    So I’ve whipped up this years batch of pancake batter all ready for tomorrow (here’s a link to the recipe I use and a video of how to make the mix). Tomorrow I’ll be cooking for quite a few folks. It’ll be fun! If you need some help on the cooking side, try this video.

  3. 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.
