Happy Pancake Day!!! My Scrummy, Fluffy Pancakes Recipe...


I'm pretty sure saying 'Happy Pancake Day' isn't socially acceptable but I've done it anyway :) Of Course it's Shrove Tuesday that is going to get us geared up for Lent.

I LOOOOOOVE pancakes and since I've been hitting the gym I'm sure I deserve a treat. Here's the recipe I'll be using later on tonight in case you fancy joining in!

Beloved's Light and Fluffy Pancakes

The Main Ingredients:
1 large egg, lightly beaten
135g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
130ml milk
2 tbsp melted butter
(you can get all of these from your local supermarket for less than £5.00) 

Let's get down to business:
1.   Make sure you sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. This is important to make sure everything goes smoothly later on.

2.   In a separate bowl gently whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter. Be patient here and gentle - caress that mixture!

3.   Pour the milky mixture into the flour mixture and beat until you have a smooth batter. I use a fork here but you go with whatever you have to hand. Do it like your life depends on it to save time if you're getting pancake crazy at this point. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.... no cheating at this stage, leave it alone!!

4.   Heat a non-stick frying pan (these are an amazing buy if you haven't got one already) over a medium heat and add a square/knob of butter. When it's melted, add a ladle of batter to the pan. It will look very thick but this is how it should be I swear! 

5.   Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen. These are thicker than your normal pancakes but believe me they are scrummy. Keep going until all the batter is used..... You deserve all those lovely, warm fluffy beauties!

To Serve:
Basically you can go crazy here.....Make them very traditionally either with lemon or syrup or add fruit or even some sneaky chocolate sprinkles. I've also heard of friends going with bacon and eggs with their pancake creations or apple and banana so go mad and try as many flavours as you can.
