Pancake Day Recipe
Its Shrove Tuesday! Otherwise know as Pancake Day.
Pancakes are a delicious and fun dinner for the whole family. You can have them sweet, with lemon, sugar, syrup, chocolate, berries etc. Or savoury - with ham, cheese, mushrooms.
Pancakes work with most things. Here at Foothold Cymru, we really love them because they are a super cheap and super easy breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Here’s the recipe we’ll be using for our pancakes tonight.
- 120g/4oz plain flour
- pinch salt
- 2 eggs
- 210ml/7fl oz milk
- 90ml/3fl oz water
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- butter, for frying
- caster sugar
- lemon juice/or wedges
- or whater sweet/savoury toppings you fancy
- Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl.
- Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs.
- In a separate bowl mix together the milk and the water.
- Beat the eggs into the flour with a wooden spoon and gradually beat in the milk and water mixture to get a smooth liquid the consistency of single cream.
- Stir in the oil and allow to stand for 30 minutes before using.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan until very hot, then add a small knob of butter. Ladle in a ladleful of the batter, quickly turning the pan to coat the base evenly with the batter. Cook for 30 seconds to one minute, until the base is lightly browned.
- Using a palette knife, gently flip the pancake over and cook on the other side for a few seconds, until lightly browned. Slide the pancake onto a plate, cover with greaseproof paper and keep warm. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
- To serve, sprinkle the pancakes with caster sugar and lemon juice, then fold twice to form triangles. Serve the lemon wedges alongside.
