Whether you are staying at a self-catering little hideaway or a secluded campsite. Nothing makes people happier than pancakes for breakfast. Propper pannekoeke. The key to my heart lies in a good pancake and nothing gives me greater pleasure than gooi-ing together a lekker breakfast for friends.
On your next average self-catering adventure, take along a tiny bag of these ingredients and make your mates smile.
This is my FOOL PROOF recipe.
What you need:
- 200g plain flour
- 350-400ml milk or ½ milk ½ water for a lighter pancake
- 2 large eggs, lightly whisked
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- pinch salt
- vegetable oil, for frying
What you do (with the stuff you needed)
Put the flour into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and eggs. Give the liquid mixture a quick whisk before incorporating the flour. Continue to whisk until you have a smooth batter.
Now add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and whisk thoroughly.
Take a large frying pan, dip some kitchen roll in the oil and carefully wipe the inside of the pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat for a minute.
Add just under a ladleful of batter to the pan and immediately start swirling it around the pan to get a nice even layer.
Cook the pancake for approximately 30-40 seconds. Use a flat flippy thing to lift the pancake carefully to look at the underside to check it is golden-brown before turning over. Cook the other side for approx 30-40 seconds and transfer to a serving plate.
- Add STUPID amounts of cinnamon sugar and a proper squeeze of fresh lemon.
Lekker eet 😉
