Happy pancake day - not sure the other countries have it. It is supposed to be the time to get rid of the perishable food before a 40 day fast - but mine will be one day!!
So make sure all is done correct.
100gm plain flower
beat all together and add a little more milk if like a thinner batter
then let it stand for 30 mins - very important to allow some chemical reactions to take place.
Heat some lard in a non-stick pan - this is not meant to be a healthy meal so oil is not appropriate - the lard will give a better flavour to the pancakes
When the fat starts to smoke it is hot enough - pour or ladle the batter into the pan and swirl around to cover the pan - when it starts to smoke again it has to be tossed - or flipped if children present!! It does not taste correct if it is flipped with a spatula - it must be tossed into the air and caught again - I am good at this tossing as I live on my own so can cook!
when it starts to smoke again slide onto a warm plate
repeat until the pile of pancakes reaches the ceiling!
cover with your fav speads - usually fruity or sweet - so lemon and orange juice with sugar is popular
being a diabetic I have to be careful so I prefer golden syrup spread on individual pancakes and rolled as in the pic below - I also spread with strawberry jam and roll up - when all ready to eat I use my fingers being a common boy
Keep smiling - It's free!
