Did you all have a fun day making Pancakes?? I do think it’s funny that us brits only tend to make them on the 1 day a year…. when theyre always so delishious!! What type did you make and what’s your topping of choice?? Me… I’m a lemon sugar kinda gal, however this year I decided to make some little scotch drop pancakes (ameriacan stylie) and they were yummy!!!!
Here’s my recipie (its super easy)
will make about 12ish
- 125 g self-raising flour
- 2 tsp caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp melted unsalted butter
- 150 ml semi-skimmed milk
- sunflower oil for cooking
Put the flour in a bowl with sugar. Make a well in the centre and add egg, melted butter and a little of the milk. Gradually stir in the remaining milk a little at a time, to make a fairly thick, smooth batter. easy!
Heat a large, heavy-based frying pan (or in my case a wok) over a moderate heat and grease it with a bit of oil. (you dont need much!)
Using a dessertspoon, pour the batter from the pointed end (rather than the side of the spoon) to make neat, round drop scones. (this really works!) You should be able to cook 4 scones at once. Cook for about 2 minutes- the scones should be golden brown underneath.
Using a palette knife, flip the scones over and cook for a further 1–2 minutes or until golden brown on the other side.
Serve with an array of toppings… my fave was creme freche and blueberries and a sprinkling of golden caster sugar! The housemates also recommend, jam, honey, choc spread, lemon/sugar, maple syrup!
And in true blogging style, here’s my pancakes!!!
