Make An Old Fashion Pancake Recipe And More

By Andrew Cook

Today’s pancake is a relative of a Roman pancake recipe that was made of milk, eggs, and flour with spices added. It was more of a flat bread but was called 1/5 RoeAlita Dolcia 1/5 R? and was served with fruits. Another version was stuffed with cheese and meat and served for lunch or dinner. Europeans made pancakes in the medieval times that more resemble the ones we have today. The first published recipe was in a 1430 English cookery book.

Breakfast is the best time to serve pancakes. Pancakes are the star of the show on Shrove Tuesday. This is the day right before Lent starts when one is allowed to eat those things thought of being a luxury, as pancakes are. The next day starts lent when one should sacrifice and often people give up sweet things during the period of lent to Easter.

There are pancake recipes from Germany where they use potatoes and the Jews have the potato latke, a form of potato pancake. In France a pancake might be thin and filled with fruits and called crepes. Indonesia has a version called dadar gutung, the poori comes from India and the bao bing comes from China. The Dutch make panekoeken or buckwheat pancakes to serve their families. There are also puff pancakes that rise high and are served with fruits and covered with confectioner’s sugar.

Americans consume thousands of pancakes per year. Sometimes some of the oldest recipes are the best and this is the case with pancakes. The following recipe is delicious and the pancakes come out light and fluffy. With a sweet syrup they are wonderful served in the morning or afternoon and can even make a great dinner served with sausage. To make a old fashion pancake you will need to sift into a bowl one and one half of a cup of flour, three and one half of a teaspoon of baking powder, one half of a teaspoon of salt, and one whole tablespoon of granulated sugar. Mix this together well then move it to all sides of the bowl leaving an opening in the center, like a volcano. Into the center of your volcano pour in one and one fourth of a cup of milk and then one whole egg. Three tablespoons of butter should be melted and that is poured in as well. Using a fork scramble the egg in the milk combination and pull in some of the dry ingredients. Keep going until all the dry ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Place a frying pan or griddle on the stove and get it hot. Pour about one tablespoon of oil onto it. Using a ladle fill it with batter and pour it on the griddle or pan. Bubbles will start to form all round the edges of the pancake and when they do appear turn the pancake over. Once the bubbles come back all around the edges you can remove the pancake to a plate and put some butter on it. Make sure to have syrup nearby to pour over the pancake.

You can change the recipe in order to provide your family with a little bit of variety. Buttermilk pancakes can be made by using the recipe above and instead of milk use buttermilk. Orange flavored pancakes can be made by using orange juice instead of milk and adding some orange zest to the batter. Almond flavored pancakes are luscious with a little honey on top and they are easily made by adding 1 teaspoon of almond extract to the batter. Make blueberry pancakes by added three fourths of a cup of blueberries to the batter. Strawberry pancakes are made similarly by adding three fourths a cup of sliced strawberries to the batter. If you love chocolate just add to the batter a half cup chocolate chips. These should be served with whipped cream on top.

It is possible to make chocolate pancakes and they may not go over well for breakfast. They will, however be a hit for dessert. To make them you will need two cups flour, three teaspoons of baking powder, and one fourth of a teaspoon of salt in a bowl. Mix them well and then add three fourths of a cup of granulated sugar. Continue by adding a cup of milk and four teaspoons butter. Mix this up very well then add two large eggs and beat well. Now is where the chocolate comes in. Mix in 6 teaspoons powdered cocoa.

Put a skillet on the stove and get it hot then add the oil. Ladle some of the batter onto the oiled skillet and once bubbles start to gather around the edges of the pancake turn it over. Once the bubbles start to appear again you can place the pancake on a plate and put a little butter on the top. When you are ready to serve just put a few spoonfuls of whipped cream on top and for extra punch sprinkle semi sweet chocolate chips over the whole thing and allow them melt.

Pancakes are good any time of day and kids just love them. Whip up a batch and watch your family happily devour them in just seconds. Use the Old Fashion recipe and make each batch different with the variations or you can whip up the chocolate pancakes and serve them for dessert.
