How do you make pancakes
24/02/2004 at 09:09
I'm buying mine ready made ready to heat up!
24/02/2004 at 09:10
Oh Wolfy...!

Butter egg flour milk.

And this year I've got to have boring non-wheat allergy ones, and I can't have lemon on them 'cos I'm allergic to that too!

oops nic am I failing as a wife and mother??? tee hee!
24/02/2004 at 09:15
I can't afford em! I lost £2 yesterday so I've only got £5 left waaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
24/02/2004 at 09:26
Buy then in Sainsburys - much easier and just as nice as homemade. Also means Mr G and Junior G can 'cook' them themselves (instructions on back of packet).
24/02/2004 at 10:15
Nah, you've got to make your own. They're so much nicer! I might have american-style thick ones with maple syrup tonight -yummyummyummyummyum.
I'll make a couple extra for you Jon. Lemon and sugar or maple syrup?
24/02/2004 at 10:25
So I need to buy
milk (should already have)
Butter (should alreadt have)
sugar (should already have)

What proportions?

Think I'll give the maple syrup a miss.

Have a look at this page Matt - which includes recipes as well as the rather classic line: "Certainly these days part of the fun of cooking pancakes is in the tossing".
24/02/2004 at 10:40
Will you be able to toss them though?
24/02/2004 at 10:41
I'd say around 100-150g plain flour per egg (depending how thick you like em) and 330ml of water/milk (again depending on thickness) this'll make plenty for one person, just double the amouts for 2 or whatever. You can also add an bit of melted butter or oil in to the mix. Just mix it all together in a food processor, or mix the egg and some of the milk slowly into the flour then add the butter and the remaining milk.

Pour enough batter to cover the base of a hot greased frying pan and cook for 1 minute on each side.

Tada! Yummy panckaes.

Pancakes (makes about 5/6)

4 oz plain flour
7 fl oz milk
1 egg

Whisk the lot together and leave for 30 mins.

Cook over medium/high heat, squeeze lemon (fresh is nicer) and sprinkle of sugar, eat and enjoy.

I let my husband do the tossing - he's so much better at it than me.

Never bother with sugar, I prefer mine smeared with black treacle.. and a dash of lemon... Mmmmmm
24/02/2004 at 10:43
Black treacle? Ewww. get some maple syrup down yer necks.
24/02/2004 at 10:44
what's with all this pancake-loading??
24/02/2004 at 10:45
Actually WW, that's a much better recipe than the one on Delias page - she just faffs around too much with stuff which is s'posed to be easy.... so ignore that link I posted Matt!

24/02/2004 at 10:47
Cookie M - loading pancakes with sugary stuff just makes them taste nicer...
as to why we load our stomachs with it, it's PANCAKE day - Hurrah! (something vaguely religious connected with it, but I try not to think about that, and just focus on the more important subject of food)
24/02/2004 at 10:54
So for every egg I dump in half a cup of flour and a cup of milk, mix it up and stick it in the frying pan, good toss half way through (snigger), load on lots of lemon and sugar and serve?

Mmmm, all those calories to burn off running.
24/02/2004 at 10:58
You'll burn most of it off tossing! (Heavy frying pans!!!!)
