Pancake Day Easy Recipes

Pancake Day is fast approaching and it seems to be time to start looking up some Pancake Day easy recipes. Here is a wide range of ideas and recipes that you can look over and see if they sound tasty enough to try. There are some healthy and not so healthy options.

Experiment

To get you started on the Pancake Day easy recipes hunt, here are a few different styles that can hopefully fulfill everyones pancake needs this Tuesday.

Traditional Style

The traditional style thin crepe like pancakes contain eggs, plain flour, salt, eggs, milk, and of course caster sugar and a squeeze of lemon on top.

Here is a step by step breakdown of how to make this style:

Ingredients (serves 4 to 6):
  • - 250g plain flour
  • - 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • - 2 large eggs
  • - 500ml milk
Sift the flour and salt with a sieve into a large mixing bowl, add eggs, pour in half of the milk and whisk briskly. Add the remaining milk and whisk until the batter is smooth. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat, add a small piece of butter and swirl the pan to coat the bottom. Using a ladle, pour the pancake batter into the pan, then tilt the pan to spread the mixture out evenly. As your pancake sets, shake the pan to see if the pancake is loose. Once the pancake doesn't stick, flip the pancake over with a palette knife or spatula and let it cook for half a minute. Slide the pancake onto a plate and give the finishing touch sprinkling some caster sugar and few drops of lemon on it.

American Style

The fluffy American style pancakes could be a fun alternative to the crepe style. The main difference is adding baking powder to the recipe and drizzling maple syrup and bluberries on top.

Healthy Style

For those that would like to stay on the healthier side of things for this pancake Tuesday, here are a few easy changes to make.

Some healthy substitutions would be using soy milk instead of whole milk, adding fruit on top rather than sugar or syrup, and using whole wheat flour rather than plain flour.

People that are celiac could substitute tapioca and rice flour for the regular flour.

Something Fresh

Rather than put the fruit on top of the pancakes, why not put them in the batter. Go ahead and throw some cinnamon and vanilla in the batter and see how it tastes. The options are endless!
