I hope you’re hungry, for today I’m talking pancakes…
When I was in London a couple of months ago I made my first trip to The Breakfast Club and gorged myself on the pancakes and berries. From that first delicious mouthful I vowed to make my own at home, and here’s how I did it.
220g Plain Flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Caster Sugar
30g Butter (melted)
3 small eggs
Berries of your choice
Maple or Golden Syrup
- Firstly throw all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
- Then crack the eggs into the bowl and add the butter. Mix this a little with a whisk.
- Little by little add the milk and stir until you have a smooth batter.
- Pre-heat the oven to around 90 degrees centigrade (used to keep pancakes warm).
- Heat a heavy based frying pan with a little butter and pop in half a ladle of mixture.
- Let it sit until bubbles start to form, then flip and cook on the other side for around 45 seconds.
- Repeat this until all the mixture is gone, making sure to put the pancakes in the oven.
- Now stack your pancakes and top them with plenty of cream, syrup and berries.
Nothing will live up to The Breakfast Club pancakes, but I’m sure you’ll agree that these are a pretty good home alternative! Now excuse me while I go and whip up another batch…
