Tomorrow is Pancake Day, also known as Shrove Tuesday. This is very exciting for me for two reasons. One, I never heard of Pancake day until my London friend Trisha here told me about it, and two, I make pancakes almost every Sunday! So we thought to celebrate this by sharing my personal pancake recipe with you.
In truth, I have always thought my pancakes are more similar to crepes as they are thin and smooth compared to what a North American girl like me knows pancakes to be, which are these thick, fluffy monsters. But Trisha assured me that my version of pancakes are what are most familiar to her too. The major difference is that I top my pancakes with nothing else than Canadian maple syrup. It’s the only way for me. But this recipe serves as good base for sweet or savory toppings/fillings alike – so it’s up to you.
This very simple recipe makes about 10 pancakes:
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup of milk (I use full fat)
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 cup of flour
- 3 tbs melted butter
Wisk together all indredients very well. Set burner to medium heat. When hot, ladel in enough of the mixture to cover the floor of the frying pan (I use a non stick and the floor of the pan measures about 18cm). Cook for about 1 1/2 minutes, shaking the pan every once in a while to loosen the pancake so you can flip it over easier. Once flipped, cook for another minute or so. Slide out onto a plate and repeat until batter is finished.
