Oops, don’t forget the pinch of salt! Don’t worry, I haven’t gone bonkers(!) it’s Pancake day here in Ireland. Or for those of you that prefer the term Shrove Tuesday, which comes the day before Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar.
Pancakes are fantastic on any day of the year, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. So if you’re looking for Nigella style pancakes then have a look at my post American pancakes with blueberries and maple syrup, if you want traditional ones then read on!
250g plain flour
Pinch of salt
1 pint of milk
Oil/butter for frying
Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl. Make a well into the centre of the flour, break in the eggs and mix. Gradually whisk in the milk until you have smooth batter. Pour into a jug and leave to stand for about 30 minutes.
Pop a knob of butter and a little oil into a hot pan and then pour in a thin layer of the mix. Fry until the top starts to blister and then flip over and wait for that side to turn golden brown.
After that it’s up to you! These traditional pancakes were served with lemon and sugar.
Now that you’ve seen the two different recipes, it’s decision time… What would you prefer? Do you want traditional pancakes?
Or American ones?
You decide! Let me know how you get on…..
