Papa G’s Perfect Pancakes

We love Pancake Day in this family but to be honest Papa G has a penchant for pancakes all year long; I distinctly remember treat breakfasts of piles of pancakes growing up and my Dad teaching my brother and I how to make the perfect pancake.

My favourite has to be the classic sugar and lemon combo but here Papa G pushes the boat out for one epic pancake feast with raspberries, strawberries and lemon toppings!

I’m re-sharing this classic archive post as it’s Papa G’s birthday today! Happy Birthday Dad!

pancake in a pan-Honest Mum

Ingredients:

200g plain flour
2 free range and organic medium eggs
50g unsalted butter, melted plus extra for frying
400ml milk
15g caster sugar
a pinch of salt
150g raspberries
2 lemons, rind grated then cut into wedges, to serve
4 tbsp caster sugar for sprinkling

Method:

1. Put the sifted flour, eggs, melted butter, caster sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Mix gently, then whisk in the milk until you have a smooth batter with no lumps.
Cover and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

2. Stir the batter gently before using.

3. Put a little butter in a non-stick frying pan set over a medium heat and let it melt (not smoking) and coat the pan.

4. Using a ladle, pour a 13 cm circle of batter into the pan and evenly spread a quarter of the raspberries on top of the pancake.

5. Cook for 2 minutes or until the pancake is golden brown on one side. Gently lift the edges with a small palette knife until you can feel it is completely detached from the pan and flip the pancake over. Cook the other side for a further 2 minutes.

6. Lift the pancake from the pan and turn it over on to a serving plate. Scatter with lemon rind and some of the caster sugar and serve with a lemon wedge.

Repeat until you cook all four perfect pancakes.

Handy tip: You can make use blueberries or strawberries, lemon rind and sugar or a combination of these instead.

    Thanks for hosting. We enjoyed pancakes on Pancake Day, but as I linked up pancakes last week, something different this time. My carrot muffins which is the first recipe in a series of posts featuring Sugar and Crumbs products. Their Salted Caramel Icing is delicious.

    These look fantastic and oh so delicious. I am jealous. Due to egg allergies pancake day isn’t celebrated in this house. Sadly because I used to love them ever so much!!! These recipes will have to go in a safe place so when the kids are out of the house Momma can have herself some scrumptious fancy pancakes. Happy Pancake day!!! Thanks for sharing.

    These look amazing! It is such a great idea to cook the fruit in the batter. I would never have thought of doing that. Mel

    Yummy looking ideas for Shrove Tuesday! I’m a bit of a fan of the traditional lemon and sugar combo and usually follow a Delia recipe for mine (with the best speciality or organic eggs, which have the most gorgeous, rich coloured yolks). Having said that, Mr Chick makes the most amazing American-style pancakes with buttermilk, serves them with maple streaky bacon and maple syrup – and they’re delectable. On that note – I’m gonna get some breakfast!
