Woke up ridonculously late today. Yes, ridonuculously.
Oversleeping is a good excuse for having a casual brunch though, so I went for some savoury pancakes, oh yum.
I used to make pancakes quite regularly, but shockingly, today I realised I haven’t made a single one in the last two years! I made a couple of changes to my tried-and-test pancake batter by using half wholemeal flour instead of 100% plain flour, and adding a sprinkling of extra mature cheddar and some chopped ham whilst it was cooking in the frying pan. Delish. Flipping the pancake over caused some of the cheese to brown in a very yummilicious way, and the one pancake that didn’t get a large enough share of ham got a liberal squirting of tomato ketchup. Not particularly refined nor classy, but infinitely tasty.
Then I went shopping. AAAAAAND guess what I bought?
Am so poor now. But here’s a pancake recipe to keep you happy.
- 1 egg
- plain flour
- a sprinkling of grated cheddar, chopped ham, cooked sliced mushrooms
- salt and pepper
Crack the egg into a bowl and gently beat with a fork. Add enough flour until it is a thick gloopy mixture and really hard to stir. Then add a splash milk until it has thinned down a bit, add another spoonful of flour to thicken it up. and add another splash of milk. Then add enough milk or water to thin it down to a thin pancake batter consistency. Season well.
Heat up a pan with a splash of oil until hot hot hot, and ladle on a big spoonful of batter. Turn the pan so the batter covers the bottom of the whole pan, then cook for a bit and the top has set. Flip the pancake and cook the other side. Finally dish the pancake out onto a plate, sprinkle on the extra goodies, and fold the pancake in half. Enjoy thoroughly with a squirt of tomato ketchup.
