Pancake Party

It’s Pancake Day tomorrow (or Shrove Tuesday if you’re old school), but I’m sure I didn’t need to tell you that!  I know some people take it really seriously and use it as a day to binge on whatever they’re giving up for lent, but Sunny and I just use it as an excuse for great big Pancake Par-tay.  But come on, as if we needed an excuse!  Sometimes it just needs to be a Saturday morning.  🙂

We usually make the fluffy American/Scotch pancakes (nice and easy to flip in the pan!) and then plonk a load of different toppings and sauces on the table.

Fluffy American-Style Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 150ml milk
  • 130g plain flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a bit of butter to grease the pan
  1. Put all the ingredients in a jug and whisk until nice and smooth.
  2. Heat up a frying pan (medium heat) and grease with butter.
  3. Pour a little batter into the pan and let it settle.  When the top of the pancake starts to bubble – flip it! 
  4. What you serve them with is down to you.  Throw some blueberries into the batter, a lump of peanut butter, sugar strands, walnuts… the possibilities are endless!

How do you like your pancakes?
