I know I’m a bit late for a pancake recipe, it being a week or two past pancake day, but I remembered this pancake recipe when my dad and I made them the other week, so I thought I’d tell you! Here are the instructions, just the right amount for about five people…
- 3 eggs
- 6 ounces of plan flour
- 10.5 fluid ounces of milk
- 4.5 fluid ounces of water
- 3 tablespoons of melted butter
- Weigh out the 6 ounces of plain flour, and put it in a big bowl.
- Measure the water and the milk into a large measuring jug.
- Add the eggs to the bowl with the flour in, then mix the two together.
- Pour a little bit of the liquid into the flour and egg mixture, adding little bits at a time, making sure that there aren’t any lumps and it is smooth.
- Carry on pouring it in, stirring as you go, until all of the liquid is mixed in.
- Add two of the three tablespoons of butter into the mixture and stir.
- Put the last tablespoon of butter into a ramekin or small bowl for oiling the pan.
- Turn the hob on to medium heat, and pour the mixture into a jug so it is easier to get out to ladle onto the pan.
- Put the pan onto the hob, and ladle enough mixture onto to cover the bottom of the pan.
- When it has been on there for a while, get a fish slice to flip it over; the side that has already been on the bottom of the pan should be nicely browned and cooked.
- When the other side is also cooked, take it off the pan and onto a plate, being ready to ladle the next pancake mixture onto the pan.
- Carry on doing this until all of your pancake mixture is gone, and you will be left will a plate full of pancakes! Remember to turn the hob off after you have finished…
- I love my pancakes best with sugar, lemon juice and nutmeg, but I would also try nutella, whipped cream and banana, as that is my second favourite!
I hope you follow my instructions to make these, as you won’t regret it!
