Tuesday: Pancake Day, also properly known as Shrove Tuesday (the word shrove comes from to give something up) that marks the start of Lent and the countdown to Easter, in the U.K. on this day we traditionally make pancakes and even though Iโ€™m living in China nothing changes. The most common topping is just lemon juice and sugar (great for your teeth ๐Ÿ˜‚) for that sharp and sweet contrast in flavours. The cooked pancakes also freeze like a dream, just warm them up in a dry frying pan for a quick breakfast!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
A Very Simple Pancake recipe
125g flour (plain/all purpose)
350ml milk
2 eggs
Pinch of salt
Oil for cooking, about 100ml
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
1- Whisk everything together and leave to rest for 30minutes but overnight is better
2 - Heat your pan on medium, pour in the oil, bring it up to temperature and then pour it out again into a bowl, this leaves a thin layer in the pan
3 - I use a 1/3 cup to measure out the batter, pour into the hot pan and swirl around evenly. Cook for 1 minute
4 - After it starts to look cooked on top, flip it over and cook for a further 30 seconds. Adjust your heat and time after the first one if necessary
5 - Stack them up as you go, they wonโ€™t stick together
6 - Serve with your choice of topping, lemon and sugar or Golden Syrup are old favourites
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
