With Pancake day a couple of days away, I thought you might want to see my own simple recipe.
If this kids are on half term you can have great fun making these and it get them away from the smart phones and tablets!
Who’s going to be brave enough to toss the pancake!!!!
- 110g/4oz plain flour, sifted
- pinch of salt
- 2 eggs
- 200ml/7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water
- 50g/2oz butter
- Sift the flour and salt through a sieve into a mixing bowl.
- Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it.
- Whisk the eggs into the mixture and gradually add the mix and water as you whisk
- When all the liquid has been added, gather up all the flour from around the edge of the bowl and whisk until smooth. It should have the consistency of thin cream
- Melt the butter
- Add 2 tbsp of the butter to the mixture and whisk again
- Keep the rest of the butter to smear around the pan before you cook each pancake
- Heat the pan to a high heat and then reduce it to a medium heat
- Take 2 tbsp of the mixture for each pancake and pour it into the pan spreading it to the edges
- Cook for about half a minute or so to cook and test by lifting with a spatula (it should be slightly gold)
- Turn the pancake over with the spatula – if you’re feeling brave, loosen the edges then try tossing it!
- Cook for a few seconds on the other side and slide it on to a plate.
You can serve as you like. The simple way is to stack them and squeeze a lemon on to each pancake – then sprinkle with caster sugar.
