This coming Tuesday, the 5th March 2019, is Pancake Day, also called Shrove Tuesday, or Fat Tuesday — in German Faschingsdienstag. But do we really need a certain day to enjoy fluffy pancakes? Probably not. Americans like to have them for breakfast. The ones you will find throughout the US are a little thicker and slightly smaller than the ones in this recipe, though. Also, these pancakes are made out of whole wheat flour instead of plain white flour.
3 medium eggs dash of salt 300ml milk (1 1/4 cups) 200g whole wheat flour (1 1/2 cups) oil/butter to fry
- eggs with a dash of salt
- add milk (blend again)
- add flour (blend again, first on low speed, then on high speed)
In a frying pan melt 1-2 tsp of butter/oil. Over medium heat fry each pancake for about 2-4 minutes on each side.
Preheat oven to about 100°C (210°F). Stack pancakes on a baking sheet. OR Place fried pancakes on a dinner plate, cover with same size dinner plate.
* Makes about 6-8 salad-plate-sized pancakes. **I usually use a blender to mix the ingredients; works well for this amount of servings.
