We are barely minutes away from pancake day, so I hope you're planning on having some tasty pancakes! Whether you like french pancakes, like crepes, or American style fat pancakes, sweet or savoury - this day is the day to get your pans at the ready for some flipping!
I made these for my house mates the other week, with this cheeky, little Good Food recipe. So get flipping foodies...
- 200g self raising flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg
- 300ml milk
- 15g butter (melted)
- oil or additional butter for the pan
- Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Beat the egg with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick, smooth batter. Beat in the melted butter.
- Heat a teaspoon of oil or a small chunk of butter in a medium sized non-stick frying pan. Drop a large tablespoon or ladle of the batter into the pan (around 7.5cm across). Cook for three minutes until bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake and then flip over for 2-3 on the alternate side, until golden brown. If you want to make a big stack, cover with kitchen paper to retain the heat.
Serve with traditional lemon and sugar or fresh blueberries, syrup, nutella or even stew if you prefer savoury. Go wild!
Keep calm and get your whisk on!
