Ben’s Guide to Pancakes

What’s this? A demented scrambeled egg? Crispy chicken skin? No, it’s my attempt at pancakes!

What’s this?

This morning my mum wanted me to cook some pancakes, as we had run out of bread. Instead of refering to the cookbook, today I made them from my memory. Here is my recipe:

  1. Put 250g of flour into a bowl and add two eggs.
  2. Use a whisk to mix it all up.
  3. Put 150ml of milk and water together and gradually add it to the mixture while stirring.
  4. Melt 50g of butter (NOT in the microwave. A baker I know told me never melt your butter in a microwave), and put half of the butter in the mixture.
  5. Keep the other half of the melted butter for cooking.
  6. Put a spoonful of the butter in a frying pan and turn the gas on. Once the butter has gone all over the base, add in some mixture to cover the base.
  7. Wait for one side to cook and then either flip it over by the classic method or use a spatula to flip it over. MOVE THE SPATULA UNDERNEATH THE PANCAKE TO THE CENTER! IMPORTENT! If you don’t… well the proof is in the pudding… or the pancake, in this case. (I tried to turn the pancake without moving the spatula right into the centre,  and it became… well, just look at the picture =)
  8. Now you have a pancake. You can coat it with sugar, butter, syrup, honey, jam, lemon juice… basically anything you think you like your pancakes with.

Enjoy pancakes =)
