It’s Pancake Tuesday Tomorrow: Time To Make The Pancake Batter

February 15, 2010 by Editor

The key, in my mind, feature of a good pancake batter is that it is made either the day before or the morning of the pancake making. Back in 2008 I made this somewhat basic but still useful How To Make Pancake Batter Video for the now (sadly) defunct Our Grannies’ Recipes website.

It is really a very simple mix, and here is the recipe. Tomorrow, I’ll post the Cooking the Pancake video.

Recipe: A Traditional Pancake Batter

Summary: A good batter should be made at least a few hours in advance

Ingredients

    • 4oz of Self Raising Flour
      half a pint of full-fat milk
      1 medium egg (I prefer free range)
      A pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Thoroughly mix the ingredients together in a bowl using a whisk (make sure to completely mix the ingredients as lumps will ruin a good pancake). 
  2. Pour the mix into a jug and allow to stand at the very least for a few hours.
  3. Cook in a shallow frying pan over a low to medium heat for 3-4 minutes, depending in your personal taste.
