According to Wikipedia’s reference for Shrove Tuesday pancakes represent the sun in pagan mythology and eating them gave power, light and warmth of the sun. Pancakes were also a way of using up rich food before the fasting of lent in the Christian religion. Either way these delightful disks are a treat with sweet or savoury fillings and I like the association with the life giving sun when it has been so cold recently. Enjoy….
3 large eggs
50 mls Lactose free milk
100g of wheat free, gluten free flour
Pinch of salt
Weight out the flour into a mixing bowl and add the eggs and a small pinch of salt.
Mix well and add enough milk to make a thin batter that coats the back of a spoon.
Pour the batter into a measuring jug.
Heat the frying pan and spray some oil – pour in enough batter to thinly coat the bottom of the pan and move the pan till the batter is even and pour off the excess back into the measuring jug.
Cook for 30 seconds maximum till dry and and flip over the pancake to cook the other side.
Serve warm with lemon juice and sugar (traditional way) or anything that takes your fancy!
