a little bit of a baking/Sweet break and I say little, because I managed to fry up some of these delicious and comforting pancakes for my son and i this morning.
This recipe made 5 heart shape pancakes with extras leftover for moi but how many will vary depending on what size, shape cutter you use and how thinly you choose to spread the pancake batter in the pan.

1 cup plain/all-purpose flour
2 tbsp caster/fine sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp - ground all-spice (you could use cinnamon, cardamom basically anything that goes well in cakes)
1 egg
2 tbsp sunflower oil or melted unsalted butter
½ cup milk (I use full fat but the choice is totally yours)
To serve
X amount butter
X amount of sugar or syrup of your choice
1. If you’re using butter melt tbsp and let it cool a little before proceeding.
2. In a large bowl Sieve flour, baking powder, all-spice  and salt together, add sugar and mix (I use a fork for this but a whisk would work too)
3. In a another bowl or a jug, beat the egg, cooled butter and milk together, add this to your dry mix and mix until it just comes together, a few lumps are fine as this will ensure you have light and fluffy pancakes, inshaAllah.
4. To cook - place your frying pan, preferably non-stick on a medium heat. If like me your pan is no longer no-stick, grease pan with a little vegetable oil (not butter, it burns easily) and cook half a ladle full of batter at a time, remember to use the back of the ladle to even out the pancake.  Cook for about 2mins OR until the pancake as browned underneath, flip and continue to cook the other side for another 30 seconds to a minute.
5. Place pancake on a serving plate, using a cookie/sugarpaste cutter (size, shape is up to you) dipped in sugar, stamp out your pancake shape. With a pastry brush, glide over your shape with butter then sprinkle with sugar. Repeat steps 4-5 for remainder of pancake batter.

Ideally serve straight away i.e. don’t keep son waiting while you stand about taking photos lol

I've always wanted the pancake/egg shapers and finally got some heart shapes. And then...they leaked the egg out from under and it did not resemble a heart at all. Maybe they'll work better with pancakes since it's thicker than an egg. I'll have to try, inshallah.

I cut the pancakes into shapes after cooking as i was using a cookie cutter and wasnt sure it would be suitable for use inside the hot pan but im sure inshAllah your egg shapers will work well as this batter is quite thick so doesnt run so quick! <3
