So it is Shrove Tuesday. Also known as Pancake Day. I believe the idea was to clear out your ‘bread’ before fasting for Lent. Lent will hopefully feature a little more this moth as well as I’m making a foody change and will be experimenting in the kitchen. Today however I’m serving up good old pancakes.
Easy to prepare, hard to pull off with great skill. Here goes.
Seasoning – sweet or savoury, I like both.
And it is that simple. You can go down the traditional route of sugar and lemon or the increasingly popular chocolate spread. I love a savoury cheese – like you couldn’t guess.
I don’t measure this, sorry. I just start with 2-3 eggs, whisked. Add milk and flour while continuing to whisk until you get a batter-ey consistency.
Butter a frying pan. I prefer the crisp it gives the edges compared to oil. Fry on one side, toss, fry on other side.
Fill, roll, eat.
And that’s pancakes over for another year. Don’t forget to try whipped cream and maple syrup either.
