had to post this after seeing an advertisement for pancake mix in a bottle. You what?!! Since when did mixing flour, eggs, milk and a bit of water become so difficult that we now have it in a bottle?!! Honestly.

So this post is short, to prove a point.

PANCAKES ARE EASY. And it’s pancake Tuesday – the day to eat deliciously rich pancakes before commencing the 40 days of Lent. For Christians this is a time to remember Jesus’ time in the desert through which he fasted and prayed, before starting out to fulfil God’s plans. Throughout this time he was tempted by naughty Satan, yet resisted all temptations. Essentially, for Christians today Lent is a time throughout which to reflect on one’s relationship with God and to try to remove any temptation which is standing in the way of a more deep and meaningful relationship. Interestingly…Sundays are not included in the 40 days of Lent…just thought I’d put that out there for anyone toying with the idea of giving up chocolate…although really, that’s not what Lent should be about.

But anyway, I said this would be short, so more on that later and let’s stick to the pancakes!

  • 110g plain flour
  • 200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch salt

Sift the flour into a bowl and add the salt. Make a little well in the centre of the flour and crack the eggs into it. Whisk it all up with a fork, then gradually add small amounts of the milk/water mixture until you get a lovely smooth batter.

Melt a little butter in a non-stick pan over a medium heat, and add a ladle of batter – just enough to coat the bottom of the pan, plus a little more – you don’t want massively thick stodgy pancakes, but you don’t want them to turn into thin crispy ones either! If it’s going a little too crispy, turn the heat down. When the edges start to come away, slip a spatula underneath and flip it over to cook the other side.

Serve with whatever you like! Simples.
