PANCAKES IN THE WOODS ON SHROVE TUESDAY



We enjoyed making pancakes in the woods for Shrove Tuesday using our new Kelly Kettle. I much prefer fluffy American pancakes at the moment, making them smaller than I would usually make pancakes, more like drop scones in size.



How to make American Pancakes

150g plain flour
150ml milk
2 tablespoons of caster sugar
1 large free-range egg
1 teaspoon of baking soda
& 2 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter.

I simply sift the dry ingredients into a one bowl and all the wet ingredients into another, whisking the wet mixture lightly before adding the wet mixture to the dry, slowing stirring.

I then whisk together until there aren't any lumps!

To cook, heat some butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and drop spoonfuls of the mixture slowly into the pan until to form palm size circles.

Once the mixture starts to bubble then I flip over to cook the other side, it take just a couple of minutes each side.

Serve with bacon & maple syrup, banana, or lemon juice and sugar!
