A colleague and a good friend of mine Nanouschska made some crazy delicious jams and I managed to get a hold of blackcurrant and rhubarb! Without any doubts this was an opportunity to make grandmas pancakes.
While spending summers at grandparents house, we would get these every week! Being a farm and acres of fields we would have everything fresh and even jams would be made out of fresh produce. This is why these jams need to be celebrated right! 👏👏
I had to modify pancakes slightly as sometimes amounts of oil used is insane. Preparing the mix is very easy. Mix 3 eggs with 400g of regular flour, 300ml of milk and 300ml of water. Mixing needs to be done in proportional addition. So after you mixed 3 eggs, added a pinch of salt and sugar, add flour. Mix. Add 100ml of milk. Mix. Add flour. Mix. Add 100ml of water. Mix.
That is your formula. At the end you will get watery mix. Don’t make it thick as it won’t spread out over the pan. When your mix is complete it should look like that! You can adjust the proportions depending on how many people you are serving to.
Turn on your cooker to medium heat, let the pan heat up and put oil in. It needs to cover the pan, otherwise pancake will burn. I like to keep it to as little as possible, due to health concerns, but these pancakes are meant to be quite fatty! 🤤
When hot, add the mixture rotating the pan to make sure it gets covered in time. This part requires practice as you will have to show your full both hand coordination and not oiling everyone around 💦
First side of pancake takes around 20s to fry and other side around 10s. Don’t burn it!
I usually add some icing sugar and fruit of your choice to mask how much oil I used. Make a bru. And Enjoy with a nice jar of homemade jam like the one Nanouschka made! 🇳🇱
Free your mind with these. After you practice a few times, you will find that you can use one egg, make them smaller or even bigger. Use different jams or even maple syrup. It is so easy!
Blackcurrant Jam disappeared in one go. It was seriously delicious.
In case you are interested, let me know and I will request a recipe from Nanouschka. It is definitely worth making jams yourself. It always taste better when you make it yourself.
