Who doesn't love pancakes? Every Pancake Tuesday, houses all over the country can be heard say 'We should have these more often'!! Pancakes are a fantastic breakfast/lunch or tea any time in the year. They can be savoury as well as sweet and are really quick and easy to make. I think that this is a Delia recipe that I remember reading years ago.
If planning on having the pancakes for breakfast, I would always recommend (where possible) making them (in the blender) the night before and stick the blender jug in the fridge ready to go in the morning. Anything to save a few minutes when getting them out the door to school.
- Prep: 5 mins
- Cook: 10 mins
- Yields: 12-14 Pancakes
The kids can do all the preparations here, from weighing out the flour to cracking in the eggs. If you have kids 8 and over, they could actually cook the pancakes (under adult supervision)
Suggestions for fillings are:
- Sweet : Lemon and sugar (classic)
- Sweet : Chocolate spread and banana
- Sweet : Golden syrup and blueberries
- Savoury : Mushrooms and spinach
- Savoury : Ham and cheese and rocket
What are your favourite pancake fillings?
