This is a basic pancake mix that I use to make traditional pancakes or crepes. This will make about 12 pancakes or 8 crepes.
I'm French and I invested in a Krampouz pan to make crepes (see photo) because I make these alot. A flat frying pan will work just as well. It's important to let the batter rest for a few hours.
This is our family pancake batter that we've been using for years. It's quite a thin batter but cooks easily and the pancakes are simply delicious with orange or lemon juice and a sprinkling of sugar.
Having pancake mix ready in your cupboard eases the pressure when a pancake breakfast or brunch is in popular demand!
Buckwheat flour adds a delicious nuttiness to crepes or pancakes, typical of what you'll find in Brittany, France.
These chocolate pancakes are made by adding cocoa powder to the flour. The batter is quite runny so make them a little thicker than a crepe and they'll be easier to turn.
These savoury pancakes are flavoured with tomato juice and herbs. They are filled with ham and Gouda cheese when still warm. They make a lovely brunch dish that the whole family can enjoy.
These gluten free crepes are made with a range of alternative flours including rice flour, potato flour, tapioca flour and xanthan gum to make the texture just as good as traditional crepes. They are also great to make as thicker pancakes and will hold their shape in the pan, such as penguins or a face, etc. I like to double this recipe and use the batter up over a couple of days.
These mini puffed pancakes are made with self-raising and buckwheat flour to give them a light, spongy texture. They are topped simply with a little butter and a sprinkling of icing sugar. If you do not have a poffertjes pan, use a large frying pan and scoop a small tablespoon of batter per poffertje into the pan. Make sure you leave approximately 2cm of space between each poffertje so that they do not stick together.
The secret to fluffy pancakes is to separate the eggs and whip the egg whites until stiff. This method makes the pancakes lovely and fluffy. This is a really nice brunch dish to make on a lazy weekend morning!
