This is what I like to call a little slice of Christmas before December comes around. American pancakes are one of my favourite things (other wise I wouldn’t make sooo many of them) and I really happy with these. When these pancakes are cooking your whole kitchen, or even your house will smell just like Christmas!
3 Eggs (I used medium sized)
115g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
30g Granulated Sugar
1tsp Ground Mixed Spice
70 ml Milk
Pinch of Salt
Two Mixing Bowls
Whisk or Electric Hand Whisk
Ice Cream Scoop (optional)
First things first, measure out your ingredients. Then have two mixing bowls ready and separate the eggs, putting the whites in one bowl and the yolks in the other. If you can avoid getting any egg yolk in there do so, but if you do get some, don’t worry – you will just have to whisk the whites for longer! I separated the egg whites from the yolk by breaking them into a bowl and scooping out the egg yolks with my hand, letting the whites drip through my fingers. I find this the best method for me, but do whatever works for you.
Add the flour, sugar, ground mixed spice and milk to the egg yolks and mix until it resembles a smooth thick batter.
Add the pinch of salt to the egg whites’ bowl and whisk until it forms stiff peaks. This will take a while if you are doing it by hand so be patient.
Once that is done, slowly fold your egg whites into the thick batter mixture. Again, take your time with this as you will want to keep as much air in the mixture as possible to make them fluffy.
Add a little oil to a pan and heat on a medium heat. Pour some of your mixture into the pan (I used an ice cream scoop and did two scoops of batter for each pancake), hint: I have found the smaller you make the pancakes in the pan the thicker they will be. Leave to cook until you see little bubbles popping and, when there is only a little bit of uncooked batter in the centre, flip the pancake over and cook until the pancake is firm and golden on both sides.
Serve them however you like, but the granulated sugar and ground cinnamon should mean that they have enough flavour without adding anything more.
