Simple Pancake Batter Recipe

Simple Pancake Batter Recipe 

It won’t be long before Pancake Day.

My kids love to have pancakes and are requested quite often, especially as a Birthday breakfast.

Here is the most simple Pancake batter recipe that I’ve been using for years which can’t really go wrong.

My simple Pancake Batter Recipe is easy to make for the perfect pancakes
Simple Pancake Batter Recipe

What you need:

  • 100g Plain Flour
  • 1 Egg (large)
  • 300mls of Milk
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Butter for frying.

How to:

Crack the egg into a bowl and add milk and whisk. Gradually sift in the flour stirring as you go along. Add in a pinch of salt and mix.

I always at this point put the batter mixture in the fridge for about half an hour which I was told to do by my mum but not sure why.

Melt butter in a frying pan and put on hob until hot.

Depending on size of pan add just enough batter to cover the bottom of the pan.

Flip or use a flipper (fish slice) until golden on both sides.

To make a batch I have the oven on low and keep adding them to the oven until the whole batch is cooked and then serve.

Toppings

You can’t beat just sugar and lemon in my opinion but of course the possibilities are endless. Here are a few to get you going, but please feel free to add suggestions in the comments.

  • Maple Syrup
  • Golden Syrup
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jam
  • Cream of any sort
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • Ice cream
  • Nutella
  • Honey
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cinnamon

If you fancy something more than the simple pancake batter recipe then make sure you have a look at our Pancake Kebab Recipe or why not give American Pancakes a go topped with Maple Syrup and Bacon.

#whatwedidthisweek – This week has been a really tough week.

This week has been one of those weeks where I’ve regretted my decision to work full-time. It’s only a temporary measure and ends in the middle of July, but at the moment I’m so tired that I wish I could fast-forward to July.

It’s also frustrating as I’d much rather be here blogging my butt off but hey we all have bills to pay.

So Pancake Day we had normal pancakes with sugar and lemon (the kids had fruit as well).

We seem to be ending our days at the moment by putting on music and having a bit of a boogey before winding down with a game of some sort. We have a version of headbands, but the one we have has glasses that you attach the cards to and each person has to guess what animal or person they have. It’s my least favourite game of Isabelle’s as she cheats something chronic. We have coloured glass doors on one of our units so she either looks in glass on the unit or looks at her reflection in the TV and then pretends (badly) that she doesn’t know who her character is and strings it out for ages. I’ve hidden this game away for the time being as one day it will be quite fun.

Rubbish Weather

The weather has been pretty pants this week with lots of rain and wind.

My biggest is going to turn eighteen next month.

Eighteen years old!

I thought looking after a baby was difficult, but sorry to say it but having a teenager is way harder. All those hormones and teenage mood swings.

World Book Day

It was World Book Day on Thursday and having just watched Alice Through the Looking Glass we thought Isabelle would like to dress up as Alice. However, she opted for the Queen of Hearts so she could say ‘Awf with her head!!’.

Whatwedidthisweek

Saturday was Rainbows morning which wasn’t as fun as she thought it was going to be.  Her friend wasn’t there so she was a bit reluctant to stay. We should have made the most of having daddy home with us this weekend, but as I’ve been so tired and achy I’ve been a bit of a hermit this weekend.

Getting Outdoors

We did get out with the dog today and Isabelle had a really good time jumping in all of the puddles. Charlie (the dog) didn’t look too thrilled as he’s a bit of a wuss when it comes to water.

#whatwedidthisweek

Isabelle was soaked inside her wellies and everything but she had a good time, and they will dry.

#whatwedidthisweek – What did you do this week?

Pancake Kebab Recipe

Pancake Kebab Recipe

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!
