It’s that delicious time of year again, Pancake Tuesday!
Here’s a little recipe to get you going for the day, I have gone for thin and crispy crepes style.
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
Throw everything in a bowl and mix it up. Giving it a final mix with a hand blender really speeds up the process. Then your batter is ready to go.
Get them into a really hot pan and they will be ready in a tick.
Now here at Handsome and Pretty we recently learned a little trick to keeping your pancakes warm while you are making more. Up until now we have been in the business of speedily eating each hot pancake as it comes off the pan so as we can get making the next one. But this is madness, everybody should be able to eat their pancakes together in a civilised manner. Have you come up against this issue yourself? Do you have any tricks to keeping them warm while you make up enough for everybody to enjoy? Well here is our trick courtesy of kind room-mate. Boil up a saucepan of water and set your colander on top of the saucepan. Cut a few sheets of greaseproof paper and have them at the ready. Then as each hot tasty pancake is ready place it in the colander with a sheet of greaseproof paper between each one. This keeps them piping hot till you are ready to serve them all up. Isn’t it just genius? The pancake maker actually gets to enjoy hot pancakes at the same time as everybody else.
