Pancake Of The British Kind, 2017.

img_3162

I have a good few pancake recipes on here. These were the perfect Pancake Day pancakes. They reminded me of growing up in the UK and it being really cold. Our dinner ladies used to serve them in the playground at playtime and they were so good.

I have to confess to mainly blogging this recipe for me. The original recipe can be found on an excellent blog about all things British – Smitten By Britain. I emailed this to Miss Muffin and Mr jokingly told her to x 3. She did and we ate them all. I may have had 6 but please don’t tell my personal trainer.

Our fillings were the traditional lemon and sugar, coconut and maple syrup, Fix and Fog dark chocolate peanut butter and berries.

Ingredients:

300g plain flour

3 large egg – beaten

600ml milk

300ml water

Pinch of salt

Fillings of your choice

To Make

Sieve the salt and flour

Make a well in the centre

Break the egg into the well and stir with the wooden spoon to make a crumbly mix

Combine the milk and water in a jug

Slowly add to the flour and egg mix, stir constantly to  help avoid lumps

Whisk the mixture to a smooth batter (The mixture is runny as these are not American style)

Heat a fry pan and spray lightly with oil

Ladle enough batter to cover the base of your pan (a 1/3c in our large frypan)

Cook until frilly around the edges and brown in spots appear on the cooked side

They should take 2-3 to cook each pancakes

We made about 18-20 large thin pancakes

  1. They are even better if you use sparkling water instead of just normal water. Also add a bit of soda bicarbonate (half a spoon).
