Pancake Blog Party Week : DAY 3

Hello there
Some of Jen’s dearest friends are leaving to get married in South Africa and we are going out for a farewell dinner tonight.
In honour of them, how amazing would cake made out of pancakes be?
You are right. It would be pretty Awesome.

Shani’s American pancake breakfast

Serves 4

1 egg
100ml buttermilk or plain yoghurt
100 ml milk
250g self raising flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1tbsp oil
1tbsp butter or margerine
2 rashers ofgrilled bacon per person
maple syrup to serve

1    Beat the egg and then thoroughly mix in the buttermilk and milk
2    Add the salt and sugar
3    Gradually beat in the flour until it is thoroughly combined. The mixture is thicker than normal pancake batter – more of a thick double cream consistency.
4    Leave the batter in a cool place to rest for at least 15 minutes. You should see that the batter has thickened a little more and small bubbles are rising to the surface
5    Put the oil and butter into a frying pan and heat to a medium heat, carefully pour the oil off into a bowl (you will need a pastry brush or some kitchen towel to wipe oil onto the pan from this bowl after each batch of pancakes is made)
6    Pour a tablespoon of batter onto the frying pan. You should get 3-4 pancakes in the pan at a go, depending on the pan’s size. Don’t pour them too close together as they spread a little
7    The pancakes will start to puff up and bubbles with rise to the surface. At this point carefully flip them with a spatula. The top should be a nice golden brown
8    Keep each batch of pancakes warm in the oven, along witht the bacon
9    Serve the pancakes with the bacon. If you want to be really American, pour some maple syrup over the pancakes too!

Tip: These pancakes are also really good with some plain yoghurt and a nice seasonal fruit compote

  1. I know from experience that Shani’s buttermilk pancakes are truly irresistable. It’s like eating clouds, in a good way 😉
