Its pancake day, coincedently it's also my niece's 3rd bday...she lives in South Africa so we miss her terribly and wish we were there to celebrate it with her!!!
Over the week end she had a ladybird themed bday party! She looks so cute! Look at that ladybird cake, how adorable is that?! ;)
We miss her lots and am gonna make pancakes today thinking of her too!
Here is my simple pancake recipe...
100g white plain flour
1 teaspoon olive oil (plus more for greasing the pan)
Sift the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and break in the egg.
Add a little milk and stir gently. Add the rest of the milk slowly and stir until smooth. Stir in the water and oil and beat for one minute.
(If you have an electric whisk bung all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until you have a smooth batter)
Heat a drop of oil in a large frying pan. When the pan is really hot, pour in just enough batter to cover the pan with a thin coating. Cook for just under a minute - using a spatula to keep an eye on how it's cooking.
Now the fun bit ... FLIP IT - or if you find you're dropping too many, turn it over with the spatula! Cook the other side for 15 seconds.
Have fun!!!! Monica xx
