Heng's Pancakes

All these time, it was usually mom who does all the cooking while I'll be the one who consumes everything and to see me near a stove usually means I'm cooking instant noodles. Last night Timmy was saying something about making pan cakes for breakfast for his parents and I was thinking "Hey, pan cakes aren't that hard to make." so I decided to make pan cakes for my family too.
This morning I got up early and was really eager to make pan cakes for the family, I followed the recipe from the link that Timmy gave me and I managed to make the batter nice and smooth. I my mind's eye I already can see my family enjoying pan cakes.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or
scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake.
Brown on both sides and serve hot.

This is the instructions that I needed to follow to cook the pan cake batter, however I have no idea how but I've intemperate it to "I need 1/4 cup of melt butter to make a pan cake."...
Disaster! 1st pan cake turn out very badly, looked like some one sat on it... so I say to myself, maybe making a round pan cake needs practice and there I was making ugly pan cakes one after another and I didn't have the slightest clue that I have misinterpret an instruction. That's my lesson on using my cellphone as a web browser, the screen is so small that it's very difficult to understand what you are really reading.

Pan cakes from HELL!

I told myself that at least these came from the heart and then it struck me, if these pan cakes came from the heart, I must have a really ugly heart... "Perhaps it just looks ugly but it might taste good." I tooked a bite and spit the thing out... it was salty because I fried it with melt butter. I show it to my mom and she asked what was it?
She took a bite and say "Too salty. Maybe this one will taste better."
Too bad that it wasn't cooked enough... down to the bin it is I guess.

It didn't turn out this time, but I'm certain that I'll be able to make perfect edible pan cakes next time.

Wahahahaha!!! nice try bro! what type of pancake r u trying to make? American pancake or French crêpes as they need different recipes. Let me (the pancake expert) give u some tips la...Don pour the melted butter into the pan! Soak a piece of folded kitchen paper into the melted butter and grease the pan. Don pour them into the pan as u r not 'deepfrying' ur pancakes! wahahaha...
Serve the pancakes with maple syrup or nutella with strawberry... PERFECT!
p/s: I can even flip the pancake on the stove! hehehe~
