Sugar and lemon. Works really rather well. Of course our pancakes are a lot wider and flatter than americans. Much more towards a French-style crepe than a think, spongy american pancake.

(I have a lot of time for american pancakes, but they are different)

Yes, I always turn to Brits for cooking advice.

How the fark can you ruin a pancake?  Put it on medium heat and let it go for about 90 seconds on both sides.  Doesn't anybody know how the fark to cook anymore?  Don't lie, I know you farks can cook bacon no problems.

/Pecan pancakes w/real butter and real maple syrup FTW.

Lemon and powdered sugar on a Dutch Baby? I'll take that over bacon and eggs almost half the time.

I don't want to go to a Brit Lemon Pancake party.

Subby thinks squeezing lemon all over British food is a bad thing??
 
2014-03-04 09:47:57 AM
Sidebar:  Rather than adding milk, you can use Sprite (or 7-UP or pretty much any other citrus-y soda...or even plain ol' Club Soda) and the pancakes come out VERY much lighter than they do using milk.

Add a tbsp of lemon juice in with the milk for a buttermilk substitute. Also, a bit of baking powder and sugar for sweeter, fluffier pancakes.
 
2014-03-04 09:57:05 AM
Fluffy isn't really a quality we look for in pancakes over here. They're too thin for that.
 
2014-03-04 09:57:15 AM
Pancakes please. Pancakes please. Serve me up pancakes please.

Lemon curd and marscapone sounds great on a pancake.

( Mars' Capone ... that was Al Capone's great great great grandfather down in Natchez.)

Id squeeze lemon on a few Brits!

I don't do British pancakes or fancy pancakes, but this recipe's perfect:

Mix:
1&1/2 cups flour
1  tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
1&3/4 tsp baking powder

Separate two eggs. Beat egg whites til stiff and set aside. Beat yolks and add to 8-10 oz milk. Add milk+yolks and 3 Tbsp melted butter to dry mix and blend together. Lastly, stir in the egg whites.

Then cook. Flip when bubbly.

NobleHam: til stiff


Err, til slightly stiff. You should get some peaks. You're not making meringue though.

Sounds good. I'm going to try your recipe tomorrow morning.

As a scout leader who runs the kitchen for cub scouts (yes, I am insane) the freaking best thing is the waffle makers that flip.

For home/assisted living (where my father before he died invited tons of folks when I was cooking) the toastmaster 4 unit pancake maker is awesome.

When did you steal my mom's recipe?
(Better if the milk and eggs are room temp.)

demaL-demaL-yeH:
(Better if the milk and eggs are room temp.)

Unless otherwise noted, all recipes call for room temperature ingredients. Cooking was perfected before the advent of refrigeration.

Anyhow, the biggest mistake people make with pancakes is beating the mix too much. It's not supposed to be finely blended, you'll lose the bubbles from the baking powder.

what if you only have powdered milk, how much powder do you use?

I'm a British ex-pat.  So I like both British pancakes w/sugar and lemon and American pancakes with maple syrup.   When I was a kid we used to stop at a "Little Chef" and I used to love what might (if generous) be described as "American-style" pancakes with "maple-flavoured" syrup.  Fwiw, the same recipe we used for (British) pancakes can be made into Yorkshire pudding too.

Is it IHOP's National Pancake Day already? Why yes, yes it is. March 4. Coincidence? I don't think so. The Big Pancake Lobby has immense power.

Why not just celebrate Pancake Tuesday with the Church of England? Wait, wait, I know the answer to this one ... atheists would sue you. Christians would whine about the War on Pancake Tuesday. We'd have to give equal time to Soul Cake Tuesday and the Soul Cake Duck .

But atheists can't sue IHOP because it is not a religion. At least it's not a religion around here. Perhaps in Middle America.

Ah, the strange and perverse ways in which commerce, religion and politics entwine with cookery.

I'm surprised that the fruit-growers haven't started a Belgian waffle with fruit day.

Then again, the fruit growers have no advertising and marketing budget to speak of, except for those Ontario Fruit commercials on TV. and maybe the giant and nasty orange juice lobby with it's top notch collection of right wing loonies as spokes persons.

Tuesdays used to be the happiest day of the week because it was new release Tuesday at the video store. But now I have everything and there are only so many new releases you can buy.

But today is special. It is March 4, the release day for Venture Brothers Season V.

Yaaaaaay!

Eight episodes.

American seasons are shrinking quickly to British levels (6 episodes seems to constitute a Britcom series in the UK, and that is really sad because they always leave you wanting at least 20 episodes more if they are watchable at all.)

I also have a movie on my list this week. Two, count them two DVDs I will fall asleep before watching because that is what happens when I eat a Chicken McNugget meal nowadays.

I'm old. Prematurely and surely old. Old enough to remember the first TV run of nearly every cartoon that is worth watching.

Fun Fact: Crusader Rabbit, the first made-for-TV cartoon is the worst crap I have ever seen. It makes Rocket Robin Hood and The Wonderful World of Oz look like great art.

VladTheEmailer: Fwiw, the same recipe we used for (British) pancakes can be made into Yorkshire pudding too.


British pancakes have suet in them?
 
2014-03-04 02:35:01 PM
I'll just leave this here :

2 eggs
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons salad oil
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Beat eggs and then add the other ingredients, continuing beating until smooth
Sprinkle a few drops of water on the griddle, when it is ready the water will dance
Pour batter from a large spoon or 1/4 cup measure, Turn pancakes as soon as they rise
but before any bubbles break, now bake until sufficiently brown
Serve with drawn butter and syrup

I've made these at home, on camping trips and other gatherings. so long as your griddle is hot enough (but not to hot)  they turn out light fluffy and delicious  serve with the mentioned drawn butter and real maple syrup, some bacon and eggs over easy on top of each stack and you'll have everyone who eats them begging you to do it again every time breakfast is served

source :   http://pages.suddenlink.net/robak/recipes/pancakes.html#pancakes

see also waffle recipes on that page equally as good.
 
2014-03-04 02:35:26 PM
1 cup flour
1 egg
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp vanilla
2/3 cup milk
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 tsp baking powder
pinch salt

Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, then combine until almost smooth. The batter should run off the spoon, if not add milk 1tbsp at a time. Cook on one side until good and bubbly, then flip and watch those suckers rise. I've made pancakes 3/4" thick with this recipe.

Don't stack more than 2 pancakes while waiting for others to cook, otherwise the weight will flatten the bottom pancakes.

Only ever serve with real maple syrup. Never that artificially flavored corn syrup shiat.

Looks good, but that would be considered blasphemy in my family.

Every single one of you saying 'lemon':

Only if you're putting zest directly into the batter, where it belongs.

The rest should be made into lemonade.
/bout to go make orange pancakes right now.

THIS. British pancakes have a bit of a chew to them as well. Texturally, they are far superior to North American pancakes.

Belgian here. I make my pancakes like my mom makes them. Eggs, sugar, 2 parts milk, 1 part soda and a bottle of Duvel (blond beer). Even as a kid I used to eat 'm like that and there's nothing wrong with dlkfldkfjs vdljdfsfksqqjlf fezleefioirzh
