Pancake Day!

In my opinion, you can’t beat a stack of light, fluffy and dripping with maple syrup – American style pancakes.

Here is a perfect recipe for the only meal you should be serving tonight – on the only night that its acceptable to serve dessert for dinner!  Enjoy!

American Style Pancake Recipe

Makes around 10 small pancakes – feeds 2 to 3

135g of plain flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

A pinch of salt

2 tablespoons of caster sugar

130ml of milk

1 large egg

2 tablespoons of melted butter

A little butter and vegetable oil for frying.

Mix together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add the egg and start to beat with a whisk, slowly adding the milk and melted butter to the mix.  Keep whisking until you have a thick batter.

Heat a little butter and dash of vegetable oil in a frying pan, on a medium/high heat.  When the oil and butter start to bubble spoon in 3 to 4 dollops of the pancake mixture (try to leave a little space between each pancake).  When you notice little bubbles appearing on the top of the pancakes (after about a minute or two) its time to turn them over. The second side doesn’t usually take as long as keep an eye on them.

Serve your pancakes hot with whatever you fancy… Our favorites include:

Maple syrup, Nutella, lots of fresh fruits and lightly whipped cream!
