Perfect Pancake Recipe
28 Feb 2014 |
Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day as it is affectionately known, is quickly approaching (its on the 4th March if you didn't know!), and it is the perfect day to allow yourself to eat as many pancakes as humanly possible (it would be rude not to).
We believe the pancake is one of the most humble and versatile foods and can be enjoyed as a sweet or savoury dish, so we encourage you to make the most of it and experiment with a variety of fabulous fillings! You must however have the perfect foundation for your feast and here's how to make the perfect pancake:
You will need:
100 g Plain Flour
300 ml Semi-Skimmed Milk
1 tbsp sunflour or vegetable oil
A pinch of salt
Add a pinch of salt to the flour and mix together in a large bowl. Make a well in the flour and add the eggs, making sure to remove any nasty shell! Then add in about 50 ml of milk and the oil and mix together until you have a paste. At this point you can steadily add the remaining milk to the mix until it is the consistency of single cream.
Heat the pan over a medium heat and add a small amount of oil. Pour some of the batter mixture in to the frying pan, slightly tilting the pan so there is an even, thin cover of mixture in the pan and allow to cook for about half a minute. Then your pancake will be ready to toss! If you successfully managed to toss your pancake without it landing on the floor, repeat the cooking process for 30 seconds on the other side and serve!
(Obviously repeat the process with the remaining batter!)
