Everybody is familiar with pancakes and French toast, some have heard of scones, but there are other similar and slightly less familiar Anglo-Saxon batter recipes, for example pikelets.
Another quick fix for Saturday morning that the kids (and adults) can enjoy.
The combination of a little sodium bicarbonate with vinegar causes a swift light rising during the cooking, producing an interesting volume that does not exist in most pancakes.
Ingredients (for approx. 20 pieces) – multiply by 2 or 3 if you have more than 1 kid
1 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp sodium bicarbonate
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 tbsp. oil
Mix everything in a blender
Heat a lightly oiled/buttered heavy frying pan on low heat
Pour mixture into pan in quantities of 2-3 tsp
Turn over when bubbles start to burst (underside should be brown)
Leave for approx. 30 sec. and remove
Do NOT turn back over!
Double the amount easily fits in a blender (some blenders can take a triple batch)
Tastes great as-is, and also with jam, honey, sugar & cinnamon, maple syrup, and whipped cream – in short – Yummy!
