Pancake day again. I must say that I wouldn't run a marathon on a pancake breakfast, but to me there is no better treat than a traditional pancake rolled up with lemon and sugar....great for this evening's post-workout treat!
We make so many different varieties of pancake in my family that I've invested in a proper pancake pan...in fact I have two so that we can have a rolling stock of pancakes arriving at the table. I have a range of "healthy and sustaining" pancakes comng out in my book in July, but on pancake day there is only one choice for me -the bog-standand traditional english pancake recipe...you can't go wrong with it:
pinch of salt
300ml milk, or 250ml milk plus 50ml water
Sugar and lemon juice to serve
butter to cook
- Make a smooth batter with the flour, egg, milk and salt - blend together with an electric blender. If you can, leave this to stand for 30 minutes or so (I made my mixture last night for this morning's pancake feast).
- Heat a knob of butter in a large frying pan until hot and then pour enough batter to thinly coat the base of the pan.
- Cook for a couple of minutes each side.
- Sprinkle with sugar and lemon juice, or whatever your prefered topping is...jam, maple syrup, sugar....roll up and enjoy.
