Pancake Day is here!
I’ve got a really easy and yummy recipe for you and your family to enjoy!
Now, I always need help in the kitchen (and I don’t mean from you, Leonardo!), so don’t forget to ask a grown-up to help you out. Before you make a start, you’ll need:
- 110g plain flour, sifted
- pinch of salt
- 2 welfare-friendly eggs (look our for the Freedom Food label)
- 200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
- 50g butter
All you need to do is…
Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a little hole in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Whisk it all, making sure all the flour from around the edge of the bowl is mixed in properly too.
Add the milk and water mixture a little at a time. Keep whisking until all the milk and water is added and the batter is smooth and looks a bit like cream (ooh, I love cream!).
Melt the butter in a pan. Add 2 tbsp of it into the batter and whisk it in, then pour the rest into a bowl and use it to oil the pan, using kitchen paper to smear it round before you make each pancake.
Heat a pan over a high heat, reduce the temperature, wipe with a little of the melted butter and add two ladles full of batter. Swirl the batter round the pan and cook for about 30 seconds. Make sure the pancake is loose and toss.
Cook for a few more seconds and serve with your favourite topping – mine is a little bit of strawberry jam (just because it’s pink and I love pink). Oooh, sorry – that noise was my tummy rumbling. Enjoy!
