I regret not taking any decent pictures of the pancake tower, but they were warm and calling for us... so I'm afraid this is it:
We had a mix of sweet and savoury - bacon and scrambled egg, butter, honey and lemon and sugar.
I really ought to get some Maple Syrup!
Here's the recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups of milk
- 2 cups of flour (and a bit more if batter is too runny)
- 2 tablespoons full of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon full of baking soda
Bang everything in a bowl and beat with electric mixer.
Grease a frying pan with butter and then remove excess butter with kitchen paper - keep the greasy paper nearby.
Once the pan is hot and well greased, pour about half a laddle and let it set. Once the batter starts bubbling and the bottom is set and light brown, quickly flip it over and wait for a minute or two - this side shouldn't take too long to cook.
Take it away from the heat, and rub the greasy paper on the frying pan prior to pouring the batter. Mind your fingers! If you've got asbestos fingers you should be okay, but it's probably wiser if you use a spoon or another utensil to rub the paper on the pan.
Add a tiny bit of butter if the greasy kitchen paper doesn't grease the pan enough.
If you're impatient like me, I would suggest you have two or three small frying pans on the go... I had two going on today and it took me about 10-15 minutes.
We didn't manage to eat them all, so I froze the rest for when I'm feeling lazy.
Just make sure you let them cool down and then separate them with baking paper before you place them in the freezer.
