Shrove Tuesday/Pancake day. I adore pancakes. With anything. Lemon and sugar, Maple syrup, Potato pancakes, Savoury pancakes. I could go on and on, and fill this page up with different ways of eating these delights. Today, we had them with fresh strawberries and vanilla ice cream. Delish.
This morning, I did a Google search for different recipes for these. Boy there is a load out there. In the end I used, the *bung it in and no real measuring recipe* I have used for years.
A hint though... The first one is always rubbish. Prepare yourself for this and put it straight in the bin, from then onwards, perfect pancakes.
You will need...
2 cups S.R. Flour (sifted)
2 Eggs (beaten)
2 teasps Vanilla Essence.
1 tablespoon Butter (melted)
1 tablespoon Castor Sugar (if making sweet ones)
600mls Milk (or maybe a little more 'cos I just bunged it in)
Butter for cooking in.
Place flour into a large jug, add eggs, butter, sugar, vanilla and last the milk.
Mix with hand mixer until you are happy there are no lumps and all ingredients are well combined.
In a fry pan, place a little butter and heat until melted, but not burnt. Wipe out the butter now with a paper towel. Leaving just a little that has coated the bottom of the fry pan. Place a soup ladle full of batter into the fry pan on a low heat. Do not disturb until you see bubbles rising through the pancake then toss or flip. Around two minutes on this side and then your first pancake is done. Now, like I said. My first one is always rubbish, yours might not be. Then repeat this until you have enough pancakes made. Makes around 15 pancakes.
It might look ugly but it sure tastes good!
