Pancakes please…

by Sunita on March 5, 2007

The thin flat cake made of batter and baked on a griddle or fried in a pan, the pancake has a very long history and the tradition of tossing or flipping them is almost as old.

Pancakes are not always thin- the American version is a thick one… in fact pancakes are different in different parts of the world…

My kids love the plain English version where the pancakes are relatively thin and can be rolled up with their favourite fillings – usually honey…

With pancake day (Shrove Tuesday) just over, the kids were still in the mood for pancakes… and for quite a few mornings my eldest has been enquiring if they were going to be served for breakfast!!!

The following is the recipe for a basic pancake…

Whats needed-

240g Plain white flour
Two Eggs
30g butter
1pt Milk
Small pinch of salt
2 tsp sugar
1 tblsp melted butter


Whisk the eggs, milk, sugar and salt.

Fold in the flour and mix well.

Add the melted butter, mix and let it stand for some time.

Heat a pan and add a blob of butter. Pour a ladle of the batter into the pan and turn and twirl the pan till it is lightly coated.

Cook till light golden in colour, then turn it over(flip , if feeling adventurous) and cook to the same point on the other side as well.
Serve hot with fillings of one’s choice…in both my kids’ case, it was honey, literally oozing out from their pancake rolls as they greedily tucked into them…
