I see pancake mixes in shops and it breaks my heart. Pancakes are sooooooo easy to make, and they really are one of those things that are a million times tastier when home made, and worth the little effort they take.
I thought I would share my two favourite foolproof recipes.
You need a non-stick pan. You can buy special crepe pans, but I just use a tefal non-stick 28cm Pan which I use only for pancakes (Tefal also make a non-stick crepe pan) Heat it up, add a splash of oil and away you go.
1 Large Egg
100g Self Raising Flour (for gluten free use SR gluten free flour with a pinch of xanthum gum)
Pinch of Salt
Mix well, and rest for 30 minutes before using
1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Milk
1/2 cup Water
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
1 Cup Plain Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
Mix well, and rest for two hours
The first pancake is traditionally a bit rubbish, so I always eat this quickly myself before anyone notices.
Just remember practice makes perfect - make double the mixture if you're worried that you might need to bin a few
Enjoy- and please share! X
