Pancake Tuesday – recipe and filling ideas #pancaketuesday

Mmm I love pancakes and today is the one day of the year when you can guilt free eat as many pancakes as you can!! Here is an easy pancake recipe which is so simple that the hardest decision will be what toppings you choose to put on top….my top three are The Classic (lemon & sugar), The Savoury (ham, melted cheese and onions) or The Sweet (nutella and bananas) – I think they will be my starter, main and dessert later 🙂

I’d love to hear yours!

Serves Makes approx. 12 pancakes
Ingredients

Pancake Mixture:

  • 100g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 300 ml milk
  • 1 tablsp. melted butter or sunflower oil

To Cook

Method

Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well; add the melted butter or oil and half the milk. Gradually draw the flour into the liquid by stirring all the time with a wooden spoon until all the flour has been incorporated and then beat well to make a smooth batter. Stir in the remaining milk. Alternatively, beat all the ingredients together for 1 minute in a blender or food processor. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes, stir again before using.

To make the pancakes, heat a small heavy-based frying until very hot and then turn the heat down to medium. Lightly grease with oil and then ladle in enough batter to coat the base of the pan thinly (about 2 tablsp.), tilting the pan so the mixture spreads evenly. Cook over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes or until the batter looks dry on the top and begins to brown at the edges. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife or fish slice and cook the second side.
