LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

WOULD YOU PAY US 15EUROS FOR PANCAKES? HERE IS HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN

We have been indulging in a pancake frenzy this week. We were given a bottle of apple syrup as a gift. Apart from mixing it in tea, cakes, it would be pancakes of course.

We are really fascinated by the pure power of flour. Pancakes are really mostly flour, with some rising agents of course. Yet, people pay so much for pancakes. Yes, flour. Paying an average of 5-8euros for pancakes (per person) make us feel a bit sick. We have been making pancakes for breakfast this week, and the cost of making these babies is only about 50cents for 2 persons.

The Dutch love pancakes and they would eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They would have it with savoury items like ham and bacon, cheese, mushrooms, the list goes on. And then they would eat it with sugar syrup or sprinkle icing sugar on top. No wonder people need to down it with beer.

Pancakes have always been a breakfast item for us, always with syrup and fruits. Savoury pancakes just do not stomach very well for us, especially when the consistency of the dough is thick like sweet pancakes. Crepes are still our favorite savoury pancakes to go. Oh, and Asian pancakes are just in another league.

HOW TO MAKE A BASIC PANCAKE :

Serves 2-4
INGREDIENTS
  • 1¼ Cups Plain flour, sieved
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar, or jam, or syrup
  • 2½ Tsp Baking powder
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • 1¼ Cups Semi skimmed milk
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 Tbsp oil, we used vegetable oil, you can also try with butter or olive oil.
  1. Add the milk, egg, oil into a bowl and whisk vigourously until well combined.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and add slowly to the wet ingredients whisking as you go to prevent lumps continue until all the flour has been incorporated and you have a smooth batter.
  3. Heat a non-stick griddle pan and oil the surface. We love a medium heat pan.
  4. Pour ½ ladles of the batter on to the griddle, cooking until golden brown.
  5. Drizzle with any syrup and serve immediately! Golden and maple syrup is no doubt our all-time favorite for pancakes.
