Re: who's stuffing your pancake tonight?

Hi guys !.
     Our family and everyone I asked might be cooking the pancakes different to the way people outside of the UK do it. It has to be in a large frying pan , at least 11 1/2 inches (29 cm). The batter must be  put in JUST enough to cover the pan, making a nice thin pancake. Toss the pancake and when ready put on a plate. Add the taste of your choice, roll the pancake by hand into a inch and a half tube that goes flat and add a topping if you want. Our favorite is lemon juice  with sugar sprinkled on top, roll the pancake and put more lemon and sugar on. Try it its nice.
  Keep smiling,
     Ady.

Re: who's stuffing your pancake tonight?

Just for comparison purposes, what batter recipe do you guys use?
Mine's:
220g plain flour
400ml full-cream milk
150ml water
4 tbsp sugar
4 eggs
salt
80 g melted butter
Mix all together until smooth and lumpless.  Makes about 20-24.  For Pancake Day, we make 4 times this quantity.  Whee!

Re: who's stuffing your pancake tonight?

Rome, isnt the olive oil a bit too strong for the sweet pancakes?

I dont have a recipe written down, I just throw it together.

I find it ok, but that might be because we produce our own olive oil and it's quite delicate.
