Pancakes Day in 2014
The annual pancake day is one of my favourite days to wait for! One of the main reason is because I have lots of happy times with my kids, playing the flipping game with the pancakes when they’re little, that’s the time they started to learn cooking from me.
Fast backward to the previous time, it should be when they’re 6 or 7 years old though, since build up all the fun and experience, they’re full of passion and does lots of cooking in nowadays, that’s why they doesn’t like any ready meal or junk food at all.
All those memories remain fresh in my head, and it made me smile secretly anytime when I remember it.
This classic pancake recipe was all the time I took, simple and easy but so nice and yummy.
But I will make a change to serve with the pancake every time, such as I will make the sauce, syrup or the filling difference all the time.
And today, I like to adore this lovely ginger syrup, thinly slice some fresh ginger and shred into thinner strips, cook with honey and a small scrap of water until syrupy. And the other sauce is the cinnamon yogurt, just whisk 2 tbsp of yogurt or dairy-free yogurt with a pinch of ground cinnamon and 1 tsp of unrefined natural sugar, set aside. And I prepare my home-made lemon curd as well to serve with the pancakes. The last serving idea is the simplest one, just sprinkle with some fresh berries or sliced banana with maple syrup. That’s all for my pancake day in 2014!
And now is just enjoy it!
But for the pancake, it always the same basic recipe:
- 100g Self-raising flour
- 1 tbsp Coconut sugar
- 1 tsp Baking powder (optional)
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 125ml Skimmed milk
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 1 tbsp of Lemon zest
The way to prepare: Mix and whisk all the ingredients together and leave it for at least an hour before. And heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and brush with oil. Drop a large tablespoon of batter into the pan and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until bubbles form, flip it over if you can or turn over it and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes until they are golden on both sides. Repeat with the rest of the batter, cover with a clean tea towel to keep warm before serve with other fillings or sauces.
Have a happy pancake day and enjoy! 🙂
