Pancake Day!

HAPPY PANCAKE DAY! What better than a day dedicated to making and eating pancakes. And I like to go all out. My favourite type of pancakes are big fluffy American style ones, perfect for breakfast! I have posted about these before back in December –¬†American Style Pancakes. It is such an easy recipe to follow and makes the best pancakes!

You will need:

3 large eggs

115g plain flour

1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder

140ml of milk

a pinch of salt

  1. Separate the eggs, with the whites in one bowl and the yolks in another
  2. Sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl, adding the baking powder, milk and yolks in too before mixing them all together into a batter
  3. Add salt to the egg whites and whisk until stiff. Fold this into the batter mixture.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat and ladle the mixture into the pan, frying for a few minutes until it looks golden and firm. Use a spatula to loosen the pancake before flipping over and continue until both sides are golden.
  5. Pile your pancakes onto a plate and add your toppings!

YUM! Enjoy!

American Style Pancakes

Watching Elf over and over had me craving something sweet, not quite the sugar covered spaghetti he makes for breakfast but how about sugar covered pancakes! I used the American pancake recipe from Jamie Oliver which is super easy and the results are amazing! Proper fluffy pancakes.

To make them you will need:

3 large free-range eggs

115g plain flour

1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder

140ml of milk

pinch of salt

First sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl, adding the baking powder and milk in too. Next separate the eggs, the whites in one bowl and the yolks in with the flour and milk mixture. You then want to mix the flour mixture together into a smooth thick batter. In the other bowl, add the salt to the egg whites and whisk until stiff. Fold this into the mixture and your ready to go!

Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat and ladle the mixture into the pan, frying for a few minutes until it looks golden and firm. The amount of mixture you use for each pancake depends on what size you like to make them. Use a spatula to loosen the pancake before flipping over and continue until both sides are golden.

You can serve the pancakes with anything you like! I have a terrible sweet tooth so I would always go for something like Nutella and banana. However you could also go for bacon and maple syrup, fruit, jam .. the options are endless!
