Happy Pancake Day 2013

Happy Pancake Day!

Today is one of my favourite days of the year, Shrove Tuesday, aka Pancake day ๐Ÿ˜€ I really love pancakes, and do not really eat them at any other time because they are so unhealthy ๐Ÿ˜› So one day a year I can have them and go crazy and eat lots :mrgreen:

What topping do you have? Most people eat them sweet, i.e. with lemon or sugar or syrup, I have even heard of people putting ice cream on them! I could not eat them sweet, I prefer them savoury, and I LOVE to put HP Brown Sauce on mine, and always have done since I was a kid; Some people think that’s weird so each to their own I guess ๐Ÿ˜›

How I make mine

So you will need:

Mixing bowl, frying pan, whisk, spatula/flipper; eggs, milk, flour.

I used to make them all the time, so I don’t really measure things out, I do use 2 eggs and a good bit of plain flour and milk. I’ll use the quantities from another site.

  • 110g Pain sifted flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 200ml milk

Sift the flour into the bowl and add the eggs and whisk, then slowly add the milk and continue to whisk until there are no more lumps. Oil the pan and make sure it is really hot, and pour in some of the batter mixture.ย Spread it around the pan so it covers the base, it does not take long to cook. You can lift up the edges of the pancake to see how the other side is doing, then flip it.

A couple of minutes on each side and it’s done. Serve on a plate with your choice of topping and continue to make more until the batter is finished.

My finished pancake is at the top, complete with HP Brown Sauce ๐Ÿ™‚
