Toad in the Hole

Toad in the Hole

I’ve not made this for a really long time and after recently having Yorkshire puddings with my Nana, it gave me a real craving for more lovely batter! There are lots of slightly different ways to make the batter, for me the key is to get as much air in it as possible, so get those wrists strengthened!

Pancakes

Pancakes

Little bit late I know, but how many people give up the ingredients in pancakes these days? Mostly its things like chocolate or whatever it is you have been trying to cut down on since you made your new years resolution but have failed miserably.

Basic Pancake batter
4oz plain flour
2oz butter
2 Eggs
10 fl oz milk
Pinch of salt

1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl
2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it.
3. Then begin whisking the eggs -incorporating any bits of flour from around the edge of the bowl as you do so.
4. Next gradually add small quantities of the milk and water mixture, still whisking (don’t worry about any lumps as they will eventually disappear as you whisk).
5. Melt the 50g/2oz of butter in a pan. Spoon 2 tbsp of it into the batter and whisk it in, then pour the rest into a bowl and use it to lubricate the pan, using a wodge of kitchen paper to smear it round before you make each pancake.

So these are some of the pancakes I made to celebrate me not giving up anything for Lent.
