Pancake Day recipes - Shrove Tuesday 04.Mar.14

94 posts in this topic

So, it's pancake day aka shrove Tuesday tomorrow. Time to use up all your perishables in time for Lent, and make pancakes!

Ok, so I'm not religious and don't do fasting, but have any of you got any favourite recipes for me to try?

 

I like - Jif (lemon juice, not bleach) and sugar

or nutella

or fish fingers and ketchup

or maple syrup

€ 2 bottles of prosecco from PikeyMarkt or Sparchav.

Open bottles and pour down throat.

Add cheeky little Vodka Feiglings to taste

Shake around Viktualianmarkt and Gärtnerplatzviertel rigerously

 

You'll by lying flat as a pancake by the time the bells ring in Ash Wednesday! :lol:

if someone has the time to give the entire step by step guide to making pancakes you would be making this Schotte very happy.

For you, Schotte:

 

QUICK PANCAKE AND WAFFLE MIX

 

1 c. flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 egg

1 tbsp. oil (waffles only)

Milk to desired consistency

 

Stir dry ingredients. Add slightly beaten egg. Add oil if making waffles. Stir in milk until desired consistency. Should be thinner for pancakes. Any leftover mix can be stored in refrigerator 2-3 days. Just add milk to thin.

Gotta disagree with IPJ. Pancakes without some butter in the batter aren't very good. I use the Joy of Cooking recipe:

 

1 1/2 cup flour

1 t salt

3 T sugar

1 3/4 baking powder

2 eggs

3 T melted butter

1 (1/4) c milk

 

where the (1/4) cup of milk depends on how think you want them. Less milk, thicker batter, higher pancakes (which cook differently.)

 

Step by step? Briefly:

 

Mix the wet and dry separately. Add 'em together, and stir just enough to combine and no more.

 

Heat nonstick pan on medium heat, and when hot, add a bit of butter and spread it around. Drop glops of batter about a quarter cup full at a time, well separated. When you see lots of bubbles, it's time to flip, maybe two minutes depending on the thickness. Flip and cook another minute or two. Peek underneath to make sure you're not burning them.

 

This makes about nine pancakes the way I do it. This is why I miss the US: cheap pecans. :-))

a bit of applesauce also makes for great tasting pancakes :)

 

and if you separate your eggs and beat the egg whites and fold in at the end - makes them nice and fluffy.

 

But my FAVORITE recipe is for PUMPKIN pancakes - yummy!!

2 cups flour

2 Tbs granulated sugar

4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1.5 cups milk

1 cup pumpkin puree

4 eggs, separated

.25 cups melted butter

 

Sift together dry ingredients. Combine milk, egg yolks, butter and pumpkin

puree. Stir into dry ingredients until just blended. Beat egg whites

until stiff and fold into batter. Pour onto hot, oiled griddle, about

1/3 cup at a time. Cook until tops bubble and turn and cook other side.

ENJOY!!!

Gotta disagree with IPJ.

Not to be all technical on ya, but you're not really disagreeing with me. I never said that was the best recipe. It's just one I googled one time and made some pretty tasty pancakes with. ;)

 

I'll be sure and follow yours next time, though, since I tend to trust your opinion on culinary matters. :)

I like grtho's recipe of course.

Those pancakes you get in the Netherlands with bacon and fried eggs in are fab though.

Do any of the clog-wearing cheeseheads have a recipe for those? Please?

Ooh, I second he request for a Dutch pancake recipe! Those are definitely the best pancakes I've ever had (Speck en Kaas, alstublieft!).
