Cook Eat | The Best Pancake Recipe

On the Target product check on TV3 tonight, they road-tested store bought pancake mixes.  The host pointed out that the most basic pancake recipes only have 4 ingredients, so it’s a little disturbing when the ingredients listed on a pre-mix constitute an entire paragraph!

So in an endeavour to save you from the supermarket shelves, and maybe encourage you to branch out from the Edmonds Cook Book, I share with you our favourite pancake recipe (Dave should know a good pancake, seeing he grew up eating off the griddle an’ all!)

 

The Best Pancake Recipe

1 c. flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

3 tbsp. sugar

1 c. milk

1 egg

1/2 tsp. salt

Combine dry ingredients. Add milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth. Heat non-stick pan over medium heat until water beads. Do not oil. Pour pancake mixture in 1/4 cup amounts. Turn when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Remove from heat when pancake stops steaming.

These are THE BEST pancakes, we have them every Sunday.  This week Dave added chocolate chips and they were divine.  I love them with butter, lemon and sugar – that’s definitely the kiwi-connection as DJ considers this the most absurd topping ever.

Fruit Leather

How beautiful is this?  Dave & I made this in our fancy new dehydrator last night.  Ethan and Mum picked the strawberries and 8 hrs later voila! This flavour was strawberry-kiwi and we also made strawberry-apple-banana which was the yummiest.

I made this last night and everyone loved it!  I made it vegetarian but you can go to town and get creative with any ingredients, Feta and smoked salmon would be yummy!

Weekend Frittata

Serves 6
Breakfast or brunch has never been better than with this unique twist to the average omelet.

2 tbsp oil
375g Vegetable Mix
700g Potato chopped flat, and microwaved or par boiled
1-2 ham steaks, diced
6 eggs – I used 4
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 1/2 cups milk or lite cream
1 cup grated cheese (use tasty, camembert or Parmesan)

Method

1. Heat the oil in a deep, oven-proof frying pan, preferably one that is 26cm wide. Add the

Vegetable Mix and toss quickly to just brown. Set aside.
2. Add the Potatos and cook over a high heat to begin to brown. This may be best done in two

batches. Scatter over the vegetables and diced ham.

3. Beat together the eggs, mustard, milk or lite cream and grated cheese. Pour over the

potato mixture and cook over the direct heat for 2 minutes.

4. Transfer to a 180oC oven for 45-50 minutes or until the frittata is golden on top and the

filling is firm to the touch.

5. Serve the frittata with your favourite relish or chutney.

After a somewhat wasted afternoon….

of dealing with Hewlitt-Packard on the phone about my busted printer (getting your faulty product replaced is like the prize you win for being on the phone with them for 1.5hrs, turning your printer off and on like a million times, printing numerous test pages so they hear the cacophony of noise the printer makes as it’s carriage jams every time you print a page!)…….anywho……dinner was delicious.  Fresh spring rolls with satay tofu, bean sprouts, coriander, carrot and cucumber.

F is for Fish….Y is for Yum

Ethan has learnt many things from watching 3 fishing shows every Saturday for the last 1.5 years, one of them is how to prepare fresh fish. He was most impressed that the Terakihi we bought from Foodtown was already filleted (flayed in Ethan speak), so all he had to do was flour it and throw it in the ‘boaties fry-pan’;
