I can't believe how quick this year is going. In only a few week, it will be pancake day and so we have been practising our favourite recipe and toppings.
I have always used the same pancake recipe that my mum gave me:
- 250g plain flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 large eggs
- 500ml milk
You basically mix it all together in a bowl until the batter is smooth. Add a small dollop of butter to a hot frying pan and pour in a little of the batter mix so it coats the base of the pan and then cook for a few minutes, flipping half way through.
That's the basic and easiest way of making pancakes, the hardest bit is flipping them. MY husband can flip pancakes very easily but I cannot so I stuck to using the OXO Good Grips Flip & Fold Omelette Turner which slides easily down the side of the pancake under the entire pancake making it simple to flip over.
After the pancakes are all cooked, it's then basically a chance to get creative. We try loads of different things on the top of our pancakes, from the original sugar and lemon to yummy chocolate sauce and nuts.
Today, we decided to have strawberries and cream on them. Thomas' friend came round for dinner and all three of them gave the pancakes a big thumbs up!
