Ah, shrove Tuesday, how I love you. Pancake day – a day that I can indulge in my favourite food with no limits or guilt. I have been busy in the kitchen this evening got flipping a batch of American style fluffy pancakes for dinner.
Pancakes with syrup and fruit for myself and pancakes with eggs for Euan. Breakfast for dinner, what more do you want? Below, I will share my recipe and images of my creations for you all to see.
Think these take your fancy? Get in the kitchen and give it a try, there’s so little to the method and takes no time at all.
1 cup of milk
1 cup of plain flour
Pinch of salt
Two tbsp sugar
Two tsp baking powder
Two tbsp butter
Pinch of cinnamon
Selection of fruit to top
Syrup to dress
Method: Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Mix milk with egg and butter (melted) and add to the dry mix. Stir together until a paste has formed.
Heat a large skillet or frying pan with a generous amount of oil, I use coconut oil but any will do. Add two to three spoons of mix at a time and heat until bubble form. Flip and serve warm with a selection of choice toppings.
I prefer to top with syrup, fruit and a drizzle of lemon juice. Enjoy!
