Pancake Day Recipes at Housewife Confidential

Half term is booooring. At least that’s the message I got yesterday. Thankfully it was delivered with a solution: make a video about making pancakes, “Just like Jamie Oliver does Mama. And he always eats the food at the end.” I can’t argue with reasoning like that so we broke out the pancakes a day early to make you a video.

We created three fillings for your enjoyment and when I say your enjoyment I really mean theirs. Is there anything better than being allowed to eat excesses of sugar as an actual main meal? I don’t think so.

Milla, Monty and Betsy really love making videos and they wonder if they should make more. If you (and your children) would like to see more silliness on video please give them a thumbs up. I’m considering giving them their own YouTube channel so it would really help me to know if people want to see more.

Pancake Recipe

500ml of Whole Milk

250g plain flour

2 eggs

  • Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until you have a smooth paint-like batter.
  • Heat a small knob of butter in a pan (a pancake pan if you have one or a frying pan if you don’t).
  • When the pan is hot and the butter starts to sizzle ladle in enough batter to cover the base of the pan.
  • Cook for a moment and when the batter begins to firm run a spatula around the edge of the pancake.
  • When the bottom of the pancake has lightly browned, flip it over and cook the other side for a minute further.
  • Serve piping hot!

Here are the three toppings we used in the video. My personal favourite is lemon and sugar which if gussied up by using cinnamon sugar.

Caramelised Bananas with ice cream and nuts

2 Bananas

1 tbsp of cinnamon sugar (caster sugar with a sprinkling of cinnamon mixed in)

1 big knob of butter (or olive oil for vegan / dairy free)

A scoop of vanilla ice cream

Toasted chopped hazelnuts

  • Slice the bananas.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the bananas and roll them around until they are coated.
  • Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the butter.
  • Pour in the bananas and stir as they sizzle in the butter.
  • When they are a caramel brown turn them over and cook the other side being careful not to burn the sugar.
  • Allow them to cool for a minute or two (especially if serving to children) and then spread on your pancake with the ice cream and nuts.

Chocolate Spread and Raspberries

Hazelnut & chocolate spread

A punnet of raspberries

  • Slather the pancake in chocolate spread.
  • Scatter raspberries over the top.
  • Roll the pancake and congratulate yourself on being a delicious genius.

Lemon and Cinnamon Sugar

Cinnamon sugar (caster sugar with a sprinkling of cinnamon mixed in)

Fresh lemons

  • Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the pancake.
  • Squeeze lemon onto the sugar and roll your pancake up.

    I think you 3 are fab and should definitely make more videos! Its great to see you cooking and having fun together and your pancakes look delicious. I shall have to try your trick with the bananas and sugar, I’d never thought to cook them before. Was your mama making funny faces at you from behind the camera? You made me laugh when you kept laughing! Well done and I look forward to the next one :)
