One of our favourite days of the year is here at last: Pancake Day.
Whether you had pancakes for breakfast, you’re making them for lunch – or going all out with a 12 cake pancake-fest for your dinner this evening, check out our positively delicious yet easy to follow foolproof pancake recipe. With (quite a few) serving suggestions included at the end which we recommend you positively heap on top. Yum.
Pancake Recipe – Makes About 12 Small Pancakes (double accordingly!)
You will need:
100g white plain flour
1 teaspoon olive oil (plus a bit more just for greasing the pan!)
5 Step Method:
1: Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in he centre and break in the egg
2: Add a little milk and stir gently. Add the rest of the milk slowly and stir until smooth. Stir in the water and oil and beat for one minute.
3: Heat a drop of oil in an omelette pan. When the pan is really hot, pour in about 3 tablespoons of batter. Cook for just under one minute, using a spatula to keep an eye on how it’s cooking.
4: Now the FUN part – try to flip it. *If you’re dropping too many and when it’s no longer funny (and wasted pancakes rarely are to be fair) – just use the spatula to turn it over.
5: Cook the other side for roughly 15 seconds.
If you’re making a whole stack for a crowd and you (naturally) want to eat together, simply stack the pancakes on a warmed plate as you go and cover (a tea towel or inverted plate both work well). Just put the plate on a saucepan of simmering water or in a cool oven.
Now for the fun part, these are our top suggestions of toppings for this year’s gorge-fest. Not like you don’t them all already. But just to make you hungry…
2. Maple syrup and marshmallows
3. Lemon and sugar
6. Maple syrup, butter and crunchy bacon
