Shrove Tuesday get flipping!

Posted:16 February 2010

Just think fresh eggs from your own hens, a great pancake mix, and a delicious filling Shrove Tuesday heaven!

Well whilst we cant supply you with the first (although of course, well be enjoying the delicious eggs from our Garden House hens ourselves) we can encourage you to join our Hen Keeping Workshop on Saturday 13 March and we can suggest the recipe below!

1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre.  Break the egg into the well and add a little of the milk.  Mix the liquid ingredients together, then gradually beat in the flour until smooth.

2. Beat in the oil and the remaining milk to obtain the consistency of thin cream (or use a blender). Ideally, if you have time, cover the batter and leave to stand in the refrigerator for about 20mins.

3. Heat a pancake pan (or shallow frying pan), when hot brush with the minimum of oil.  Add a little extra milk to the batter if it is thick.  Pour a small amount of batter into the pan and swirl around until it is evenly and thinly spread over the bottom of the pan.

4. Cook over a moderate to high heat for about 1min or until the edges are curling away from the pan and the underside os golden.  Flip the pancake over using a palette knife and cook the second side.

5. Turn the pancake out, fill, roll, and eat!

6. Lightly oil the pan between pancakes and do the same as above until all the mixture is gone.

Handy tip: You can freeze pancakes; once cooked turn out, allow to cool and place non-stick baking parchment in between each one.  bag, seal and freeze, then reove however many pancakes you would like to consume at your leisure!  they take seconds to defrost and can be reheated with ease in a microwave or pan.

Toppings: (the best bit!)
