pancakes-cooking

It only comes once a year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy them all year round, that’s right - it’s Pancake Day! The one day of the year you won’t be finding an excuse to get out of making a cooked breakfast. The one day of the year where it’s acceptable to have pancakes (or some variation of) for every meal of the day. The one day you can revel in your love of pancakes… Absolute heaven!

But, shouldn’t that be every single day? We thought you might agree!

If there’s one thing we love more than pancakes, it’s the opportunity to put all of our kitchen utensils and products to good use. The basic ingredients of the pancake require things being weighed, sifted, beaten and then fried into thin, crepe-like perfection!

Pancake Life Skills

If you’ve never made a pancake before, then you’re lacking in a serious life skill. Try your hand this year, with this easy to follow recipe:

Ingredients:

100g plain flour
2 eggs
300ml semi-skimmed milk
1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
Pinch of salt, to taste

The method can be found here on BBC Good Food.

Please note: The first pancake, possibly two, are never going to be perfect, so don’t be disheartened; they’re a sacrifice for the perfect batch to follow!

Experimental Toppings

The traditional pancake topping is, of course, lemon juice and sugar but there is a whole world of possibilities out there for you.

Here are a few of our favourites for you to try out this year:

  • Chocolate chips, peanut butter and banana
  • Fresh blueberries and raspberries with syrup
  • Buttermilk pancakes with caramelised banana and hazelnuts
  • Salted caramel and pretzels
  • Mango, honey and Greek yoghurt
  • Strawberry, almond and caramel sauce
  • Mushroom and brie
  • Salmon, mushroom and hollandaise sauce
  • Spinach, mushroom and cottage cheese

As pancakes melange so well with both sweet and savoury, the possibilities are literally endless.

So, this year put your prized Brabantia utensils to proper use because we love a good old excuse to get our top-notch kitchenware out. Get creative with your pancakes, break all the rules and eat pancakes at least once a week; not just on this day, and your life will change for the better.

If you want to join the crowd and kit out your kitchen in top of the range Brabantia utensils and accessories, then go wild this spring. We have it all, from kitchen scales to canisters and food warmers to sieves, everything you need for the perfect Pancake Day!
