Dorset Pancake Day

Pancake1

Tuesday 25 February is Pancake Day! This year, why not celebrate some of the fantastic local produce from Dorset and the West Country? There are some great suppliers of local eggs, local milk and local flour, and you can then top your home-made pancakes with some delicious Liberty Fields Apple Syrup, for a really special treat. Many of our stockists will have all you need for a delicious Dorset Pancake Day!

Check out our simple recipe below.

Ingredients
100 gr plain flour
2 large free-range eggs
300 ml milk
1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil plus a little extra for frying
To serve: Liberty Fields Apple Syrup, fruit

  1. Put the flour, eggs, milk, 1 tbsp oil and a pinch of salt into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter. Set aside for 30 minutes to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.
  2. Set a small frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper. Get the pan really hot, then turn down slightly. Using a ladle, pour some batter into the bottom of the pan and swirl it around to cover the whole base. You’ll either have too much or too little on the first one but you should then be able to judge how much you need.
  3. Keep the pan moving and after about a minute, slide a palette knife (or a normal knife) underneath to see if the first side is cooked. Then carefully turn it over. The other side will need less time.
  4. Flipping is optional!
  5. Serve with a drizzle of Apple Syrup and blueberries, raspberries, nuts, Woodlands Dairy yoghurt, Baboo Gelato Icecream – whatever takes your fancy. And enjoy!
