Pancake day is coming!

Post by WILL*REMAIN*STRONG » Fri Jan 30, 2009 5:07 pm

Nutella Pancakes


Ingredients

• 2 eggs

• 45g plain white flour

• 15g cocoa powder

• 150ml milk

• 25g sugar

• Nutella

• Vanilla or chocolate ice cream


Method

1. Beat eggs and milk together.

2. Add sugar and cocoa powder, then flour.

3. Pass through a sieve and chill for 2 hours.

4. In a small frying pan, heat a knob of butter until it’s sizzling.

5. Pour in enough mix to thinly cover the base of the pan and to a depth of about 3mm.

6. When the top starts to firm up flip over and cook other side for about 2 minutes.

7. Remove from heat and set aside. Repeat until you’ve used all of the mix.

8. When all the pancakes are cooked, cover in Nutella, ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy. :)

That sounds tasty Will. I love eating pancakes, but don't enjoy making them. We usually have them with golden syrup. It's making me hungry just thinking about them. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

I love making pancakes, it is a messy job but someone’s got to do it. :lol: Eating them is yummy too of course, are you going to make some? You could buy shops own and smother them in something yummy.

I might get my hubby to have a go this year, although we may need a new kitchen afterwards. :wink:

Yes, I think we'll have some pancakes this year. We usually make them between us, taking turns eating and cooking then we can eat them straight out of the pan.
Do visitors ask if you have polystyrene tiles on the kitchen ceiling?
No, you say, they're last year's pancakes. :lol: :lol:
Men often leave a mess in the kitchen, they don't tidy up as they go along.
Keep calm and carry on.

I chucked one at the extractor fan last year, hubs just reminded me. He also reminded me that I made more mess than he did. :lol: Oh well I have been told. :oops:

I plan on making a huge mess now that he has to tidy up whilst I eat his share. :P

Just in case you don't know, Pancake Day is on February 24th.

I have a special frying pan for pancakes, it's not non-stick. Non-stick pans are hopeless for cooking good pancakes because you can't tip the pan and thus get a thin layer over the surface. Also, you can't get the pretty swirls on a NS fried pancake.

It's important to roll the pancake the right way round. If you look, one side will have swirls and the other side blotches. The pancake should be rolled with the blotches inside where you can't see them.

Our pancakes don't hang about long enough to be rolled. It's straight from the frying pan onto the plate, a quick dollop of golden syrup and then it's gone. It's making me hungry just thinking about them. :lol: :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Thanks for that Stoday, it probably explains why my pancakes are a bit messy. :oops:

I have to say, like apples, the pancakes go onto a plate and are covered in Nutella in my case and munched up without much thought to what they look like.

I’m a messy cook, last night I made a three course meal for me and hubby. The kitchen looked like a bomb had hit it and the preparation wasn’t professional at all, but it all tasted great.

It’s good to hear people make their own pancakes and don’t just buy them from the super market, it’s good fun to make your own isn’t it. Stoday your pancakes sound lovely. :)

As long as it tastes good Will, that's the main thing. :D You sound as though you have pancakes mastered Stoday. I have a small frying pan that I use for pancakes. It isn't non stick, and the first pancake sticks a little bit, but after that they're fine. The bought ones are sometimes a bit solid, we like them nice and thin. Yum, yum. Roll on pancake day. :D
Keep calm and carry on.

I hope you roll on the pancake after it has been cooked, other wise you would get a scorched bottom. :lol:

I might give this a try, it will be a new costume to wear on the day. :wink: No plate needed, I will be hubby's buffet on the go. 8)
