Any of these methods are very flexible and can be adapted to use dairy alternatives or also 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 one of our organic 100% fruit jams from Corsica.
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 into the mixing bowl with the flour 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 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 wholly 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. Or even with delicious fresh blueberry pancakes Yummy, healthy sweet pancakes!
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 of our organic fig and walnut jam.
Crumble or grate a little more cheese on top, add some walnut quarters, and a little freshly ground pepper. Delicious!
