Do you flip or turn?
What am I talking about? Pancakes of course!
It’s coming up pancake day (or shrove Tuesday if you want to use the correct name) but ultimately we all know it as pancake day.
So what better than to celebrate Pancake Day than with some locally sourced pancake recipes?
I’d love to see if you make of these, please send in your photos and I’ll share them.
Right, let’s start with the first of the pancake recipes which is a savoury recipe and comes courtesy of Mellissa Brown of The Mouse Trap If you don’t happen to have any Perl Las cheese you can substitute for another Blue Cheese or nip into The Mouse Trap and they’ll be happy to sell you some.
How to make The Mouse Trap Blue Cheese Pancakes:
This pancake recipe makes 8-10 pancakes, depending on how big you make them 🙂
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix together the egg, milk, oil and stir into the dry ingredients until just moist. Crumble up and stir in the cheese.
Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot frying pan, once bubbles start to form on top of pancakes, turn (or flip). Cook until golden brown.
Yum! Next up, let’s get a sweet pancake recipe onboard.
I couldn’t have some pancake recipes without a chocolate one, and where better than to get in touch with The Chocolate Cafe!:
How to make Chocolate Cafe Chocolate Pancakes:
Again, this pancake recipe should make roughly 8-10 pancakes:
Paul says “My cocoa pancakes with grated chocolate are super simple.
To a cup of plain flour add one teaspoon of quality cocoa powder and a pinch of salt.
Whisk in one cup of milk and two free range eggs.
Pour the mixture in a frying pan a cook until golden brown.
Once the pancake is cooked simply grate over a hearty measure of your favourite chocolate bar whilst the pancake is still hot.”
How to make Grind and Tamp Tea Pancakes:
One last pancake option here, and what better from Grind and Tamp then a tea flavoured pancake?
Adrian has provided and excellent option here, don’t forget to try the chocolate sauce too.
- Whizz all of this together in a blender (or a whisk and bowl works just as well)
- Heat up the hob and make sure the pan is well oiled – I used a teaspoon of coconut oil
- Add a blob of the mixture into the pan, wait until the bottom starts to turn brown, then flip over
- Cook evenly on both sides
White choc sauce
100ml double cream
100g white chocolate
1. Put chocolate & cream in a pan warm gently & stir until a smooth sauce is achieved
Stack five pancakes, drizzle with warm white chocolate sauce & finish with some fresh berries, I like a few blueberries, strawberries & blackberries with a little picked mint
This serves 1 portion
