After our pancake party last month we had so much feedback about how amazing the pancakes. It is Vee’s secret recipie… but not any more! See below for how to make awesome pancakes, cooking them on the BBQ adds that extra little bit of magic too. I’ve also included my Blueberry Compote recipie, I used frozen blueberries but i’m sure it will be much better with the fresh ones.
Let us know how you go, sorry if this post makes your tummy grumble!
Makes 4 – 6 pancakes good sized pancakes.
Prep time 10 – 15 minutes
Cooking time 4 minutes for each pancake
o 1 cup milk
o 1 cup self raising flour
o 2 tablespoons sugar
o 1 egg
o Butter for cooking
o In a large mixing bowl combine the milk, sale raising flour, sugar and egg. Mix all ingredients well until there are no lumps, best to use an electric beater but if one is not handy you can use a whisk or a spoon. Don’t get too worried if it is a bit lumpy when the batter cook it seams to turn out fine.
o Heat a non stick frying pan over medium heat. Add a little butter to the pan so that the base of the pan has a very light cover of butter only add enough so that the pancake does not stick to the pan.
o Using a soup ladle pour a small amount of mixture onto the pan, you can make the pancake as big or small as you like depend how hungry you are. Cook the pancake for 2 minutes or until bubbles form on the surface, turn the pancake over and cook for a further 2 minutes or until cooked through.
o Repeat this process with the remaining batter, and don’t forget to put a little bit of butter on the pan after you cook each pancake.
o 2 tablespoons caster sugar
o 300g frozen blueberries
o 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Cooking time about 10 minutes
o Place all of the ingredients into a pot and let simmer on a medium heat until the sauce becomes syrupy and reduced slightly
To make your pancakes a little more indulgent try replacing the 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of butter milk, the butter milk creates a more velvety textured pancake. Add some ice cream as a topping too, it is afterall a long forgotten breakfast favourite!
