Isn't pancake day early this year! Little E loves a pancake so she was super excited when I told her she could have them for breakfast this morning (She isn't at school because she is recovering from an ear operation). Usually I make German pancakes in the oven at breakfast time because they are super quick and easy but on Shrove Tuesday it just has to be 'flippy' pancakes!
My pancake batter recipe is super easy:
Pinch of salt
100g plain flour
Vegetable oil or spray oil
Place the flour in a bowl, make a well and add the eggs. Whisk the eggs gradually encorporting the flour. Add 50ml of the milk and keep whisking until you have a thick paste. Then add the rest of the milk, whisking constantly as you do.
Heat up a decent non-stick pan (I've recently bought a new Tefal one) and add some vegetable oil then wipe the excess off with a paper towel or you can lightly spray your pan with spray oil.
Add a little batter, just enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook on a high heat loosening the end edges with a spatula. Flip your pancake half way through. When cooked on both sides transfer to a plate and top with sugar and lemon or Nutella - or whatever floats your pancake boat.
This batter recipe should make at least 12 small thin crepe style pancakes.
The kids went for traditionally lemon and sugar whilst I wrapped Nutella inside mine. It was the first time Little I has given pancakes a proper try and she had us in hysterics with her eating technique!
