Pancake Day is nearly here – time for some flipping fun! We share some of our favourite pancake recipes for you to try at home on 28th February – the Chateau Rouge way…
Any of these recipes are flexible and can be adapted to use dairy alternatives or gluten-free flours. There are also so many different ways to serve your pancakes, depending on the strength of your sweet tooth. Time to experiment?
Try these light, delicious pancakes, French style! Ooh la la!
Why not make this a really indulgent treat, by adding fresh fruit, cinnamon, some honey, or perhaps a tablespoon of your favourite jam or spread to the crepes? You can serve them in layers, with gooey, sweet spread in between, or roll up individual crepes with a layer of jam drizzled down the middle. We recommend trying the Chateau Rouge Artisanal Organic 100% Fruit Blackberry or Apricot Peach Spreads.
Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. In another, lightly beat the egg and whisk together with the milk. Pour this unto the bowl with the flower mixture and beat into a smooth batter, so there are no lumps.
Add a little butter or oil to a non-stick pan and place over a medium heat. Add a few tablespoons of the pancake batter, aiming to cook a couple of pancakes at a time. American pancakes are thicker, so you want them to be around 1cm thick when completely risen. When you see the top of the pancakes start to bubble, flip them over and cook on both sides until nicely browned and fully risen.
Best served with maple syrup, honey, jam or some gently melted butter. Yum!
Serve drizzled with jam, fruit spread, syrup, or some fresh berries – these go really well with raspberries and blueberries.
Use the same method as for the American pancakes recipe, but stir in the cheese once you have whisked the batter. Once the pancakes are ready, spread with a little Chateau Rouge Artisanal Organic Fig and Walnut Spread.
Crumble or grate a little more cheese on top, add some walnut quarters, and a little freshly ground pepper. Delicious!
