American pancakes they are soft pancakes that are simple and quick to make. The pancakes originate from the United States, are prepared for breakfast and are very similar to French crepes but smaller, more puffy and thick (about 3-5 mm) thanks to the presence of baking powder. The procedure is very simple, just add the 3 liquid ingredients (milk, egg and melted butter) to the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt and yeast), mix and heat a non-stick pan, pour a few spoonfuls and you're done, in 2 minutes. they will be ready! Here in the house we love them! The real original recipe calls for a tower to form with at least 2-3 pancakes and pour the famous maple syrup on the top, some red fruit and you'll love it, it is an alternative to an Italian breakfast based on croissants or sweets.

How to make American Pancakes
Prepare all the ingredients on the table: in a small bowl combine all the dry ingredients (flour, yeast, sugar, salt). Melt the butter in a saucepan and keep it handy as soon as it has melted.
Put the egg in a bowl and beat it with whips (hand or electric) add the milk and melted butter,
mix and add all the dry ingredients.
Stir again with the whisk for a few minutes until the mixture is smooth and almost fluffy, very similar to a liquid batter.
Let it rest while you prepare the pan, it is important that the pan is non-stick and without scratches (otherwise the pancakes will stick and burn easily); heat the pan well over medium heat to low. Put a piece of butter on a paper napkin and close the napkin into a bundle, press the butter wrapped in the napkin onto the pan so that it melts a little and pass it over the entire already hot surface of the pan.
At this point, take the mixture and with a spoon pour some of it into the pan (I used 1 and a half tablespoons of mixture for each pancakes).
Wait a few moments, bubbles will immediately form on the surface, as soon as bubbles start to break and create holes then that is the right time to turn the pancakes using a non-stick scoop,
cook for a few moments also on the other side, lowering the heat a little.
Place the pancakes on a plate, creating a tower. Repeat the butter operation with the napkin before proceeding with cooking other pancakes. Add a little butter on top of the tower created by the pancakes, a little syrup (maple or sour cherries) and serve still hot. And here are yours pancakes, the famous American pancakes.
