(No offence intended, but y’know it was pancake madness when I was writing it, and I may be on a bit of a maple syrup high! It’s an IT crowd reference actually… Because I’m a bit of a nerd.)
So yeah, recipe day, has to be Pancakes, I know I know it’s a day late, but you know you can have them year round!
So, yeah we made two, yes TWO different types of pancakes last night, which was fun!
Isn’t pancake a funny looking word…
First of all – Pancakes (English pancakes? I don’t know, Traditional pancakes? You tell me!)
- 120g/4oz plain flour
- pinch salt
- 2 free-range eggs
- 210ml/7fl oz milk
- 90ml/3fl oz water
- 1 tbsp oil (vegetable or sunflower)
- butter, for frying
Mix together the dry ingredients, and make a well in the centre, and add the eggs. Mix together.
Combine the milk and water and gradually add it to the mixture, and finally add the oil.
Leave batter mix to stand for 30 minutes or longer.
Heat a knob of butter in a frying pan (HOT) and pour in ladle-full of the mixture, swishing it around the pan to get an even layer.
When both sides are cooked put on a plate, either keep these warm or eat as you go!
Top with whatever you like, here is what we gathered:
The second make of the evening was my personal favourite/I’m still learning how to do this so they end up looking a bit rubbish but still taste good:
125g Plain Flour
1 medium Egg
3 Tbsp Caster Sugar
pinch or two of salt
2 Tbsp softened butter
4 tsp Baking Powder
Mix ingredients as before
Melt butter in pan as before
Basically, yeah the method is the same!
Hope you have a great Wednesday, don’t work too hard.
