It’s Pancake Day this week(Shrove Tuesday 12th February 2013) and I have been busy ensuring all the ingredients I need are stocked in our cupboards.
Some people choose to make pancakes with plain flour, some with raising… I always choose plain and mine turn our perfectly well!
I have been amazed by Amazon in the past couple of weeks, especially since buying fancy dress items back in January. Yet I was even more surprised that you could purchase delicious food items too!
Alongside the pancake accompaniments, we also have Aunt Jemima’s Original Pancake and Waffle Mix – a cheat’s way of making pancakes. Yet in this instance the mix makes the wonderful butter pancakes and can easily be used to make waffles! To say I am drooling whilst writing this post is an understatement! I can see my Weight Watchers journey will take a slight detour tomorrow but it will most definitely be worth it!
A trusty Pancake Recipe I use every year is:
100g of Plain Flour
2 Medium Free Range Eggs
300ml Semi-Skimmed Milk
Vegetable oil for the pan
Simply mix all the ingredients together to make your batter
Heat the pan and wipe a little of the oil on kitchen towel around the pan. This stops the pancakes sticking but does not make them oily.
Measure out a small cup or ladle filled with the batter and pour into the pan. Tilt the same way you would for an omelette.
Cook for around 30-40 seconds and each side.
Serve hot with fillings such as lemon, sugar, chocolate sauce, golden syrup, strawberries, bananas, ice cream, mixed berries.
Enjoy your pancakes!
We were sent a pack of Aunt Jemima’s Pancake Mix and the delicious Hershey’s Chocolate Flavoured Syrup for the purpose of this post – they are just two of a wide range of cooking accessories and yummy American foods available on Amazon.
