While Pancake Tuesday might be over, pancakes are eaten here all the time and this recipe is too good not to share! It’s a recent find from Jamie Oliver and it’s so good!!
It’s such an easy way for kids to get involved and be independent while cooking (the prep part anyway, not the heat for our smallies yet)
1 cup of self-raising flour
1 cup of semi-skimmed milk
1 large free-range egg
unsalted butter or olive oil , for frying
seasonal berries , such as raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries
banana , peeled and sliced
apple or pear , peeled and grated
runny honey or maple syrup
1. Fill the cup with the flour and tip into a large bowl. Fill the same cup with milk and pour that into the bowl too, then crack in the egg. Whisk everything together until it’s nice and smooth.
2. Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Once hot, add a small knob of butter then, once the butter has melted and starts to sizzle, add large spoonfuls of batter to the pan – you’ll need to cook your pancakes in batches.
3. Wait for little bubbles to form on the surface of the pancakes, about 1 to 2 minutes, then use a fish slice to flip them over to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes on the other side, or until golden again.
4. Carefully wipe out the pan with a ball of kitchen paper, then add another small knob of butter and cook the next batch.
5. Serve the pancakes right away with your favourite toppings!
We’re definitely going to try this out at the weekend and let the kids go for it!! Think they’ll love the idea of the one mug and doing it themselves!
