It has been a little while since I have been able to post a new video. I am now on BBC Three Counties Radio six days per week (Monday – Saturday 12-3) plus I am very busy writing my second book. So time has been a little… stretched!
So when Tate & Lyle approached me to do a video for pancake day (as part of the campaign to get the nation flipping for Pancake Day), it felt like a good moment to get all the camera gear out. And with Matilda being 2 now and loving helping in the kitchen, there was no way she was not going to be involved. Check out her egg breaking technique – why bother when you can just throw the whole thing into the bowl!
I made two fillings to go with these classic French style pancakes – a sweet apple, walnut and Golden Syrup version and a semi-savoury bacon and Golden Syrup version too… both of which were wolfed down by the kids!
For the pancakes
Makes 9 large pancakes
A good drizzle of vegetable oil
For the apple, walnut and golden syrup filling:
1/2 apple, thinly sliced
A little handful of chopped walnuts
A really good drizzle of golden syrup
A small knob of butter
A scoop of vanilla ice cream
2 rashers unsmoked bacon
A good drizzle of golden syrup
A dash of oil
