Lent Diary: Wholemeal pancake day.

A departure for pancake day. I decided that I’d had enough of being up all night with indigestion after eating pancakes and devised a wholemeal pancake recipe. It was quite tasty and the pancakes held together so here it is:

(Makes 4 or 5)

  • 30g plain wholemeal flour
  • 30g spelt flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 135ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • pinch of salt
Method: Whisk all ingredients together with an electric hand whisk except the butter. Leave to rest for at least an hour. Melt the butter and whisk in just before cooking. Take a medium non-stick frying pan then heat with a little bit of butter until it is beginning to smoke slightly.
Add a small ladleful of the mixture (or a couple of tablespoons). Cook until top is solidish (a few minutes) then turn, eat with favourite filling (bananas and crème fraiche was good).
Not a particularly sugary day. Just a bit with the pancakes.
