Recipe: American Pancakes

American Pancake Recipe

This is the first time that I’ve tried and cooked American Pancakes so I’m looking forward to trying something new.

Simple American Pancake Recipe

 

What you will need:

  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 35g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 125mls Buttermilk
  • 25g Butter (melted)
  • Olive oil for frying
  • 8 Thick slices of streaky bacon
  • Maple Syrup

How to make American Pancakes:

Sift the flour, baking powder, and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Add in the sugar, mix, and make a well (hole) in the centre.

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and add the buttermilk and melted butter.

Pour this into the well of the dry ingredients and gradually whisk together.

Put the batter in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour.

Heat a large frying pan and add a little bit of oil.

Spoon in dollops of the mixture making sure that there is a little bit of space between them. This will depend on the size of your frying pan.

Cook them for 1 – 2 minutes until they start to bubble on the surface, turn and cook on the other side until golden.

Keep them warm in the oven whilst you batch cook the rest of the pancakes.

In a separate pan heat 1 tablespoon of oil and fry the bacon rashers until crisp.

Serve the pancakes in a stack with crispy bacon and maple syrup on top.

Alternatively, you could have these with fruit and maple syrup as Ryan did.

If you enjoy Pancakes then maybe take a look at my Simple Pancake Recipe of these easy to make Pancake Kebabs which are great to make with the kids.

These little pancakes are so cute. You can make a batch up and freeze, and then you can take a few out the night before for breakfast.

Isabelle had her friend over to play today so it was the perfect time to test these out. Apologies for my none too professional maple syrup drizzle. I think I need a bit more practice!

To make the pancakes you will need:

135g Plain flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Caster Sugar
130ml/ 4 1/2 fluid oz milk
1 large egg
2 Tbsp melted butter, plus extra for cooking

You will also need:

Short Wooden kebab sticks
2 Kiwi fruits
2 Bananas
A few Blueberries
Approx 8 Strawberries
Maple Syrup to serve

To make:

Sift the flour, baking powder and sugar into a bowl and add the salt.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg with the milk and melted butter.

Mix the wet and dry ingredients together then lightly whisk until well combined and lump free.

Make this mixture a little in advance as it works best if you put it into the fridge for a while.

Melt some butter in a frying pan and if you’re confident put a small amount of mixture in small blobs to make small bitesized pancakes. If not you can either use a squirty bottle or a round biscuit cutter to get the correct size.

Slice the fruit ready for construction.

Once all the pancakes are made you can make up the kebabs alternating pancakes and fruit or you could give them to the kids to make how they like.

To serve add a squeeze of maple syrup.

These got a massive thumbs up from both girls.

Yum!

Spicy Carrot and Lentil Soup

Spicy Carrot and Lentil Soup.

Spicy Carrot and Lentil Soup. The best bit of the cold weather are the scrummy soups, casseroles and home comfort food. I love a big bowl of soup, and it’s a great thing to make in advance, freeze and take out for work or a meal when you’re super busy.

Spicy Carrot and Lentil Soup

 

What you will need:

600g Carrots, washed and grated
140g Split red lentils
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Litre hot vegetable stock
2 Teaspoons Cumin Seeds
Pinch of  Chilli flakes
125ml Milk

Spicy Carrot And Lentil Soup
Heat a large saucepan and dry-fry the cumin seeds and chilli flakes for 1 min, or until they start to jump around the pan and start to smell yummy.

Spicy Carrot And Lentil Soup

Add the oil, carrot, lentils, stock and milk to the pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 mins until the lentils have swollen and softened.

Whizz the soup with a stick blender or in a food processor until smooth, but can be left chunky if you prefer and serve with naan bread and a dollop of yoghurt.

Really easy to make and totally scrummy.
