Don't forget the pancakes today!
Pancake Tuesday - one of the greatest days of the year - has rolled around again and there are bound to be some people who still haven't a clue how to make pancakes.
Not to worry, pancakes can be tricky so we've got a foolproof pancake recipe guaranteed to taste delicious to the very last bite!
This recipe is for thinner style pancakes.
You will need:
125g of plain flour
2 eggs, medium sized
300ml of milk
Pinch of salt
Beat the eggs together.
Pour the flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle.
Pour the eggs into the well and whisk together.
Gradually, add in the milk.
Put the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
Heat a shallow frying pan - preferably non-stick.
Add a small amount of oil or butter. Don't have the pan too hot or your mixture will stick and burn!
Ladle out your mixture – one ladle equals one pancake
When you see bubbles appearing on the surface of the pancake, give your pancake a jiggle and when it no longer sticks give it a flip to do the other side. Or if, like the rest of us, flipping pancakes are beyond our capabilities, loosen the underside of the pancake with a turner (see picture below if you don't know what this is!) and then flip it over with the utensil.
