Pancakes may seem like a really simple thing to make (which they are) but you would be surprised how many people don't know how to make them, I myself had to have a quick google before I made these. It had been awhile since my last batch! The other morning myself and Dan really fancied pancakes for breakfast, he had no idea where to start so I thought I would share this with you in case you wanted to make some and weren't quite sure how to do it.

makes 14-16
110g plain flour
Pinch of salt
2 large eggs
200ml semi skimmed milk mixed with 75ml water
50g butter

  1.  Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Then whisk the eggs and flour together.
  3. As the mixture starts to thicken add small quantities of the milk and water mixture. Make sure you keep whisking as you add the milk and water. 
  4. Once all the liquid as been added whisk until the mixture is smooth with the consistency of thin cream.
  5. Melt the butter in a pan and add 2 tablespoons into the mixture whisking it in. (Keep the rest to the side in a bowl and use to lubricate the pan when needed.)
  6. Get your pan really hot and then turn the heat down to medium. Then add a ladle of the batter to the pan making sure it covers the base of the pan. If there are any holes fill them in with a teaspoon of batter.
  7. It should take around 30 seconds to cook, check the side is tinged golden before flipping it and cooking for a further few seconds on the other side.
  8. Slide out of the pan onto the plate and enjoy.
There you have it, a quick and easy recipe to get delicious pancakes at home just in time for the weekend! How you enjoy them is completely up to you. My personal favourites are Nutella or Golden Syrup, I also like to roll my pancakes (see middle picture). Dan finds this a very strange thing but it's something I have done since childhood. 

Does anyone else roll their pancakes? What topping/filling do you like to have with yours?

  9. I noticed that these are thin pancakes and maybe this is the way they are in Europe compared to what we have in the U.S. (thick ones). But this looks better! I will try to make them this way next time. Looks great!
