So as usual coming down to breakfast I decided not to have the usual toast etc but wanted something more substantial. That’s when I remembered my favourite recipe out of The Student Cookbook [AFF]. Basic Pancakes! This post contains affiliate links.
This is a brilliant help for those of us who aren’t culinarily talented and trying to work with a budget. The pancakes I made today were lovely; warm and fresh with a little bit of lemon juice over them but you can try them any way you like. Somehow I always manage to make 10 though so there are some left over for a bedtime snack tonight and breakfast tomorrow. What’s your favourite breakfast treat?
- 125g plain flour
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg lightly beaten
- 300ml milk
- oil or butter for greasing the pan
- Put the flour and salt into a bowl and create a “well” in the middle.
- Pour the egg and a little milk into the well, and whisk thoroughly.
- Slowly keep adding the milk, whisking well each time until you have a smooth batter.
- Transfer your batter into a jug.
- Heat your oil or butter in a pan over a high heat until you see smoke rising from the pan then remove the oil/butter into a small heatproof dish.
- Pour your better into the pan, tilting until the base is covered in a thin layer. Alternatively, spoon out smaller thicker pancakes.
- When bubbled begin to appear and the bottom is a golden brown colour, turn your pancakes and cook on the other side.
- Transfer onto a plate, and continue until you run out of batter.
- Serve with either a sweet or savoury filling and enjoy!
