Its Pancake Day!

Pancakes!




Preparation time less than 30 mins
Cooking time less than 10 mins


Ingredients

For the pancake mixture:

110g/4oz plain flour, sifted

pinch of salt

2 eggs

200ml/7fl oz milk mixed with 75ml/3fl oz water

50g/2oz butter



1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it. Then begin whisking the eggs - any sort of whisk or even a fork will do - making sure you get any bits of flour from around the edge of the bowl as you do it.


Next gradually add small quantities of the milk and water mixture, still whisking (don't worry about any lumps as they will eventually disappear as you whisk).


When all the liquid has been added, use a rubber spatula to scrape any bits of flour from around the edge into the centre, then whisk once more until the batter is smooth.


Melt the 50g/2oz of butter in a pan. Spoon 2 tbsp of it into the batter and whisk it in, then pour the rest into a bowl and use it to lubricate the pan


Get the pan really hot then turn down to medium. As soon as the batter hits the hot pan, tip it around from side to side to get the base evenly coated with batter. It should take only half a minute or so to cook; you can lift the edge with a palette knife to see if it's tinged gold as it should be. Flip the pancake over with a pan slice or palette knife - the other side will need a few seconds only - then simply slide it out of the pan onto a plate.



serve and enjoy!


Why not add some fruit to them?


Try them with:

Sliced kiwi and strawberry with a dollop of ice cream


Wrap up a banana with a pancake and slice into small pieces

Whats In Season?

PEARS!!!



YUM! January is the season for pears! Pears are a great source of fibre and are also a good source of vitamin B2, C, E, copper, and potassium. They are often recommended by health care practitioners as a hypoallergenic fruit that is high in fibre. They are less likely to produce an adverse response than other fruits. Pears are often recommended as a safe fruit to introduce to infants.

Why not add some pear to a simple jelly! A quick and easy way to eat another 1 of your 5 portions a day!
