Well it is Pancake Day isn’t it?
Right I won’t bore you with a recipe for a pancake batter, if you’ve made it this far I think you either a. know how to make it or b. can operate a computer well enough to search for a decent recipe on the t’internet. I thought I’d just share my pancake dinner with you and share my ideas.
I was a little concerned for the potential lack of veg in a traditional pancake supper and seeing as I was cooking for me and my lil lady I thought I would attempt to include a good few of our five a day. So for pancake dinner tonight I made some cheese and vegetable pancakes, that sounds a little dull doesn’t it but I can’t think of a snazzy title right now and they were yummy honest. Then for dessert we ate pancakes with cinnamon apples and ice cream.
For the veggie pancakes:
I added a good shake or two of smoked paprika and some garlic salt to the batter ( i made gf but i’m sure you have your own fav recipes).
For the filling I softened some onions, added some grated carrot, a chubby clove of garlic (chopped) and fried in a pan. Then at the last minute flung in two great big handfuls of spinach and set aside in a bowl. I then grated some cheese and stirred it into the veg mix, fried off my pancake on one side, flipped, added stuffing and rolled up in the pan. You can pop the rolled pancakes into the oven to keep warm whilst you make the rest.
For pancake pudding, I added a little sugar and some vanilla to a basic batter mix then fried off some apples with sugar, butter and cinnamon and filled the pancakes with them. I served them up with a squeeze of agave syrup and some vanilla ice cream.
What did you do with yours?
