Czech Egg Pancakes Recipe
Good morning my dear readers.
Welcome on my pages where I would like to show you some great recipe from Europe. So, let's start today with something simple but tasty perfect for breakfast mornings...
Lard or vegetable oil for frying
Jam with a flavor up to your decision to spreading
1 lb (450g)
plain wheat flour
2 pints (around 1.15 litre)
milk (whole milk recommended)
1. Get a large mixing bowl. Pour the flour, sugar, salt into a mixing bowl and mix it together. Add eggs, whole milk and whisk briskly to make the pancake batter. Then leave it to rest for at least 20 minutes. It helps release gluten from flour.
2. Heat a large pan (8 inches size is recommended) to medium heat. Add a small piece of lard and spreads it onto the bottom of the pan. The pan is ready when you drop a couple of blobs on the bottom of the pan and the batter starts sizzling and you can see a lot of little bubbles around.
3. Then pour the batter by using a ladle into the pan. Tilt the pan to helps the batter spreads and make your pancakes nice and equally thick. Cook for 90 – 120 seconds or it turns soft brown, then flip it over (spatula recommended) and cook for another 60 – 90 seconds.
4. Now your pancakes are ready. Best serve immediately when it is still hot, with a fruit jam. There in Europe, most people prefer strawberry or an apricot flavor. If it is too sweet it is good to add some white yogurt. It makes the flavor a little bit sour.
And that's it.
Tips!: If it is too sweet you can try a salt version when the pancake can be filled with ham, chicken meat, cheese, etc. It is really up to your imagination.
Ok. I hope you like my recipe and I wish you have a nice day.
Bye for now.
