It’s Pancake Day today and I have to admit that about three years ago I did not even know that it existed. I just thought, what another crazy English invention and didn’t think much of it. Little did I know about how important it is for kids and families: Pancake Day is an institution in this country and by now I have realised that there is no way of escaping it. So why not simply join the fun?
We’ve started the day with this simple recipe for pancakes and it made enough pancake mix for about ten pancakes:
200 grams of sieved flour
3 medium sized eggs
550 ml of milk
1 pinch of salt
We’ve gone for the classic English lemon and sugar topping, which I’ve only been introduced to last week, but to be honest you can top your pancakes with whatever you like. If you want to try it the German way go for lots of apple sauce and sugar. It’s absolutely delicious!
If your little one loves to help you in the kitchen, I do also have the perfect Pancake Day competition for mummies and daddies of messy little helpers: Tracey from Maddigan Mooch has kindly offered to make a handcrafted apron for the winner of today’s Pancake Day competition.
