It's pancake time

February 24, 2022

Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day is next week so here are some different ideas for how to eat yours.

Savoury pancakes: Make 2 pancakes per person (20-24cm in diameter).  Take a couple of handfuls of chopped, cooked veg per pancake (carrots, leeks, broccoli, peas, cauliflower, green beans all work well.  Plan to cook extra veg the day before to give you plenty of leftovers to use).  Make a cheese sauce to coat the veggies and place the cheesy veg down the middle of each pancake.  Fold or roll the pancakes so they fit in a baking tray .  Sprinkle with grated cheese and grill until melted.

Sweet pancakes: Pop 100g porridge oats into a jug with a couple of eggs and 300ml of milk of your choice.  Whizz with a stick blender until smooth.  Allow to stand for 10 - 30 minutes to allow the oats to absorb the liquid.  If it's a bit thick add a drop more milk.

Fry in a hot frying pan until golden on each side and serve with Greek yogurt, berries and chopped nuts.

Makes around 10 mini pancakes.  Good for breakfast or pudding!
