Luca’s grandpa has the easiest recipe for pancakes in the world…we guarantee (well, almost) that it won’t fail you come Shrove Tuesday (Feb 12th this year).
What you’ll need for enough batter for about six pancakes:
– 1/2 pint of milk
– 1 large egg
– half a mug of flour
What to do:
Add a third of a pint of milk to a mixing jug (we usually use semi-skimmed – I’d avoid skimmed. Full fat would be okay too).
Chuck 1 large egg in too (well, breaking it carefully first – not literally just chucking it in)
Give it a whisk.
Then find a standard size tea or coffee mug. Fill it half full with plain flour.
Add that to the jug where the milk and egg is.
Whisk thoroughly. It should be the consistency of double cream. If it’s slightly too runny, add about a tablespoon of extra flour. Too runny pancake mixture will stick to the pan.
Leave the mixture to settle for maybe ten minutes IF you can wait that long (sometimes we can’t and need our pancakes NOW!)
We’d love to know what your favourite pancake topping is…ours are Nutella or Golden Syrup!
