Pancakes

Last Sunday evening – I started dreaming of pancakes – I really have no idea why… but those little circular sweet treats were bouncing around in my subconscious and *hints* to HIM to make them fell a bit short. (Note to self – “Hints don’t work on men”)

Anyhoo – this past weekend, I relayed the story to friends and we laughed at how I had expected HIM to catch my hints… and eventually agreed that (no matter what) Sunday was going to be pancake day…. No hints necessary – just do it…  And so it was!

(The Recipe came from a torn out magazine – which has no reference on the page to title or even issue… so I am unable to give credit)

I made the batter & attempted the first 2… but HIM was the real expert in making & flipping them!

We kept it simple – I doused mine in sugar & cinnamon & freshly squeezed lemon juice (served with some fresh berries) – while HIM ate his lathered in nutella or caramel or maple syrup (he basically ate one of each).

They were delicious and I can honestly say, easy to make… so this might easily become a Sunday evening tradition in the future!

Pancakes

100g flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
300ml milk
1 Tablespoon oil

  • Sift the flour with a pinch of salt
  • Make a well in the centre and break in the eggs
  • Add a little of the milk & oil
  • Whisk from the centre, gradually incorporating the flour until you get a thick paste
  • Add the rest of the milk and continue to whisk until you get a smooth consistency
  • Rest for 20minutes
  • Using a soup ladle – add the liquid to a non-stick frying pan – tilting the pan to ensure that you get an even round layer
  • cook for 30seconds and then flip up
  • cook for a further 30seconds

Mmm – enjoy!

  1. I have to say… I am also not skinny because of pancakes! Great post and completely agree about your hints. “We” are not very good with them 😜
