Pancake Day!

4 March 2014

It's Shrove Tuesday, which means...pancakes this eveningI know I can have pancakes all year round but there's something special about this one day of the year, rushing home from work knowing that dinner will be followed by a tasty sweet treat! 

There are heaps of fancy recipes around but my favourite type of pancake is the traditional delicate thin kind. They're so easy to make and we usually follow this recipe, taken from the BBC Good Food website.

To make about 12 pancakes, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Combine the flour, eggs and milk in a large bowl and whisk to a smooth batter. Leave in the fridge to cool for at least 30 minutes.

Heat some oil in a large frying pan and, when the pan is hot, coat the pan with some of the mixture and cook until golden. The first one always tends to go appallingly but still somehow taste delicious...

Keep them warm in the oven as you go along, otherwise someone's bound to come along and work their way through the pile sitting on the plate!

I like my pancakes with a squeeze of lemon and some sugar, but feel free to go crazy and add some jam or even *gasp* nutella!

Happy Pancake Day all :)
